.ENFIELD TOWN 3 FC UNITED of MANCHESTER 1

Enfield Town ran out 3-1 winners against FC United of Manchester in this season’s Brian Lomax Cup at a hot and humid Queen Elizabeth II stadium on Friday night.

The Trophy, awarded in memory of Brian Lomax (the inaugural chairman of Supporters Direct) is played for each year by two community-owned clubs and, on this occasion, a crowd of 403 including a healthy number from Manchester enjoyed a contest between two sides now playing in the third tier of the Non League game.

The game itself could well have been over within eight minutes as the hosts raced into a two goals lead courtesy of some defensive mishaps which allowed JOSH DAVIDSON and then BILLY BRICKNELL to put Enfield in control, A fine effort from MICHAEL DONOHUE brought FC United back into the game but then BILLY BRICKNELL scored again before half time to restore the two goal lead.

FC United improved hugely in the second half and were unlucky not to reduce the deficit further but with no additional scoring the game concluded with Enfield Town running out 3-1 winners.
