Ambers fall short in derby as Town come out 3-2 winners

This weeks match report has been written by Ambers Supporter Henri Jackson.

The Ambers unbeaten decade came to an end with a heartbreak 3-2 loss to near neighbours Enfield Town on Saturday. Goals from Mo Camara and Ryan Moss saw the hosts come back from twice from a goal down. The A10 El Classico got underway in front of a record 556 this season. The visitors took the lead within the first minute as a deflection fell kindly for Billy Bricknell, who gave Enfield the lead early on. Cheshunt depended immediately with constant attacks stemming from both wings via on loan star man Reece Beckles-Richards and His opposite number Zach Newton, forcing saves by Nathan McDonald. Enfield couldn’t hold on for much longer as a corner from Newton found Camara who tucked home Cheshunt’s first of the day, which triggered the rupture of ambers fans behind the goal. It took Town until the 23rd minute to grab their second, Sam Young’s corner flew into the far corner. More efforts from Young caused Ambers stopper Harry Girling some difficulties late in the first half. A dominant Cheshunt managed to grab a goal through talisman Ryan Moss, an Ibrahim Diallo knock back fell perfectly for Moss who swept home the equaliser. Cheshunt put the pressure on as the first half came to a close with a header from goalscorer Camara just edging over the bar from a Tanasheh Abrahams’ free kick. A penalty shouts on the stroke of half time proved to be costly for Cheshunt as it is waved away by the ref from Beckles-Richards’ attempt.

Half Time: Cheshunt 2-2 Enfield Town

The second half got underway in a somewhat rowdy fashion as Marc Weatherstone and Ibrahim Diallo are both cautioned within the first 5 minutes. Both sides give away free kicks on the edge of the box but they are both saved comfortably by both men in between the sticks. Cheshunt, dominating the game, have another chance through Beckles-Richards, who’s attempt was well held by Enfield Stopper McDonald to keep it flying into the top corner. Harry Girling pulled off a great save on 59 minutes in a one on one situation to deny Sam Young his second of the game. Cheshun dominant performance came to an end on the 61st minute when Della-Verde beat his man and crossed for Bricknell who unleashed a superbly hit volley to give Town the lead in the A10 El Classico. Cheshunt’s last chance of th half came through Ibrahim Diallo, who’s cross was palmed away by McDonald, who had been busy throughout the game. The final whistle blew and it was Enfield Town who came away 3-2 Victors and have the bragging rights in North London. It wasn’t a comfortable win for Town by any means with Cheshunt dominant throughout the first half and parts of the second. The ambers should leave the lane tonight with their heads held high.
