Supporters of Enfield Town FC are well on the way to hitting a £10,000 target to pay for floodlight improvements and other ground works.

Currently, Town fans had raised an impressive £8,828 and the club are optimistic they will hit their target within the remaining three weeks.

Donations have come from as far afield as the USA, Australia, Germany, Belgium and Israel, in the main from supporters who work or have permanently moved abroad and, in addition, a number of ex-Town and Enfield FC players have kindly added to the pot.

The driving force behind the campaign is director Ram Ismail, who has been leading on one of the club's initiatives designed to keep it afloat and ready for when football resumes post-COVID, although as yet the timing for that is unknown.

"Massive thanks are due, as ever, to everyone who has responded so generously in such difficult times," said Ismail. "We have been blown away by the amount of support. With our club, like so many others in non-league football, living on a relative shoestring, our members and other supporters never cease to amaze with their loyalty and enthusiasm.”
