The same thought occurred to me after my initial posting. It's got to be worth asking Enfield the question. There aren't any more fixtures until New Year's Day.

I have to say the list of Boxing Day fixtres includes a few funny ones and not a lot of thought seems to have gone into the pairings. I believe clubs are invited to express a preferred opponent for Boxing Day, so maybe they've obliged as many clubs as they could then the rest have just had to make to with what's left?

Billericay Town vs AFC Hornchurch
Bury Town vs Leiston
Enfield Town vs Dulwich Hamlet
Grays Athletic vs East Thurrock United
Hendon vs Wingate & Finchley
Kingstonian vs Hampton & Richmond Borough
Leatherhead vs VCD Athletic
Lewes vs Bognor Regis Town
Metropolitan Police vs Harrow Borough
Peacehaven & Telscombe vs Maidstone United
Tonbridge Angels vs Margate
Witham Town vs Canvey Island

Maidstone going to Peacehaven isn't great, but with three Sussex coast clubs one of them is inevitably going to be paired with a non-local opponent. I'd have though Maidstone v Tonbridge would be an obvious fixture, but then Margate would be lft with a long trip to somewhere. Although Margate to Tonbridge is a fair hike anyway.

Hamlet don't really have an obvious local derby; the closest is Kingstonian, which is a longstanding regular lague fixture dating from the 1920's. I'd have thought a better list would be:

Billericay v Witham
Hornchurch v Canvey
Maidstone v Tonbridge
Lewes v Peacehaven
Bognor v Leatherhead
Margate v VCD
Dulwich v Kingstonian
Hampton v Not Police
Hendon v Harrow
Enfield v Finchley
Grays v East Thurrock
Bury v Leiston
