It's ironic that the whol shambles has arisen because one Enfield player appeared when he shouldn't have done, yet when these crucial matches finally take place the likelihood is that other teams will be missing several players they would otherwise have picked. Absolutely hopeless.

It's natural that clubs feel aggrieved when deducted points - we did when Steve May was deemed ineligible for our first match of the season inn 2008 after a faxed registration form went astray - but ultimately Enfield Town have shafted several other clubs by refusing to accept their punishment, just as Thurrock did in attempting to overturn their relegation two seasons ago. At least the Isthmian League is consisent in its stance that the buck stops with the club when an ineligible player appears, regardless of any mitigating circumstances.

What annoys me is that Enfield only just sneaked into the final spot at the end of the season after losing 40% of their matches. The way they've reacted you'd think they'd actually been denied promotion. It's a one in four (at best) shot; in reality probably less, as (a) any matches they play will be away from home and (b) they would be facing sides who have proved better than themselves over 46 matches. (Yes, I am aware than Hamlet finished only marginally ahead of them in the final table.)
