Enfield Town’s new era under Andy Leese and Darren Purse kicked off with a 6-0 friendly win over Amersham Town.

Enfield’s squad contained a number of trialists who were looking to impress the management team for a place in their side.

One trialist opened the scoring after three minutes, side footing in a pass from the right by Ryan Blake.

Four minutes later, Mickey Parcell added their second as he slotted home with a low right foot shot.

Towners Joe Wright made one of his very few saves of the day when he kept out an effort from Amersham on the 12 minute mark.

The visitors kept on the pressure, building a stream of attacks which resulted in Amersham’s keeper pushing a shot wide for a corner.

Blake made it three in the 39th minute when the home sides keeper spilled the ball and another trialist made it four three minutes before the break, netting the ball in from the left.

Leese made a number of substitutions as he experimented with various ideas and formations.

Two further goals were added to the away side’s tally.

Another trialist notched number five and the sixth goal was scored by substitute Harley Haag, 10 minutes from full-time.

Drew Roberts hit the post in the dying minutes as he should have made it seven, just before Wright kept out another shot as the game drew to its conclusion.

Assistant manager Purse said after the match: “It was good to get some game time as players get to know each other better.

But Tuesday’s home game against Chelmsford City will prove a much sterner test.

Earlier last week, Leese gave the Towner fans an update on his pre-season thoughts.

He told the club website: “Darren and I are working hard to put together an almost new squad, following the departure of last month’s squad.

“The pre-season work has been excellent in terms of the quality and demands we have made on the players. We have kept it lively, introduced some new work, and the response from the players has been first class,” he continued.

“Pre-season has a habit of throwing up surprises, and we still have some work to do to get the balance in the squad we like.

“I will be in touch regularly during the season, primarily through programme notes and online. “Darren and I are also happy to field any questions you might have in the Butler’s Bar after home games or indeed in clubhouses away from home.”
