Enfield Town strengthened their forward options in time for tonight's trip to Leiston by signing Craig Calver.

The 26-year-old, who lists Ipswich Town, Southend United and Cambridge City among his former clubs, was most recently on the books of Bostik North side Mildenhall Town and scored the winner in their 1-0 FA Trophy success at Barwell last month.

Andy Leese’s men made the journey to Suffolk in good spirits following Saturday’s 3-1 victory over Dulwich Hamlet, inflicting a first away league defeat of the season on the Bostik Premier leaders.

Although the manner in which the Towners took the lead was controversial – Simon Thomas appearing to foul keeper Preston Edwards – there was nothing contentious about how the home side went on to secure the win after the table toppers had equalised after the break.

Enfield had started the game positively, with Ryan Blackman having the first attempt at goal with a long-range effort that sailed over.

Hamlet responded with shots from Omar Koroma and Ashley Carew that keeper Joe Wright was equal to, before the dangerous Reise Allassani flashed a low drive just wide.

Despite the spell of pressure, it was Enfield who struck first in the 27th minute when Thomas contested a Danny Rumens cross from the left with the Hamlet keeper and appeared to head Edwards’ arm. Despite the visitors’ protests, the goal was allowed to stand.

Enfield were able to take their lead into the break, but their opponents’ efforts were to be rewarded in the 52nd minute when Allassani was slipped through and the striker calmly slotted past Wright to equalise.

Having got back on terms, Dulwich pushed for a second goal. Wright had to go full length to push behind a Carew free-kick, Koroma and Allassani sent efforts wide and the visitors also hit the post from a 64th-minute corner.

Within three minutes of that close call though, the Towners were to be back in front when Blackman picked up the ball in midfield, advanced and fired into the top corner from 20 yards.

Leese’s side then had to ride their luck at times, with Hamlet hitting the woodwork again from another corner five minutes from time, but in the closing stages Thomas was to be replaced by Ben Ward-Cochrane. And it was the substitute who was to make the points safe, driving home Mario Noto’s pass to make it 3-1.
