The women’s first team will wrap up their summer on Sunday with a friendly against familiar opponents Enfield Town Development at the Old Spotted Dog Ground.
We’re looking forward to hosting a fellow fan-owned club for a second weekend in a row, after last week’s brilliant day against AFC Wimbledon Women.
Since then, the women’s first team have also lost 6-2 in a behind-closed-doors friendly against London Seaward on Tuesday night.
Previously this Enfield team used to be our divisional rivals but then moved into a reserves league set-up instead. Enfield Town Thirds took their place in our division and of course we met them in the cup final in May.
The season will begin the following Sunday, with CCFC heading to Brentford away at Bedfont Sports.
Before the game, the men’s development team will be playing a friendly against Wapping on the OSDG pitch. Kick off is 10.30am.
Clapton CFC vs Enfield Town Development is on Sunday, August 14 2022 at 2pm at the Old Spotted Dog Ground, 212 Upton Lane, Forest Gate, E7 9NP
