League's fans invited to Euro party!

Fan-run Enfield Town are inviting supporters from around the Ryman League to help them celebrate their growing friendship with their counterparts at Belgium's YB SK Beveren when they host Leatherhead next month.

The Towners beat the Beveren 8-2 last summer to hold onto the Supporters Direct Cup and officials at the club extended an open invitation to supporters this week to attend the fixture on Saturday 14 March after announcing that coachloads of fans from the Belgian outfit were heading across the Channel for a reunion party.

The fans of the Belgium club - formed by supporters out of the ashes of UEFA Cup quarter finalists KSK Beveren - are expected to arrive at the Queen Elizabeth II Stadium by lunchtime and not depart Donkey Lane until late that night.

In a post on the pages of the Ryman League's Facebook Group, the Towners declared: "This is an open invitation to all football supporters. We are welcoming the supporters of Belgium's first ever fans owned and run senior football club Beveren to Donkey Lane for nothing more than a social get together, drink, sing song and celebration.

"Our Belgian friends will travel in coaches on the day and will be at Donkey Lane from early afternoon till 9.30pm. So there's only one place to be on the 14th of March if a genuine football supporters' experience and celebration is to be embraced."

Like Enfield Town, the Belgian club holds the honour of being the first fan run club in their country.
