Welcome to the Enfield Football Tales
Football plays a significant role in the lives of many communities and older and younger people in Enfield.
Enfield Football Tales is an inter-generational oral history project. It captures the memories and experiences of professional and non-professional former players of Enfield Town and other Enfield football teams, people behind the scenes who help make it all happen and, not least, the supporters of all ages who support with a passion their teams.
