Barkingside gained a fantastic 4-3 win away at Enfield on Saturday. Braces from David Laird and Jakub Berkowicz won the game for Gus Gulfer’s men.

Laird scored after 2 minutes with a cool lob over keeper Josh Knight, to give ‘Side a dream start to the game. It was the forward’s 13th goal, of what is proving to be a fine season.

‘Side’s joy was short-lived as on 8 minutes Enfield equalised. Forward Mohamed Mahmoud scoring past Jack Francis, after being sent through by James Briggs.

The scoring didn’t end there as on 10 minutes Gulfer’s men regained the lead. Jakub Berkowicz has been an inspired arrival since joining on-loan from Dagenham & Redbridge and his fifth goal for the club put ‘Side 2-1 up.

On 18 minutes Enfield equalised for a second-time. A long ball was flicked on by Matthew Thoma for Daryl Cooper and the forward knocked the ball past Francis to make it 2-2.

On the half-hour mark, Francis made an excellent save to tip a Briggs free-kick round the post. It was a great save from the keeper, considering it may have taken a slight deflection on its way towards goal.

‘Side were back ahead for a third time when Laird grabbed his second of the match on 34 minutes. No further goals were added in the first-half, which was a good thing as both the players, staff and fans needed a second to breathe after an entertaining first period.

On 66 minutes a long ball into the box caused confusion for Enfield. Keeper Josh Knight’s punch out could only find Berkowicz who coolly slotted home to make it 4-2, to seemingly put the game out of reach for the hosts.

In a thrilling final 20 minutes both sides had chances to score. Good work by Enfield sub Lewis Lorford-Page found Cooper in the area to grab a goal back for the hosts deep into added-time.

It didn’t matter though as ‘Side held onto secure a fine away win.

‘Side: Jack Francis, Ibrahim Conteh (George Ademiliuyi), Fionn Glancy (Liam Clifton), Paul Wright, Maxell Amoako, Jason Ajoodha, Danny Blake, Marvin Birch, Luke With, David Laird, Jakub Berkowicz.

Subs Not Used: Kobie Ambrose, Dale Lee, Kieron Walker-Browne
