Bishop’s Stortford’s club statement said: “From the 2019-2020 season Enfield 1893 F.C will be ground-sharing with BSFC at the ProKitUK Stadium. As many will know, Enfield F.C were one of the most successful amateur clubs until the Club was folded due to their former chairman’s debts. Enfield 1893 F.C were formed as a result and currently play in the Essex Senior League. The board of Enfield 1893 F.C approached BSFC and we felt that there were a number of synergistic opportunities that will benefit both Clubs going forward. This includes a true pathway through the club from youth teams, BSFC Academy, U18s, Essex Senior League to Bostik Premier standard football. It also brings regular Saturday pm football to the ProKitUK.”
