I have two identical tables and I want them to be a page width long, many thanks in advance.

Instead of tabularx, I'd recommend using tabular* in combination with @{\extracolsep{\fill}}. Since \footnotesize is quite small and both tabes easily fit into the available space with a larger font size such as \small, you might want to consider replacing \footnotesize with \small.
