BetVictor Isthmian League - Saturday 7th September Round-up

Premier Division

League points were put to one side on Saturday as the BetVictor Isthmian League Premier Division sides turned their attention to this season’s Emirates F.A. Cup  First Qualifying Round, and overall the results were encouraging as only two teams went out, one in an all-Premier Division clash whilst the others lost to a team from a lower Division.

The top four all had reasonably comfortable wins, Folkestone Invicta won 4-0 at South-East Division Whitstable Town with goals from Ira Jackson (2), Johan Ter Horst and Sam Hasler, whilst Haringey Borough, looking to repeat last season’s exploits, won 3-0 at home against another Kent South-East Division side in Herne Bay with their scorers being Lionel Stone in the first half and Georgios Aresti and Anthony MacDonald in the second. The current Divisional leading scorers are Hornchurch and they were again in prolific form winning 6-0 against Kempston Rovers of the BetVictor Southern League Central Division courtesy of goals from Lewwis Spence (2), Joe Christou, Micky Parcell, Chris Dickson and Matt Johnson. Carshalton Athletic continued their good run of late by knocking out South-Central Division Bracknell Town by virtue of a 2-0 win with goals from Christie Pattisson and Omar Koroma. To make matters worse the home side had Dan Bayliss sent off six minutes from time although by then the damage had been done.

Bognor Regis Town also registered a straightforward win, beating South-East Division Sittingbourne 3-0, all their goals came in the first half with Jimmy Muitt grabbing a brace and Bradley Lethbridge a third for ‘The Rocks’. Corinthian-Casuals put their wretched League form to one side, as having scored just three goals in six matches they beat South-East Division Sevenoaks Town 4-0 at home with the men on target being Nathanial Pinney who scored two (one from the penalty spot), Coskun Ekim and Reyon Dillon.

In a remarkable game at Spartan South Midlands League Premier Division Dunstable, our opponents next week Bishop’s Stortford came away with a 5-3 victory. Jamie Cureton and Ryan Charles got two apiece with Shomari Barnwell adding a fifth. All the goals were scored by the 55th minute and gave Stortford a 5-0 lead, but remarkably their opponents then pulled three back to set up a tense finish.

There were also wins for Bowers & Pitsea who came back from a goal down to defeat North Division Brentwood Town 2-1 with second half strikes from Quentin Monville and Max Cornhill, Enfield Town, who beat AFC Rushden & Diamonds of the BetVictor Southern League Premier Central Division, 1-0 at the Queen Elizabeth Stadium with Muhammadu Faal getting the crucial goal, and Potters Bar Town who won by the same score at Takeley of the Essex Senior League Premier Division, with Bradley Sach scoring the all-important winner in the 90th minute. Another side to grab a last minute winner were Margate as they clinched a 2-1 victory at Horsham YMCA of the Southern Combination Football League Premier Division with Elliott Reeves getting the last-gasp winner. Earlier Jack Richards had given ‘The Gate’ the lead only for their opponents to level matters with eight minutes to go. Wingate & Finchley registered a convincing 4-1 win at the Maurice Rebak Stadium against London Colney of the Spartan South Midlands League Premier Division, with goals from Alan Fleming, who got one in each half, Tanasheh Abrahams and Alphanso Kennedy.

When the draw was made for the First Qualifying Round, one of the outstanding ties as far as the BetVictor Isthmian League was concerned looked like being Worthing’s visit to South-East Division Hastings United and so it proved as the game ended in a 3-3 draw. Former Invicta defender Sam Beale gave the home side the lead, but this was cancelled out by Reece Myles-Meekums and Danny Barker who put the ‘Mackarel Men’ ahead, however Hastings then took a 3-2 lead before Shola Ayoola grabbed a 90th minute equaliser to save the game for the Premier Division side and they will go again on Tuesday.

Last Saturday, Lewes won 4-2 at Leatherhead and this week they met in the Emirates F.A. Cup, but this time the game ended 2-2. Jerry Nnamani gave ‘The Tanners’ a 2-0 advantage at the break, but Lewes fought back in the second half and goals from Kayne Diedrick-Roberts and Dayshonne Golding earnt a replay at Lewes on Tuesday. Horsham had a creditable 1-1 draw at Metropolitan Police of the BetVictor Southern League Premier Division South, Chris Smith gave ‘The Hornets’ the lead only for them to be pegged back in the second half but they couldn’t get a winner despite their opponents playing the last twenty-two minutes with ten men. East Thurrock United also drew 1-1, at home against Peterborough Sports of the Southern League Division One Central. Lewis Smith gave the home side the lead only for their opponents to peg them back after the break.

Two sides went out, Brightlingsea Regent lost 1-0 at Cheshunt in an all-Premier Division clash with Mo Camara scoring in the 90th minute, whilst Merstham lost 1-0 at South-East Division Whyteleafe with the all-important goal coming in the first half.

In the two games played on Sunday, both Premier Division clubs prevailed as Cray Wanderers defeated Bedfont Sports Club, of the South-Central Division, 2-1 with first half goals from Lee Lewis and Joe Taylor, whilst Kingstonian defeated Walton Casuals, who now ply their trade in the BetVictor Southern League Premier Division South, 2-0 with goals in the last twenty minutes from Ollie Cook and Louie Theophanous.

Other Kent Clubs

To complete the tale of woe  for the County’s clubs, you’ll notice in the results above that Sheppey United lost 4-1 at South-Central Division Chertsey Town. The only other remaining Kent side not mentioned, Sutton Athletic who play at Step 6 in the SCEFL First Division drew 1-1 at home against Flackwell Heath.

There will of course be more Kent sides in the competition going forward as the National League South sides enter at the Second Qualifying Round stage.

The Draw

The Second Qualifying Round will be drawn tomorrow and should be available on the F.A. website at around 1:00pm. Once I get the details an update will appear on our website.
