BetVictor Isthmian League - Saturday 5th October Round-up

There was a mix of BetVictor Isthmian League Premier Division and Emirates F.A. Cup Third Qualifying Round ties on Saturday.

BetVictor Isthmian League Premier Division  

Game of the day was at the Camping World Community Stadium where 2nd placed Horsham entertained table-toppers Hornchurch and it was the lower placed team that prevailed as an 80th minute goal from Charlie Harris gave ‘The Hornets’ the points which allowed them to leapfrog ‘The Urchins’. Folkestone Invicta took advantage of Hornchurch losing by moving into 2nd and above the Essex club courtesy of a 3-2 win at home against Brightlingsea Regent. Kieron McCann scored a brace for the Kent club with Jerson Dos Santos getting the other, whilst Romario Dunne and Billy Hunt, from the penalty spot, scored for ‘Regent’.

East Thurrock United moved into 5th place with an excellent 3-2 win at Worthing. Frankie Merrifield got a brace for the away side with Ben Marlow scoring the crucial third goal, although ‘The Mackerel Men’ had twice taken the lead through Reece Myles-Meekums and Joel Colbran. In the other game, goals from Ibrahim Olutade, Travis Gregory and Tommy Wood gave Leatherhead a 3-0 win over Cheshunt which saw ‘The Tanners’ climb out the bottom three.

Goalscoring Milestones

The 100th goal of the Premier Division season was Freddie Parker’s first goal for Cray Wanderers in their 3-2 home win against Margate on Wednesday 21st August. By the end of the game four more goals had been scored to give a total of 104 in 34 games, which gives a goal per game average of 3.06.  

The 200th goal of the Premier Division season was scored by either Chris Dickson (Hornchurch) or Reece Myles-Meekums (Worthing), as they both scored in the 51st minute of their respective games on Saturday 14th September. At the end of the games on that day, there had been 222 goals scored in total in 73 matches, an average of 3.04, so a slight drop in the rate compared to the first 100.

The 300th goal of the Premier Division season was scored by either Jerson Dos Santos (Folkestone Invicta) or Travis Gregory (Leatherhead) as they both scored in the 43rd minute of their respective games on Saturday. At the end of the games on that day, there had been 306 goals scored in 103 games to give an average of 2.97 goals per game, so the rate is still dropping slightly.

Emirates F.A. Cup

BetVictor Isthmian League Premier Division Clubs

There were again mixed results on Saturday, with three clubs going through, three going out and two needing replays. Starting with the good news! A goal in each half from Ricky Korboa have Carshalton Athletic a 2-1 win at former Isthmian League side Lowestoft Town, but who now play in the BetVictor Southern League Premier Division Central, who pulled a goal back deep into time added on at the end of the game. Our Kent neighbours Margate had an excellent 4-2 win at Salisbury of the BetVictor Southern League Premier Division South who are managed by Steve Claridge. Kadell Daniel gave Margate an early lead and by the break an own goal had doubled there advantage which was increased when Noel Leighton got his first of the game and although their opponents pulled one back, Leighton scored his second to clinch victory even if there was time for their opponents to get a second in the last minute. The third side through are Potters Bar Town who won 2-1 at South-Central Division Ware. Oluwaseun Akinsanya gave the home side an early lead but by the break the Premier Division side were on level terms following James Budden’s equaliser. The game then ended in controversial circumstances as Josh Hutchinson converted a last minute penalty in an incident which also saw Jordan Watson sent off and Leigh Rose booked for the home side and Bradley Sach for their opponents as the game ended in a brawl.

Two other sides have a second chance. Bowers & Pitsea drew 1-1 at North Division Canvey Island as having taken the lead through Bradley Warner after 68 minutes, their opponents equalised three minutes later with a strike from James White which means they must try again on Tuesday. The other team who will have to do the same is Kingstonian following their 1-1 draw at home against Vanarama National League South Weston-super-Mare who equalised with a 90th minute penalty. Reece Hall had gaven the ‘Ks’ the lead just after half-time, but their task was made harder when Jerry Puemo was sent off for two yellow cards, although they looked as if they had held on until the last minute heartbreak.

And now onto those that didn’t make it to the Fourth Qualifying Round. Enfield Town visited South-East Division Chichester City, who were only promoted to the BetVictor Isthmian League for this season having won the Southern Combination Football League (SCFL) Premier Division last season, but an 86th minute goal from Lloyd Rowlatt gave them a surprise 1-0 victory. In the all-Premier Division clash, Haringey Borough registered a narrow 1-0 win over Cray Wanderers with the deciding goal being a second half penalty from Dimitiri Froxylias. Which brings us on to Kings Langley and their mission in knocking out BetVictor Isthmian League Premier Division clubs! Following on from their 4-0 win over Folkestone Invicta in the previous round they won 3-0 at home against Corinthian-Casuals on Saturday.

Other BetVictor Isthmian League Clubs

Apart from those mentioned above, there were three Step 4 BetVictor Isthmian League clubs involved in the Emirates F.A. Cup, with two getting through and the other going out. Result of the day was achieved by North Division Maldon & Tiptree who thrashed South-East Division Chertsey Town 6-1, whilst Whyteleafe also got through courtesy of a 2-0 win at Cherry Records Combined Counties League Premier Division (Step 5) Abbey Rangers. Meanwhile, Tooting & Mitcham United couldn’t repeat their heroics of the last round when they beat Dorking Wanderers and they went down 2-0 at home against Poole Town who play in the BetVictor Southern League Premier Division South, so again a step higher.

They will of course be joined by Bromley, Dover Athletic and Ebbsfleet United as the Vanarama National League sides join at this stage of the competition.
