BetVictor Isthmian League - Tuesday 26th November Round-up

There were only two games involving BetVictor Isthmian League Premier Division clubs this week, but there was also a result in the Alan Turvey Trophy (sponsored by Velocity) that deserves a mention!

Starting in the League, two of the more fancied sides met at The Queen Elizabeth Stadium, and Enfield Town prevailed with a 2-1 victory over visitors Carshalton Athletic. For the second game running Muhummadu Faal put ‘The Towners’ a goal up within the first minute and Billy Bricknell added a second in the 28th minute to put the home side in command. However, ‘The Robins’ fought back in the second half and pulled a goal back in the 54th minute through Paris Hamilton-Downes, but that was all they could manage as they lost their first game in nine, as Enfield Town moved up to 6th.

The other scheduled game between Bowers & Pitsea and Corinthian-Casuals was postponed as the pitch was unfit.

Moving onto the Buildbase F.A. Trophy and Hornchurch completed their giant killing act by beating Vanarama National League South Oxford City 4-1 on penalties after an exciting 4-4 draw after extra time in a game that went one way and then the other before being decided from twelve yards. Remarkably in the game itself, the first goal didn’t come until two minutes before half-time when Oxford City took the lead, but two minutes into the second half Chris Dickson levelled matters only for their higher placed opposition to take the lead again on the 65th minute and that was how it stayed until a minute from time when Lewwis Spence equalised. George Saunders then gave ‘The Urchins’ the lead three minutes into extra time, but they were pegged back two minutes later and then to complete an exciting start to the extra time, they regained the lead through Marvin Morgan in the 97th minute. Oxford City then equalised again in the second period of extra time and that was how it ended, to send it into a penalty shoot-out which the home side convincingly won, helped by  two saves from goalkeeper Joe Wright.

In the First round Proper, they will be at home against Dulwich Hamlet who won 2-1 at fellow Vanarama National League South side Chippenham Town.

 

And now onto that Alan Turvey Trophy (sponsored by Velocity) Group 4 game. In order to get the game played, East Grinstead Town agreed to switch the tie to Hastings United’s Pilot Field ground, but they probably wished they hadn’t as the home club registered an astonishing 12-3 victory!  

The main protagonist was Davide Rodari, who scored a hat-trick in the first half hour, two in the next fifty minutes and then another hat-trick in the last ten minutes, to give him EIGHT for the game, which unsurprisingly won him the ‘Man of the Match’ Award!

Not sure what the relative strengths of the two sides were (Stephen Smith didn’t play by the way as he was cup-tied) but the game saw Hastings United register their highest ever score and most goals by one player in a game, which was a just reward for everyone who worked behind the scenes to get the game on with just twenty-four hours notice.

A full round-up of the Trophy, with the current group standings will be on the website later in the week.
