BetVictor Isthmian League - Saturday 11th January Round-up

This weekend there were games in the BetVictor Isthmian League Premier Division, whilst three BetVictor Isthmian League clubs, two of which were from the Premier Division, played in the Buildbase F.A. Trophy Second Round.

After six weeks at the top, Folkestone Invicta were deposed as leaders following a 1-1 draw at home against Haringey Borough, whilst Worthing won 6-1 at home against Merstham to move into pole position. Invicta took the lead with ten minutes to go through Josh Vincent, but ten man ‘Borough’, who’d had former Invicta defender Salvyn Kisitu sent off early in the second half, equalised with a last minute free kick from Romoluwa Akinola. Meanwhile, at the Bibby Financial Services Stadium, Worthing registered their best home win of the season against Merstham who continue to court danger at the wrong end of the table and all this after Ollie Pearce missed a penalty in the fifth minute for the ‘Mackerel Men’! The home supporters didn’t have to wait long for the opener however, as on nine minutes Ricky Aguiar gave them the lead and Jasper Pattenden then doubled their advantage in the thirteenth. ‘The Moatsiders’ pulled a goal back on twenty-five minutes through former Worthing striker Shola Ayoola, but by half time Worthing had regained their two goal advantage when Alex Parsons hit a third. In the second half, further goals from Oliver Pearce, Aguiar with his second, and Marley Marshall wrapped up a convincing victory.

Horsham remain in 3rd following a hard fought 1-0 win over Corinthian-Casuals which saw them drop to second from bottom. The only goal came from a seventh-fifth minute penalty from substitute Harry Mills after Ron O’Toole had been fouled by Coskin Ekan, and to complete a miserable afternoon, Ekin then got a second yellow for dissent four minutes from time. Carshalton Athletic also won 1-0, at Lewes, and moved up to 4th at the expense of Hornchurch who were playing in the Buildbase F.A. Trophy. The game’s only goal came from Christie Pattisson on the stroke of half time. Cray Wanderers remain in 6th as they came from behind to win 2-1 at Bowers & Pitsea. The home side took the lead through a Bradley Warner penalty in the thirty-second minute, but goals in the second half from Joe Taylor and Rhys Murrell-Williamson clinched the points for ‘The Wands’.

Enfield Town dropped two points at home against Brightlingsea Regent, who climbed out of the relegation zone following a 2-2 draw. The away side took the lead after eleven minutes when  Jake Turner converted a penalty, but by the interval Sam Youngs had equalised for the home side, who then went ahead with ten minutes to go through Lyle Della-Verde, but there was still time for Romario Dunne to grab a late equaliser three minutes later. East Thurrock United moved up to 8th, leapfrogging Leatherhead as whilst ‘The Rocks’ won 1-0 at Margate thanks to a strike from their leading scorer Frankie Merrifield, ‘The Tanners’ went down 2-1 at home against Bognor Regis Town. Bradley Lethbridge gave the away side the lead, but just before half time, Charlie Hester-Cook equalised for ‘The Tanners’ and that was how it stayed until Tommy Leigh scored a ninetieth minute winner for the Sussex side.

An eleventh minute goal from George Nicholas gave Potters Bar Town a 1-0 victory over Bishop’s Stortford in a hard fought Hertfordshire derby, whilst Wingate & Finchley suffered a 2-1 defeat at home against Cheshunt, which sees ‘The Blues’ remain bottom of the table. Reece Beckles-Richards gave ‘The Ambers’ the lead and although Sean Grace equalised early in the second half, a Ryan Moss penalty saw Cheshunt take home the points to move them five points above the drop-zone.

The three remaining BetVictor Isthmian League clubs competed in the Second Round of this season’s competition.

North Division Aveley kept up their excellent record against higher placed sides this season when they won 2-1 at Premier Division Hornchurch to reach the last sixteen. Shad Ngandu gave the away side the lead with a ninth minute penalty, but right on half time ‘The Urchins’ leading scorer Chris Dickson levelled, also from the penalty spot. However, things then took a turn for the worse for ‘The Urchins’ as six minutes into the second half, Mickey Parcell was sent off and then two minutes later, Harry Gibbs hit the winner.

Kingstonian face a tough replay on Tuesday, following a 1-1 draw at home against Leamington of the Vanarama National League North. They were saved by a last minute goal from Dan Hector after an own goal from Fabio Saraiva after fifty-six minutes had given their opponents the lead.

The details of the Third Round draw will appear on the website in this week’s round-up towards the end of the week.
