First Team
Isthmian League Premier Division Tue 16 April Alcaline Stadium
Folkestone Invicta
Concord Rangers

We head into the final furlong of the season with back-to-back home games at the Alcaline Stadium, starting with Tuesday night’s visit of Concord Rangers


Invicta come into Tuesday night off the back of 4 consecutive home victories, the longest run of victories at Cheriton Road in over 2 years since a 5 game winning run in February and March of 2022. A win on Tuesday would equal that run and also be the longest run of home league victories since an 8 game streak in the middle of the 2018/19 season. 

Invicta are also unbeaten in 6 at home, champions Hornchurch the only side to leave the Alcaline Stadium with 3 points since the turn of the year, no doubt a run that Andy Drury will look to take into the summer as he looks to turn Cheriton Road into a fortress. 

Andy Drury will be hoping to have a full squad to pick from on Tuesday evening. Cameron Brodie missed out on Saturday with a knock so will remain a doubt for Tuesday, while Chris Sessegnon made the bench as he continues to recover from an injury picked up against Kingstonian last month. 

Ups & Downs

The final Isthmian Premier Division standing have largely begun to fall into place, with only 2 places left to be played for at either end of the table,.

Hornchurch have claimed the title and promotion to the National League South, while Chatham’s win on Saturday has secured their spot in the playoffs. Enfield Town and Wingate & Finchley both just need a single point to secure their own places in the playoffs and Horsham can join them on 73 points should they win at Lewes on Tuesday evening.

Concord Rangers were relegated last week along with Haringey Borough and Kingstonian. Margate and Cheshunt are left to fight it out to avoid the final spot but neither play again until Saturday. 

Outside of the Isthmian Premier Division, Dartford joined Dover in relegation from the National League South on Saturday. In the Isthmian South East Division, Ramsgate and Cray Valley played out a dramatic 2-2 drat to ensure their title battle goes right to the wire, while Sittingbourne, Chichester City and Three Bridges will join whoever finishes second in the playoffs. 

From The Manager

Manager Andy Drury spoke on Monday morning:

“We were not at our best on Saturday and were disappointed to lose to 2 goals from individual errors, 1 of them offside, but we want to pick ourselves up and bounce back on Tuesday night. With 3 games remaining we want to pick up all 9 points and we especially want to win our remaining 2 home games to continue a good run we have been on. We have been good at home since the turn of the year and a good home record is important to where we want to be next season.”


Invicta were beaten 2-1 in Essex earlier in the season, despite having taken the lead through a Jordon Ababio goal. 

The Opposition

It hasn’t been an easy season for Concord Rangers having been relegated from the National League South a year ago, the Essex side having their second successive relegation confirmed last week meaning they will be playing in the Isthmian North next season. 

Having been beaten 4-0 at Whitehawk on Tuesday to confirm their drop, Concord were 2-0 at Hashtag United on Saturday but produced an incredible turnaround to win 3-2 in injury time. 

The Beachboys have only won 2 other away games in the Isthmian Premier Division this season, at fellow relegated clubs Haringey and Kingstonian.
