Saturday 11th September Round-up

Kingstonian continued their charge at the top of the table with a 3-1 home win against Brightlingsea Regent, in a game which saw their goalkeeper, Rob Tolfrey, make a club record 558th appearance for ‘The Ks’. Gus Sow gave the home side an early lead from the penalty spot and that was how the score remained until around ten minutes into the second half when Charlie Durling equalised for ‘The Regent,’ but goals in the last twenty minutes from Daniel Ajakaiye and Jason Banton made it five out of five for ‘The Ks’.

Enfield Town’s unbeaten run ended at Lewes where they went down 4-1, which saw the home side win for the first time this season. ‘The Rooks’ stormed into a 3-0 half-time lead with goals from Bradley Pritchard, Joe Taylor, and Taylor Maloney and despite Mo Faal pulling one back for ‘The Towners just after the break, Killian Colombie had the last word for the home side. That result saw Lewes move up to 7th and Enfield Town drop to 4th.

That defeat for Enfield Town, saw two Kent clubs benefit as Folkestone Invicta moved up to 2nd and Margate up to 3rd. At the BuildKent Stadium, Horsham took the lead just after the break before Ian Draycott, with his 141st goal for the club to equal Jimmy Dryden’s senior goalscoring record, and David Smith clinched victory for the home side to maintain their unbeaten start to the season. At Hartsdown Park, Margate entertained Leatherhead and were 2-0 up at the break thanks to strikes from Daniel Thompson and James Bessey-Saldanha, but Alexander Sami then scored a brace to level matters before Ben Greenhalgh and Vance Bola secured the points for the home side and leave ‘The Tanners’ bottom of the table.

Haringey Borough slipped down to 5th having suffered a surprise 1-0 defeat at home against Corinthian-Casuals who were obviously inspired by their midweek win over Worthing in their Emirates F.A. Cup replay. The all-important goal came from Alfie Bendle with nine minutes to go and moved ‘The Casuals’ off the bottom of the table. Another side to register an unexpected result were Merstham who won 1-0 at Cheshunt with the deciding goal coming from Tahjae Anderson, three minutes before half-time. That result saw ‘The Moatsiders’ move into 13th, a place above the side they beat.

Worthing moved up to 6th following a 3-2 win over East Thurrock United with goals from Ollie Pearce and Alfie Young in the first half and Aarran Racine after the break, although they twice had to come from behind as Johnny Ashman put ‘The Rocks’ 1-0 ahead and then Paulius Ditkevicius made it 2-1. ‘The Mackerel Men’s’ Sussex neighbours Bognor Regis Town moved up to 8th when Craig Robson’s goal just past the half-hour clinched a narrow 1-0 home win against Carshalton Athletic.

Bishop’s Stortford also won 1-0, beating Hornchurch with a goal from Frankie Merrifield after fifty minutes. However, that is only half the story as in the first half, Merrifield had seen his penalty saved by former ‘Bishops’ goalkeeper Joe Wright and then late on in the game, ‘The Urchins’ had a spot kick of their own, but this time Sam Higgins saw his penalty saved by Jack Giddens. Finally, in the remaining game, Bowers & Pitsea beat Wingate & Finchley 3-1 with the game seeming to turn on an incident right on half-time when ‘The Blues’ Alieu N’Jie received a red card for bringing down Quentin Monville and from the resultant penalty Lewis Manor put the home side ahead. Manor then added his second, again from the penalty spot, eight minutes into the second half, before he completed his hat-trick fourteen minutes later, and although Liam Smyth scored in the 86th minute for Wingate & Finchley it was too little too late.

These notes are written prior to the Cray Wanderers vs Potters Bar Town game being played at 3pm on Sunday. This will be included in the midweek round-up.
