Hello and welcome to my midweek results round-up of the action in the Bostik Premier Division. How did your team do? Thanks for reading.
Monday 13th August
Carshalton Athletic 1 – 2 Worthing | War Memorial Sports Ground | Att: 341
Worthing came from behind to collect their second win inside three days at the War Memorial Sports Ground. The hosts led through Ricky Korboa’s strike on 21 minutes and it stayed that way at half-time. However, after Kealy’s brace on Saturday, The Woodside Park side had David Ajiboye to thank as his rapid brace [70′ & 71′] changed the course of the game.
Tuesday 14th August
Bognor Regis Town 3 – 1 Merstham | Nyewood Lane | Att: 502
Bognor recovered from an early setback to record their first win of the season. The Moatsiders led on 12 minutes through Gus Sow though that lead was soon erased as the hosts levelled through Bradley Lethbridge’s strike two minutes later. Further goals by Chad Field [30′] & Dan Smith [36′] roared Bognor to victory.
Brightlingsea Regent 0 – 2 Haringey Borough | North Road | Att: 156
Haringey struck either side of half-time to maintain their early unbeaten start to the season. Just as it looked as though it was going be goal-less at the interval, Joel Nouble’s penalty four minutes before the break put Borough ahead. Chinedu McKenzie’s 62nd-minute goal ended up being the difference and hand Regent their first defeat of the new season.
Corinthian-Casuals 1 – 3 Folkestone Invicta | King George’s Field | Att: 226
Invicta struck early to help them to victory at King George’s Field. Kieron McCann struck in the first minute of the match before Johan ter Horst doubled the lead for the visitors on 13 minutes. Casuals halved their arrears on the quarter-hour thanks to Hamilton Antonio’s goal. McCann struck again for the visitors on 73 minutes for his brace and his 3rd goal of the burgeoning season to see Folkestone to victory.
Enfield Town 2 – 1 Bishop’s Stortford | Queen Elizabeth II Stadium | Att: 459
Two first-half goals saw Enfield obtain their second straight win. Sam Chaney [12′] and Sam Youngs [26′] were the goal-scorers for Town before Lewis Dark got one back for Stortford nine minutes from time though Stortford still fell to defeat here.
Harlow Town 1 – 1 Burgess Hill Town | The Harlow Arena | Att: 180
Harlow claimed a point thanks to a player they only signed earlier in the day. The Hillians took the lead on 24 minutes through Connor Tighe. Though JJ Da Cruz levelled for his new side with 20 minutes remaining and it ended that way as both sides collected their first point of the season.
Potters Bar Town 3 – 0 Kingstonian | The Pakex Stadium | Att: 204
The Scholars are ‘riding the crest of a wave’ at present as they kept up their 100% record this season. Goals from Keegan Cole [26′], Eoin Casey [32′] and George Nicholas [78′] sealed Potters Bar’s win, they still haven’t conceded a goal yet this term. Meanwhile, The K’s are yet to win this term.
Tonbridge Angels 0 – 0 Lewes | Longmead | Att: 552
These two sides battled to a stalemate in front of over 550 fans at Longmead. Lewes picked up their first point this season while Tonbridge are unbeaten with a win & a draw.
Wingate & Finchley 1 – 1 AFC Hornchurch | Summers Lane | Att: 142
Finally on Tuesday, the Urchins battled to a draw at Summers Lane. George Purcell put Hornchurch ahead after six minutes. Jimmy MacFarlane’s side led at the interval though Marc Charles-Smith levelled eight minutes after the re-start. The Urchins won’t be disappointed too much I’d think as they have four points from two matches.
