Saturday 18th August

Bognor Regis Town   3 – 0   Bishop’s Stortford  | Nyewood Lane  |  Att: 482

A display of late firepower heralded another win for Bognor at Nyewood Lane. Brad Lethbridge’s goal [72′] saw the hosts on their way before a brace from Dan Smith [76′ & pen 82′] completed the day’s work to maintain Town’s unbeaten start to the season. By contrast, Stortford are looking for their first triumph this term.

 

Brightlingsea Regent  0 – 3   Margate    | North Road | Att: 206

Margate’s first-half display was enough to give them all three points at North Road. Joe Taylor broke the stalemate after 14 minutes. Frannie Collin weighed in heavily with a brace before the half was out, first from the spot on 31 minutes and then ten minutes afterward to give Mike Sandmann’s side the win.

 

Carshalton Athletic   1 – 1    Kingstonian   | War Memorial Sports Ground |  Att: 419

The K’s fought back to claim their first point of the season at the War Memorial Sports Ground. Carshalton led through Ricky Korboa’s strike [34′] though just after the break, Louis Theophanous [48′] levelled as Leigh Dynan’s side took a share of the spoils here.

 

Corinthian-Casuals  1 – 1  Merstham   | King George’s Field | Att: 201

Something had to give in this match as both sides had been beaten in their first two league matches. The Moatsiders led on 18 minutes through Reece Hall’s strike though Casuals responded from the penalty spot two minutes shy of the hour mark through substitute Dannny Cunningham. Both sides took their first point of the season as it ended honours-even.

Dorking Wanderers   1 – 2     Lewes  | Meadowbank |   Att: 453

Lewes came away with the points in this battle at Dorking’s new Meadowbank ground. Luke Blewden put the promoted side ahead six minutes before the break. Omarr Lawson doubled the Rooks’ lead on 78 minutes to almost see his side home. Jason Prior bagged another goal two minutes later though the visitors claimed their first victory of the new season here.

Enfield Town  2 – 2  AFC Hornchurch   | Queen Elizabeth II Stadium |  Att: 443

The Urchins produced a stirring comeback to deny Enfield Town the win. Things were looking sweet for Town as Taofiq Olomowewe [18′] and Liam Hope [53′] goals put them in a good position. Though the ‘Never say die’ attitude of Jimmy MacFarlane’s men was on display again as Brad Warner pulled one back with a expert free-kick 11 minutes from time. Sean Marks completed the turnaround on the cusp of full-time as both sides also remain unbeaten.

Harlow Town   0 – 2      Worthing             |  The Harlow Arena  | Att: 220

The visitors withstood the challenge from ten-man Harlow to obtain the win at the Harlow Arena. Goals from Ricky Aguiar [25′] and David Ajiboye [90’+2] did the job to maintain the Woodside outfit’s 100% winning start to the season. Paul Rodgers was the man dismissed for the hosts.

 

Leatherhead  2 – 1  Haringey Borough   | Fetchams Grove  | Att: 335

The Tanners overcame Borough at Fetchams Grove to attain their first win of the season. Strikes from Shaun Okojie [18′] and Travis Gregory [31′] saw player-manager Nikki Bull’s team lead by two at the interval. Haringey halved that deficit two minutes into the second period through hot-shot Joel Nouble though Leatherhead held firm to get the points, Haringey are seeking their first win of the new season.

 

Potters Bar Town  1 – 1  Whitehawk    | Pakex Stadium  | Att: 174

The Scholars continued their promising start to the new campaign as they held Whitehawk here. Steve Brown put Potters Bar ahead on 34 minutes though that lead only lasted five minutes before Harry Shooman restored parity for the visitors. The hosts have taken seven points from their opening 3 matches while the Hawks have taken five from their three games.

 

Tonbridge Angels   1 – 0    Burgess Hill Town     | Longmead   | Att: 409

Tonbridge recorded a narrow win over over the Hillians at Longmead. Joe Turner grabbed the only goal on 26 minutes as Steve Mckimm’s team remain unbeaten. Burgess Hill will need to get that first win on the board soon.

Wingate & Finchley   0 – 3    Folkestone Invicta      | Summers Lane   | Att: 95

Invicta showed their capabilities with a good win at the newly-revamped Summers Lane. Johan ter Horst opened the scoring on ten minutes before second-half strikes from Adam Yusuff [50′] & Jack Evans [57′] completed the win and leave Wingate without a win in their opening three games.

That’s all for this week, thanks for reading.

This blog is centred on all things Non-League Football, mainly Match Reports of matches I've seen (mainly Essex Senior League (ESL) but also other Leagues) though it also houses the regular round-up's of the ESL action plus the Essex Olympian League divisions regularly. It also has the odd post about the scary world that we're all in, talking from a Mental Health perspective. Thank you for reading.
