Bostik Division North  –  Saturday 22nd September

Barking   1 – 2   Maldon & Tiptree  | Mayesbrook Park  | Att: 57

The Jammers did the business thanks to a goal on each half. Shane Cojocarel’s 5th-minute strike kept up his good scoring form. George Sykes made it two [58′] before substitute Jack McQueen halved the arrears for the home side though the visitors took the points here, their 4th win this term.

Canvey Island   2 – 2   Brentwood Town  | Park Lane  | Att: 213

A crazy end to this match saw it end honours-even at Park Lane. Jordan Cox put the Islanders ahead three minutes before the break. That lead didn’t last long as Tony Stoke levelled [47′] against his former club. The Blues may have thought it was their day as Albert Levett’s 90th-minute spot-kick put them ahead though Cox had the final word deep in added-time to share the spoils.

Felixstowe & Walton Utd   2 – 1  Romford  |  Dellwood Avenue | Att: 261

Felixstowe rose to claim the points at Dellwood Avenue. Miles Pwell [13′] and Jack Ainsley [32′] goals put the hosts in a good place though Taylor Tombides’ goal six minutes before half-time kept Paul Martin’s side in it though they were unable to build on that so fell to their second loss of the season.

Grays Athletic  1 – 1  Mildenhall Town  | Parkside (3G) | Att: 215

Grays were held to a draw here at Parkside. Michael Mignot popped up again to put Ath ahead on 28 minutes though new signing Panayiotis Boxer’s equaliser eight minutes from time saved a point for the Hall, who are still to register a win this term.

Soham Town Rangers  0 – 1  Aveley  |  Julius Martin Lane | Att: 123

The Millers secured a good three points at struggling Soham thanks to Andy Freeman’s solitary goal seven minutes before half-time. Soham couldn’t recover and succumbed to their fifth league loss in six. Aveley have won four of their six league matches.

Witham Town   3 – 5   Basildon Utd  |  Gardiners Close | Att: 98

This thriller saw the Bees come awa with the victory at Spa Road. George Powell put the hosts ahead on 21 minutes though Reece Placid levelled only three minutes later for Marc Harrison’s side. Sam Ashford struck from the spot [31′] to put Witham 2 – 1 up though Eljay Worrell’s own penalty made it 2 – 2 at the break. Joe Turpin gave the visitors the lead on 53 minutes though Ashford again netted fron the spot [62’2 to tie things up.

That lead didn’t last until half-time as Lucas Rodrigues levelled for the visitors right on the 45 minute mark.

The match turned again in the first third of the second half thanks to goals from James Fraser [52′] and Henry Muggeridge [59′] that gave Whitehawk the victory. The Hillians are still yet to win in the Bostik Premier this term.

Regent held Casuals at King George’s Field. Jack Strange put the hosts ahead on the half-hour though substitute Matthew Baxter  [47′] restored parity for the visitors. Both sides haven’t got the ‘winning feeling’ that often so far this term.

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.

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

Potters Bar Town   3 – 0    Kingstonian  | The Pakex Stadium  | Att: 204

Bostik Premier Division Round-up (20.1.18)

Written by Scott W (Twitter: @ScottMHC14)

Hello & welcome to ‘bonus’ round-up of this weekend’s Isthmian Premier Division action here on my blog. Ahead of this weekend’s weather-affected programme, there was approximately three months of the season remaining before the end-of-season play-offs take over proceedings.

Here is the aforementioned round-up of the results this weekend:

Saturday 20th January

Billericay Town P – P Harrow Borough

| Venue: New Lodge

Despite the hard work of the club groundsman, the match referee deemed the surface unplayable due to a waterlogged pitch.

 

Burgess Hill Town P – P  Enfield Town

This match was postponed due to a waterlogged pitch.

 

Dorking Wanderers  2 – 2  Harlow Town

| Venue: Westhumble Community Stadium   | Attendance: 212

Mid-table Dorking were held at home by struggling Harlow at Westhumble. James McShane put the hosts in the first minute before Lewis Putman doubled the lead 11 minutes later. Harlow, who sold Junior Dadson to Cray Wanderers this week, got back into the match just before the break as Jared Small struck to halve their arrears. Toby Ajala completed the comeback for Town with the leveller 13 minutes from time. Wanderers’ unbeaten run extends to five matches now and sit 16th while Harlow’s mixed form continues, with five defeats in their last nine league matches as they remain 20th.

 

Dulwich Hamlet 1- 2 Merstham

| Venue: Champion Hill   | Attendance: 1,692

Dulwich were the victim of a spirited late comeback at Champion Hill, in front of nearly 1,700 fans. Hamlet led on the quarter-hour as Ashley Carew had put them ahead, though after the break a brace from Charlie Penny [77′ & 81′] turned the tide of the match and in doing so, handed Merstham their first win in seven league outings. League leaders Dulwich’s second defeat on-the-trot sees them concede ground to chasers Billericay who now have seven matches in hand on Gavin Rose’s side. Merstham rise to 17th spot after a super afternoon for them.

 

Folkestone Invicta P – P Lowestoft Town

This match was postponed, presumably due to a waterlogged pitch.

 

Kingstonian 0 – 1 Brightlingsea Regent

Leiston P – P Tonbridge Angels

Chiedozie struck again just four minutes later to wrestle the initative back for Steve Watt’s side. Three minutes after the break, Sam Blackman made it 3-1 before Chace O’Neill’s goal [65′] ensured a tight finish. Even so, Margate recorded the win and their unbeaten stretch extends to five matches now as they rise to 6th spot.

Wingate & Finchley 1 – 0 Metropolitan Police

Wingate edged to victory in this match between two play-off chasing sides at Summers Lane. After a match that didn’t quite fizz into life in the first half, five minutes after the break Wingate striker Afolabi Obafemi broke the deadlock to eventually seal the points over Jim Cooper’s determined Met side. The hosts’ have now won six of their last nine league outings as they go up to 9th place while Met Police are still on a decent run themselves with only three losses in their last nine matches after today. They reside in 8th place, a point ahead of their opponents here and just two points off the play-offs.
