Hello and welcome to a one-off combined ‘one-stop shop’ for all the Bostik League action this weekend, reduced due to the FA Cup action.

First up we have our Bostik North round-up, followed by results in Bostik Premier, Bostik South Central and Bostik South East divisions. Enjoy.

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. Enter stage right from the bench, ex-Redbridge striker Brian Moses who grabbed a brace [73′ & 82′] to settle a pulsating contest.

Bishop’s Stortford   0 – 1  Folkestone Invicta   | Woodside Park | Att: 323

Invicta continued their decent start to the season with a narrow win at Woodside Park. Kane Rowland struck eight minutes in to eventually win the match and Stortford have won one of their opening six outings.

Bognor Regis Town  3 – 1  Kingstonian   | Nyewood Lane  | Att: 539

Bognor continued their fine start to the season with victory over the K’s at Nyewood Lane. Dan Smith opened the scoring for the hosts on the quarter-hour though Kingstonian levelled on the stroke of half-time through Elliott Buchanan.

Burgess Hill Town   2 – 4  Whitehawk   | Leylands Park |  Att: 428

The Hawks overcame a spirited comeback from the Hillians to keep their very decent form going. Brannon O’Neill [6′] broke the deadlock before Andre McCollin [35′] and Ben Pope [42′] swung the pendulum back to the hosts. 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.

Corinthian-Casuals  1 – 1   Brightlingsea Regent   | King’s George’s Field | Att: 168

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.

Leatherhead   1 – 3   Harlow Town    |  Fetcham Grove  | Att: 324

Harlow finally achieved their first win of the season with a fine win at Fetcham Grove. Things started well for the Tanners as Robert Cullen put them ahead on 14 minutes.

Merstham  3 – 1   Potters Bar Town  | Moatside | Att: 133

Merstham ended the Scholars’ unbeaten start with a good win at Moatside. Dernell Wynter had put the visitors ahead nine minutes before the break though the hosts responded through Tom Kavanagh’s strike  [59′] before winning the match late on thanks to Tom Bird [88′] and Kershney Samuels [90′] goals, their second win of the new term.

Tonbridge Angels   2 – 1   Wingate & Finchley  | Longmead | Att: 632

Finally in Bostik Prem, Tonbridge continued their stand-out start to the season with victory over Wingate at Longmead. Tom Parkinson nodded Angels ahead on 33 minutes  before Sonny Miles doubled the lead five minutes later. Wingate broke through the hosts’ defence to pull one back through Tommy Tejan-Sie on the stroke of half-time – the first goal that Tonbridge have conceded in the league this season.

Burgess Hill Town   1 – 6  Enfield Town     | Leylands Park |  Att: 423

Enfield Town smashed the Hillians at Leylands Park. The visitors were in a commanding position at half-time thanks to Liam Hope’s opener on the quarter-hour plus goals from Matt Johnson [28′] and Sam Youngs [34′]. The rout continued after the break as Johnson got his second on 50 minutes. Pat Harding pulled one back for the demoralised hosts with 15 minutes left Youngs [85′] matched Johnson’s efforts before Ryan Blackman added a late sixth to secure Enfield’s third win of the season. Burgess Hill have only a point from four games.

 

Folkestone Invicta  3 – 2   Harlow Town   | Cheriton Road | Att: 374

This encounter had twists & turns in abundance. Invicta led on 22 minutes through Ade Yusuff though Harlow levelled 12 minutes later through Jason Raad.

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.
