Saturday 18th November

Bostik Division North

AFC Hornchurch  2 – 0  Hertford Town    |  Venue: Bridge Avenue

Two second-half goals were enough to seal another three points for the Urchins. Nathan Cooper [66’] gave the hosts the lead before Brad Warner secured the points three minutes from time. Results elsewhere meant that this win for Hornchurch takes them above Canvey into second place in the table. Despite Hertford’s defeat they sit in a respectable 9th place.

Barking   1 – 0  Canvey Island

| Venue: Mayesbrook Park    |   Attendance: 117

Barking edged this encounter of two in-form sides to claim another win at Mayesbrook Park. Abs Seymour’s 20th-minute goal was enough to extend Justin Gardner’s side’s undefeated run to seven matches, which brings them into the play-off spots. Canvey suffered only their second loss in their last ten matches though slip to third spot.

Brentwood Town   2 – 0   Haringey Borough

|  Venue:  Brentwood Arena   | Attendance: 112

Brentwood ended a recent dry spell to take the points at the Brentwood Arena. Matt Price gave the hosts the lead from the spot on 24 minutes before Shomari Barnwell doubled the advantage with 59 minutes on the clock. This was Town’s first win in four league matches while Borough’s long unbeaten start to the season was ended here, they sit 4th.

Bury Town  0 – 0    Bowers & Pitsea

| Venue: Ram Meadow         | Attendance: 279

These two top-half sides played out a stalemate at Ram Meadow. Bury Town are winless in three league matches and reside in 8th spot while Bowers are unbeaten in four matches, sitting in 5th spot, nine points behind leaders Dereham.

Grays Athletic   2 – 2   Mildenhall Town

|  Venue: Parkside      |   Attendance: 177

The visitors came from behind twice to share the points at Parkside. Kieran Bishop gave Ath the lead on 13 minutes, though Marcio Pereira levelled on the half-hour for the Hall. Bishop struck again, this from the spot [35’] as Grays once again held a slender lead though Daniel Brown restored parity seven minutes later to grab a point though Town’s winless stretch extends to eight matches now. Grays are winless in their last four matches and are currently 16th in the table.

Heybridge Swifts 1 – 2   Dereham Town  

|   Venue: Scraley Road       |   Attendance: 188

Swifts return to league action wasn’t quite what they hoped for as they lost out to leaders Dereham at Scraley Road. Jamie Forshaw grabbed the initiative for the visitors after seven minutes though Luke Callander levelled on the quarter-hour mark. Toby Hilliard restored the Magpies’ lead 13 minutes before the break. Even the late sending off of Hilliard didn’t stop Dereham from recording their 12th league win of the campaign. Heybridge fell to only their second loss in their nine league matches thus far.

Potters Bar Town  4 – 1    Norwich Utd

| Venue: Pakex Stadium       |   Attendance: 92

Potters Bar recorded a good win over strugglers Norwich Utd here. Michael Murray’s goal put the Scholars ahead ten minutes before the break. That lead only lasted four minutes before Tim Henery struck to equalise for the Planters. Murray struck again four minutes before the break as Potters Bar looked to assert control. That they did after the break as Murray completed his hat-trick on the hour mark then Steve Brown added a fourth five minutes later. The hosts sit in 10th spot while Utd third loss in their last five matches sees them remain second bottom, just a point clear of Romford.

Romford  1 – 1  Aveley

| Venue: Ship Lane       |   Attendance: 125

Romford struck late on to prevent Aveley picking up a much-needed win at Ship Lane. It was the Millers who took the lead when Alex Teniola [61’] struck though Ayodeji Olukoga levelled with three minutes remaining to extend the hosts’ recent draw streak to three matches. Aveley averted a four-match losing run here though they rise one place to 21st.

Soham Town Rangers  1 – 3   Maldon & Tiptree

| Venue: Julius Martin Lane       |   Attendance: 110

Maldon struck late to secure another three points, this time at Julius Martin Lane. Maldon led after only four minutes through top-scorer Junior Ogedi-Uzokwe. Jon Kaye restored parity for the hosts four minutes before the break. Soham may have thought they were on for a point though late goals from substitute Chris Millar [83’] and Ogedi-Uzokwe’s second from the spot on the stroke of full-time secured the points and extends the Jammers’ unbeaten run to ten matches and they are in 7th place. Soham’s first defeat in four matches sees them in 15th spot.

Waltham Abbey   2 – 2  AFC Sudbury

| Venue: Capershotts       |   Attendance: 86

The Suds denied Abbey the win late on in this topsy-turvy contest at Capershotts. Reece Dobson put Sudbury ahead on the half-hour though Shad Ngandu levelled on 62 minutes. Aron Gordon turned the tide of the match by giving Abbey the lead just five minutes later. Dobson hit back for the visitors though with eight minutes left to secure a point. The Abbotts sit 11th & have only lost one of their last six matches now while Sudbury are unbeaten in three league matches, sitting in 14th spot.

Ware   0 – 2   Tilbury

| Venue: Wodson Park        |   Attendance: 54

Tilbury struck twice in the last twenty minutes to claim the points in a match that was reversed (Tilbury were due to be at home) due to floodlight failure at Chadfields. So, Wodson Park held this match instead and goals from Adam Vyse [72’] and substitute Charlie Little [89’] secured the visitors’ first win in their last four matches. Ware though are bottom of the form table now as their winless run extends to eight matches.

Witham Town  3 – 2     Cheshunt

| Venue: Spa Road       |   Attendance: 79

Witham continued their good recent run with a narrow win over struggling Cheshunt at Spa Road. Kyle Roberts put the Ambers ahead five minutes before the break though Jeffrey Gyamfi replied just three minutes later to see Town level at the interval. The hosts took the lead from the spot through Elliott Ronto six minutes after the break, before Lance Akins extended the lead with three minutes left. Jason Hallett struck on the cusp of 90 minutes to not help the home side’s nerves though Town held on to pick up their fourth win in their last five matches while Cheshunt have only had one success in their last seven matches.

Though the Suds were not to be denied as first Louis Blake restored parity with 15 minutes to go, and Adam Mills struck five minutes from the end.
