Non-league football midweek round-up

31 October 2012

Jay Saunders

Maidstone went top of Ryman League Division 1 South on Tuesday night with a 3-0 home win over Chipstead.

A bumper crowd of 1,632 at the Gallagher Stadium saw Alex Flisher put Jay Saunders' (pictured) side ahead inside six minutes.

Ian Draycott then made light work of the absence of leading scorer Paul Booth by scoring just before half-time and again 17 minutes from the end to wrap up the points.

Hythe moved up to third with an impressive 2-0 win at Dulwich courtesy of second-half goals from Craig Thompson (67) and Nick Barnes (85).

Faversham and Herne Bay complete a top five which includes four Kent sides.

Sittingbourne took an early lead through Nick Davis against Walton Casuals but Robinson equalised before half-time to claim a draw.

Folkestone also picked up a point after drawing 1-1 at Folkestone. Ryan Philpott scored for the visitors on 27 minutes but Gary Frewett levelled for Walton after the break.

Ramsgate won 2-0 at Horsham courtesy of goals in either half from James Sherman and skipper Dean Hill.

Meanwhile, in the FA Trophy Cray Wanderers won 3-2 at Arlesey after extra-time to set up a third qualifying round derby at home to Welling.

Laurent Hamici hit the winning goal in the final minute of extra-time.

Bromley survived a scare in Blue Square Bet South, leading 3-0 at one stage they held on to beat Maidenhead 3-2 at Hayes Lane.

Danny Waldren put Bromley ahead and his deflected free-kick made it 2-0 before half-time. Richard Pacquette made it 3-0 early in the second half before the visitors missed a penalty.

However, goals from Paul Semakula and Chris Flood set up a tense finale but Bromley managed to hold on.

The lights went out on Dover at Crabble when floodlight failure early in the first half saw their match with Billericay abandoned. Whites led 1-0 at the time through Ben May.
