Hythe Town dented Dulwich Hamlet’s Ryman League, Division 1 South title hopes with a 1-0 victory at Reachfields on Saturday.

Craig Cloke scored the only goal eight minutes from time to give Hythe’s own play-off chances a big boost.

And the result also meant that leaders Maidstone United, whose match at Chipstead was one of 13 postponed Ryman League matches, retained their six-point lead over second-placed Dulwich.

Former Manchester United manager Tommy Docherty was among the crowd at Southwood where Ramsgate coasted to a 4-0 victory over lowly Horsham to move within touching distance of the play-off spots. The Ramsgate goals came from Jon Equilor (2), Ian Pulman and James Sherman.

Whitstable drew 1-1 at home with fellow strugglers Walton Casuals. The visitors took the lead in the second half through James McShane but Whitstable equalised almost immediately when Micheal Everitt headed home James Beecroft’s free-kick.

In the Ryman Premier Division, Carl Rook scored twice for Margate as they eased to a 3-0 win at Enfield Town. The striker would have scored a hat-trick but saw his second-half penalty saved by home keeper Noel Imber. Kezie Ibe scored the other ‘Gate goal.

Thamesmead Town kept their play-off bid on track in Ryman 1 North with a 1-0 success over AFC Sudbury thanks to a 28th-minute strike from Lea Dawson.

The first meeting between Wroxham and Chatham Town ended in a 1-1 stalemate. The Norfolk side scored after just four minutes through a Ben Thompson penalty but the Chats equalised on the stroke of half-time through Austin Gacheru.
