New signing Rory McAuley scored the only goal of the game as Dartford won 1-0 away to Thurrock on Saturday. Here is Steve Tervet's match report from Ship Lane.

Dover Athletic claimed a 4-1 win at Canvey Island, with new signing Stefan Payne winning and then scoring a penalty inside the first minute. Canvey's John Sands scored an own goal and Liam Bellamy - having just signed a new deal at Crabble - netted twice.

Goals from Kieron St Aimie and Moses Ashikodi handed Welling United an impressive 2-0 win over Charlton Athletic at Park View Road, while Bromley won at Dulwich Hamlet by the same scoreline. Sam Long and Danny Waldren got the goals for Mark Goldberg's side.

Ebbsfleet United were due to visit VCD Athletic but the game was called off because of a waterlogged pitch.

Terry Brown's Margate beat his old club AFC Wimbledon 3-0 at Hartsdown Park. The Gate goals were scored by Sam Rents, Brett Johnson and Luke Moore.

Cray Wanderers won 3-1 away to Peacehaven & Telscombe but Thamesmead Town were beaten 5-0 at home by Maidenhead United.

Local rivals Hythe Town and Ashford United played out a 1-1 draw at Reachfields. Ex-Ashford striker Sam Conlon put Hythe ahead in manager Tim Dixon's first game in charge but the Nuts & Bolts restored parity after half-time.

Faversham Town played out a 0-0 draw against a Millwall XI and Ramsgate were beaten 3-0 by Phoenix Sports.

Joe Lester netted for Sittingbourne in their 3-1 home defeat to Leatherhead, while Whitstable Town went down 1-0 at home to Conference South side Whitehawk.
