Four goals in 10 minutes either side of half-time sent Faversham Town on their way to a 5-2 derby win over Ramsgate in Ryman League Division 1 South.

The visitors had gone 2-0 up through Aaron Millbank and Macauley Murray but goals from Darren Marsden and Aiden Sherlock had the Lilywhites level by the break.

Luke Harvey scored twice in two minutes after the restart and Dave Botterill completed the rout. Faversham are sixth, just a point outside the play-offs, while the Rams sit eighth.

Sittingbourne strolled to a 4-0 win at Walton & Hersham, thanks largely to a Ryan Golding hat-trick. Joe Taylor scored the other goal as the Brickies climbed to 17th.

James Morrish returned to haunt his former club Whitstable Town, scoring in the 62nd minute as Hythe Town won 1-0 at the Belmont.

Storm damage at the Fullicks Stadium meant the Kent derby between Folkestone Invicta and Herne Bay was called off. However, Invicta remain in the top five.

In the Premier Division, a goal from Joe Vines earned Terry Brown his first home win as Margate manager, 1-0 against Enfield.

Bottom side Cray Wanderers plumbed new depths as they crashed 6-0 at home to title-chasing Dulwich Hamlet. Erhun Oztumer helped himself to a hat-trick and there were also goals for Nyren Clunis and Kershaney Samuels.

Maidstone United's game at Billericay was postponed but the Stones remain in touch with the leading group after a weekend which saw only one of the top-four win.

Ade Yussuff scored for Chatham Town but they lost 2-1 at home to Aveley in Division 1 North.

VCD Athletic are five points clear at the top after goals from Sherwin Stanley and Uche Ibemere fired them to a 2-0 win over Waltham Abbey.

But a waterlogged pitch meant Erith & Belvedere's game at Romford was called off.
