Folkestone Invicta moved into the Ryman League Division 1 South play-off places with a 3-1 home win over Redhill on Saturday.

Josh Vincent, Michael Yianni and Johan Ter Horst scored the goals which extended Invicta's unbeaten run at the Fullicks Stadium to 13 matches and lifted them to fifth.

Three points and three places behind Neil Cugley's side are Ramsgate, who lost 2-0 at home to Chipstead.

Faversham Town moved level on points with the Rams after they played out a 0-0 draw with Worthing at Salters Lane.

There was frustration for struggling Whitstable Town, who were leading 2-1 when their game at promotion-chasing Walton Casuals was abandoned due to torrential rain and a power failure.

And waterlogged pitches meant the fixtures involving Herne Bay, Hythe Town and Sittingbourne were all postponed.

Maidstone United thrashed Hampton & Richmond Borough 7-2 at the Gallagher Stadium to move second in the Premier Division.

Margate were due to travel to Leiston but the game was postponed.

In Division 1 North, Chatham Town were beaten 2-0 at home by Romford, while Erith & Belvedere were beaten by the same scoreline at Soham Town Rangers.
