In the Ryman Premier Division Margate and Maidstone still lead the way after they both registered wins to maintain their perfect starts to the season.

Maidstone edged Bury Town 1-0, while Margate thrashed Billericay 5-1 to go top on goal difference.

Elsewhere in the division VCD Athletic drew 1-1 with Met Police thanks to a goal from James Duckworth, while Tonbridge Angels slipped to a 2-0 defeat at Wingate & Finchley.

In Division 1 North Chatham slipped to a 2-1 defeat at Aveley, despite leading 1-0 at half-time through Ade Yusuff.

Second-half goals from Aveley's Petrit Elbi (56) and Marcus Elliot, 10 minutes from time, sealed Chatham's fate.

Sean Roberts earned Thamesmead a point at Brentwood Town.

His goal on 65 minutes cancelled out Courtney White's second-minute opener for the hosts.

A first-half hat-trick for Wroxham's Jamie Forshaw was enough to see off Cray Wanderers, although they managed to pull two back through Ian Daly and Pat O'Connor.

Whitstable remain the only unbeaten Kent side in Division 1 South after a dramatic finish at Redhill.

Ryan Golding had cancelled out Joe Bingham's opener in the first 15 minutes, before Tom Lyons gave Town the lead after 84 minutes. Ian Pulman made it 3-1 two minutes later, before Redhill set up a tense final few minutes through Tre Mitford's strike.

Whitstable hung on for the points, moving them up to fifth.

Sittingbourne fell to their first loss of the season when they were humbled 1-0 at home by Whyteleafe, while Folkestone also tasted defeat for first time, losing 2-0 at Ramsgate.

Late second-half goals from Tom Chapman and Ira Jackson sealed the derby win for Rams.

Wayne Wilson's penalty couldn't prevent Faversham from losing 3-1 at leaders Chipstead and Herne Bay also lost at home to Walton & Hersham.

Meanwhile, a late Jack Sullivan goal earned Hythe Town a point at home to Corinthian-Casuals and move them out of the drop zone.
