Vote for your star man in KentOnline's team-of-the-week

Vote for your star man in KentOnline's team-of-the-week.

Dan Bradshaw won last week's poll after his five-minute hat-trick in Sheppey United's FA Cup win, taking 29% of the vote.

Have a look at this week's XI and pick your favourite at the bottom of the page.

James Tonkin caught the eye with his performance between the sticks as Deal Town won 2-0 at a Glebe side who are fancied to go well in Southern Counties East, thoroughly deserving his clean sheet.

Corey Walters-Wright had an impressive debut as 10-man Sittingbourne saw out a 1-1 draw at Whitstable on the opening day of the Isthmian South East season.

Brickies had to dig in after losing goalscorer Roman Campbell to a first-half red card, with Walters-Wright very much to the fore in the visitors' backline.

What a difference Sonny Miles has made since returning from suspension for Tonbridge Angels.

Man-of-the-match in their midweek win over Concord, Miles was a rock once more as Steve McKimm's side held National South leaders Bath to a goalless draw.

Ebbsfleet's switch to a back three at Solihull Moors suited Jamie Grimes, with the former Dover and Macclesfield man having his best game for the club.

Grimes stood up well to a big Moors outfit and was unlucky to finish on the losing side as the National League pacesetters came from a goal down to win 2-1.

Ira Jackson's magnificent late free-kick earned Folkestone a 1-1 draw against Leatherhead and preserved their unbeaten start in the Isthmian Premier.

Dan Parkinson guarantees you a shift in midfield and on Saturday he also popped up with a goal as Sevenoaks opened with a 1-0 win at Three Bridges.

Ex-Lordswood man James Huggins scored the winner as Tunbridge Wells came from a goal down to beat Fisher 2-1 and make it two wins out of two.

And Kyron Lightfoot made a good start to the season with Herne Bay's opening goal in their 2-2 draw at Whyteleafe.

In attack, summer signing Kudus Oyenuga scored a hat-trick as Margate drew 3-3 at Kingstonian.

He twice gave Gate the lead before rescuing a point with a second-half penalty.

Jay May starred for Ashford in their 2-1 victory at Phoenix Sports.

The big man was excellent in the air, showed good hold-up play and scored the winner as Tommy Warillow's side started with a win.

Adam Coombes struck twice - his first home goals of the season - as Welling beat Oxford City 3-1 in National League South.

Our top boss is Tunbridge Wells manager Richard Styles.

It was a big decision for Styles to leave Lordswood but he's hit the ground running with a 100% start in the league plus FA Cup progress.
