Saturday football round-up

MARGATE suffered a heavy 5-2 home defeat against Staines Town in the Ryman League Premier Division on Saturday.

Gate's cause wasn't helped when on loan goalkeeper Billy McMahon had to be stretchered off with a knee injury, which meant defender Hasim Deen had to go in goal.

However, Chris Kinnear's side were already three down by then and struggling. One positive to come out of the match for the home team was a debut goal for Danny Hockton, who netted with a first half penalty.

In the same division, a Colin Luckett strike was enough to give Bromley all three points against Walton & Hersham at Hayes LAne, but it wasn't such good news for Folkestone Invicta who crashed to a 2-0 defeat at Billericay Town.

Ramsgate were forced to settle for a point at in-form Tooting & Mitcham United when the home side scored a last gasp penalty to earn a 1-1 draw.

Jim Ward's side had taken the lead after just eight minutes when Stuart Vahid netted his fifth of the season after Michael Yianni's corner wasn't dealt with by the Tooting keeper.

Dover Athletic also took a point from an uneventful goalless draw at home against leaders Horsham.

Tonbridge Angels were celebrating after Darren Smith's 37th minute goal gave them a 1-0 win against Banstead Athletic at Longmead.

But Ashford Town went down 3-2 at Whyteleafe, despite goals from Shaun Bradshaw and Solomon Henry, and Cray Wanderers returned home with nothing after a 1-0 defeat at Metropolitan Police.

In Southern League Division 1 East, three goals in five first half minutes from Ryan Hayes, Ian Pulman and Eddie McClements gave Dartford a comfortable win over Wivenhoe Town at Stonebridge Road.

But Chatham Town lost 1-0 at Berkhamsted Town.
