Between the sticks this week, we've gone for an outfield player who nearly kept a clean sheet.

Full credit to Laurent Mendy, of VCD Athletic, who went in goal after Nick Blue's early red card against Guernsey. He kept them out until the last 11 minutes at Oakwood - only a late missed penalty prevented his team from grabbing a draw.

After a week of late goals against, Folkestone Invicta returned to winning ways with a 3-1 success at home to Corinthian Casuals. Reliable defender Josh Vincent put his team 2-1 ahead on the hour mark to earn his place in our line-up.

Alongside him in defence is Margate's Ben Swift, who set Jay Saunders' men on the way to a 4-2 home success over Haringey in Isthmian Premier by scoring the first goal.

Andy Hessenthaler's Dover Athletic sit just three points outside the play-off places in the National League following their 2-0 win over Aldershot. On-loan Leyton Orient defender Shadrach Ogie capped an impressive home debut with a stunning goal - having started his run from inside his own half.

Andre Boucaud showed all his class and experience to help Maidstone edge out Oxford City in National League South.

It was a debut to remember for Anthony Edgar at Herne Bay. Signed from Cray Valley in midweek, Edgar capped his home bow with the first goal in a 2-0 win over Chichester City at Winch's Field.

Another classy player is alongside him in Jacob Berkeley-Agyepong, who signed off from a one-month loan spell with Dartford in style. Berkeley-Agyepong stood out in midfield with his vision and neat passing in Dartford's 1-0 home win over Dulwich.

Former Dartford and Dover forward Tom Murphy was another goalscoring debutant, slotting in the first for his new club, Hythe Town, as they won 3-0 at Haywards Heath in Isthmian South East.

There were plenty of goalscoring candidates from the garden of England over the weekend - and we've gone for three players who all netted twice for their clubs.

Gillingham forward Jordan Roberts scored twice in their 2-2 draw at Rochdale, showing the predatory instincts that convinced boss Steve Evans to bring him in on loan from Ipswich.

Former Gills youngster Aaron Millbank bagged a brace for Whitstable Town, who continued their recent upturn in form with a 3-1 win at lowly Three Bridges.

The final place in our line-up goes to Ramsgate's Tyrell Mitford, who also scored twice as his team won the battle of the bottom two in Isthmian South East. It was only a third win of the season for Ramsgate, who scored twice in the last eight minutes to deny East Grinstead their first league victory and claim a 3-2 success on the road.

Our top boss this week is Herne Bay's Ben Smith after that win over Chichester left his side outside the play-off places only on goal difference. It was a fourth win in five league games for Bay, who have lost only once in the league since early November.
