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

Tunbridge Wells midfielder Chris Lawal won last week’s poll, taking 47% of the vote following his goal in their 3-1 win at Hollands & Blair.

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

Chris Lewington conceded five in Maidstone’s loss at Weymouth but the margin of defeat would have been even greater but for his two penalty saves.

The fall-out from losing 5-1 is bad enough but 7-1 would have taken it to another level.

Rian Bray is one of two Tonbridge players included after helping the Angels to another clean sheet on the road.

It’s been a difficult week off the pitch with the club appealing for financial help to get them through the season but a 1-0 win at Dulwich moved them up four places to 16th in National League South and lifted everyone’s spirits.

Josh Hill was on his game in central defence as Dartford held league leaders Wealdstone to a goalless draw at Princes Park.

Jamie Grimes produced a solid performance and was unfortunate to finish on the losing side as Ebbsfleet conceded late in a 1-0 defeat against National League play-off contenders Stockport.

Chatham wing-back Jon Pilbeam scored twice in a 5-1 win over fifth-placed Tunbridge Wells in Southern Counties East.

Jude Arthurs’ excellent strike from the edge of the area set Ramsgate on their way to a 3-0 win over fellow Isthmian South East strugglers Faversham, moving them up a place to 18th.

Ashford lost 3-2 at home to Chichester, denting their title hopes, but recent signing George Purcell gave them a 2-1 lead and will clearly be an asset for the run-in.

Ryan Palmer scored four times in Chatham’s 8-1 midweek win at Erith & Belvedere and struck again in the 5-1 victory over Wells as Scott Lindsey's title hopefuls moved up to second.

Ryan Hayes equalised and laid on the winner in a dramatic last four minutes as Sevenoaks came from a goal down to beat VCD 2-1 in Isthmian South East.

Oaks’ Dartford connection paid off with Andy Pugh heading home Hayes’ 90th-minute cross to earn the points.

Our second Tonbridge player is match-winner Joe Turner after his 86th-minute strike earned a 1-0 victory at Dulwich.

A key man in their promotion season, he’s proving every bit as important in Angels’ safety push this term.

Not for the first time, our top boss is Tonbridge manager Steve McKimm.

To be getting the results they are amid financial uncertainty speaks volumes for the togetherness McKimm has created.
