Andy Walker's excellent second-half saved preserved a clean sheet and proved all-important as his Cray Valley team pinched a 1-0 win over Sevenoaks on Monday.

Ryan Johnson had two top-class games for Maidstone over the long weekend, rock-solid in the 1-0 win at Concord and again in a 4-1 victory over Chelmsford, including a brilliantly-timed challenge to stop Robbie Simpson as he raced in on goal.

Jamie Grimes retains his place after two more impressive displays in the heart of Ebbsfleet's defence.

He helped Garry Hill's side pick up their first point in a 2-2 draw with Notts County and looked the part once more as Fleet battled to a 2-1 win at Boreham Wood.

John Walker completes our backline, scoring and keeping a clean sheet as Whitstable beat big rivals Herne Bay 3-0.

Ira Jackson, like Grimes keeps his place.

It's impossible to ignore his early-season form, which continued with three goals in two games over the weekend.

He scored twice as a second-half substitute in a 4-1 win at Potters Bar on Saturday, and was on target again as Folkestone went top of the Isthmian Premier with a 3-1 victory over Merstham.

Chris Lawal was on target from midfield as Tunbridge Wells came from a goal down to beat Crowborough 3-1 and make it four wins out of four at the top of Southern Counties East.

Luke Allen opened the scoring in a man-of-the-match performance as Dartford beat in-form Braintree 2-1 to record their first win of the season on Saturday.

It was a much-needed result for the Darts and they were only denied back-to-back victories by a late equaliser at Hungerford on Monday.

Kadell Daniel clinched Margate's first win of the season after a three draws and a defeat, with the Blues beating Lewes 2-0 on Saturday.

A goal up with five minutes left, Kadell settled any nerves by sprinting clear of his man and finishing smartly.

It was a good weekend for Welling striker Bradley Goldberg who put the Wings ahead in Saturday's 1-1 draw at Chelmsford and followed up with the first two goals in a 4-2 success over Kent rivals Tonbridge.

David Smith scored four in one match as Ashford United beat Three Bridges 5-0, the young striker unplayable as the Nuts and Bolts chalked up a big victory.

Sittingbourne's on-loan Gillingham forward Roman Campbell completes our line-up after his match-winning double in a 2-1 victory at Ramsgate.

That made it four goals in three games for the teenager who seems destined for a big future.

Sittingbourne manager Chris Lynch is our top boss - the first time he's taken the award - after the Brickies' weekend double.

They beat Uxbridge 2-0 in the FA Cup on Saturday before their deserved victory at Southwood.
