Week 2 in the National League South didn’t disappoint, with thrills, skills, and a couple of spills across the division. Here’s what went down elsewhere following Yeovil’s 2-1 victory over St. Albans City!

Like Matchday 1, there were plenty of goals flying in, with the highest scoring fixture coming courtesy of Havant & Waterlooville hosting Chippenham Town, who played out a 4-2 thriller in favour of the visitors. Aveley secured their first victory at this level, by thumping Taunton Town 4-1, with Yeovil loanee Malachi Linton grabbing the solitary goal for the Peacocks.

Braintree Town snatched a last gasp victory over Truro City in an exciting 3-2 clash, goals coming in the 96th minute for Truro, and the 97th for Braintree.

It was a bad day at the office for fellow relegated sides from the National League, with both Torquay United and Maidstone United losing 3-0, Torquay hosting Worthing, and Maidstone travelling to  Bath City, while Dover Athletic continued their promising start to the campaign with a late 2-1 win away to Slough Town,

There were two 1-1 draws yesterday, played out by Chelmsford City and Hampton & Richmond, and Farnborough and Eastbourne Borough.

Weston-super-mare and Hemel Hempstead continued their winning starts to the campaign, with another 1-0 win each, over Tonbridge Angels and Welling United respectively, while W*ymouth got their first points on the board with a 1-0 win over Dartford.
