With Yeovil out of that pesky FA Trophy, it allowed us time to catch up with some league football! Following the entertaining 2-2 draw away to Dartford today, let’s take a look at what else happened with our fellow NLS combatants in both the league, and the FA Trophy.

We’ll start with the league action, where only 2 other games took place today, and they were absolute corkers! The main event took place in Worthing, where they played out a 4-4 thriller with St Albans City, ex-Glover Shaun Jeffers finding himself on the scoresheet. Meanwhile, a current Glover, Malachi Linton, made an appearance off the bench for Taunton, as they thrashed Farnborough 4-0 at home. Truro City and Dover Athletic was postponed before kick-off due to an unplayable surface.

Into the FA Trophy, and we’ll cover the pick of the round first, where Chippenham Town defeated Gloucester City in a 5-3 cracker at home. The National League North visitors put up a decent fight but the attacking threat of Matt McClure and Craig Fasanmade was too much for them. Another thumping for a fellow NLS competitor came in Frome, where Torquay United won 4-1 away from home to book their place in the next round.

There were one or two “cupsets” involving NLS sides, for the better and for the worse. Bath City and Hampton & Richmond both pulled off wins over National League opposition in the shapes of Boreham Wood and Southend United respectively, while on the other end of the spectrum, W*ymouth were knocked out by Hendon.
