Well, that wasn’t the most entertaining of afternoons, however it was still a good point, as Yeovil drew 0-0 with high flying Hampton & Richmond Borough. Thankfully, there were goals aplenty across the league, keeping me in a job for another week! Let’s take a look at who’s done what, and how it impacts the league table.

We begin in West Sussex, where a top-end clash went down, with tons of goals to boot. Worthing hammered 10 man Maidstone, an Ollie Pearce hattrick handing the hosts a 5-1 win. Last week’s hosts Dartford were on their travels, and probably wished they weren’t, as they fell to a 4-0 drubbing at the hands of Tonbridge Angels. Another contender for game of the week came at Plainmoor, where Torquay United recovered from a two goal deficit to win 3-2 at home to Hemel Hempstead, a Dean Moxey winner coming in the 89th minute.

Another 3-2 thriller was played out on the North Somerset coast, where Truro City travelled back home with all 3 points over Weston-super-mare, former Glover Ryan Law getting himself on the scoresheet for the visitors. Havant & Waterlooville continued their revival as they dismantled Taunton to win 3-0, lifting themselves off the bottom of the table for the first time since matchday 8; meanwhile, Slough Town and Farnborough dropped a “Desmond”, the draw doing neither side any favours.

St Albans prevented Chelmsford City from winning 3 away on the bounce with a 2-1 win to continue their inconsistent season, Shaun Jeffers finding himself on the scoresheet with a penalty, while next week’s hosts Eastbourne Borough secured a huge 2-0 win away at Welling United to move level on points with Slough at the cusp of the relegation zone, albeit with 4 more games played. Chippenham Town and W*ymouth played out a 1-1 draw to leave the noisy neighbours hovering above the drop zone.

In the final two games of the day, Braintree Town moved themselves back into the playoff spots with a 1-0 win over Aveley, who now find themselves winless in the league in their last 7 games. Finally, under their new management of Jake Leberl and Mike Sandmann, Dover Athletic held playoff contenders Bath City to a 0-0 result.
