Matchday 3 has finished up, with Yeovil’s 2-1 win over Truro City contributing to more late game drama across the first set of midweek fixtures. Let’s take a look at what else happened across the league.

On Monday night, Aveley laid down a statement of intent to the league by defeating Eastbourne Borough 2-0.

Weston-super-Mare had their shooting boots on last night, stuffing Bath City 6-2 away from home, an impressive performance from the newly promoted side leaving as one of only two teams left with 100% win records across the 2nd step of non-league football. The other side with this 100% win record is Worthing, who battered 10-man Slough 4-1, also away from home.

All 3 former National League sides registered 2-1 victories last night, with Torquay getting their first win of the season against Chippenham Town courtesy of a 93rd minute winner from Aaron Jarvis, and Maidstone United defeating Braintree Town away from home.

2 other matches finished 2-1, with Farnborough handing Hemel Hempstead their first defeat of the season, and in a dramatic finish at Welling, Chelmsford City snuck away with 3 points, following a 99th minute winner, and both sides finding themselves down to 10 men.

Dartford couldn’t get the better of Hampton & Richmond, going down to 10 men as they ended up finishing with a 1-1 draw, as did the match at W*ymouth, where they took on Taunton. And finally, Tonbridge Angels registered their first win of the season against Dover Athletic with a 1-0 win at home.

There was a final fixture of the midweek round, where St Albans bounced back from their weekend defeat to the Glovers by condemning Havant & Waterlooville to their 3rd straight defeat, winning 2-1.
