Sea Pioneer SCEFL Premier Division
Erith & Belvedere took a Pancake Day battering at the hands of Chatham Town tonight as the visitors earned all 3 points in stunning style. Jack Evans claimed a hat-trick yet Ryan Palmer went one better to grab four as the Chats went goal crazy at Park View Road. The 8-1 defeat follows 7-2 and 7-0 losses for the Deres and they will now feel the breaths of Crowborough Athletic all over their backs.

Deres 1 Chatham 8. Yes it's our record home defeat (topping 0-7 v Sutton Utd, 1944) but (i) it followed a harsh red card after 16 minutes, (ii) we were up against title contenders in prime form, and (iii) we're backing our manager in circs as bleak as a new boss has ever faced.

Great response from Saturday’s draw. Someone was due to hold smoke and that’s what happened. Great 8-1 win in the league. Bagged 4 goals and takes the tally to 9. Shout out Jack Evans on the assist and his Hatty.

I think the young boys were shown how brutal the league can be tonight. 8-1 for @ChathamTownFC BUT credit to the lads @EBTheDeres even with 10 men they continued to work hard. First few days at the club has been an eye opener and we can’t wait for the challenge ahead.
