Holmesdale jumped back up to second place in the table following a 2-0 home victory against Greenways. Both goals came within a few minutes of each other in the second half with Ryan Golding netting after Jamie Rawsthorne had got the opener. The hosts are now unbeaten in five league games and just 3 points behind the leaders with a game in hand.
Rochester United edged out Lydd Town 2-1 to return to the top three in the Division. All three goals came in the final 15 minutes with Callum Peck and Reece Gillies scoring for the Spartans and Ryan Smith hitting home from the spot for Lydd to set up a tense end to the game.
Sutton Athletic continued their rise up the ranks when coming from behind to beat Forest Hill Park at Lower Road. The visitors hit the net first through Mans Murmark with Conor Evans levelling just before the break. In the final stages of the game Macey Malyon claimed his first goal for Sutton before Evans grabbed his second to wrap it up just before the final whistle was blown.
Croydon rescued a point with a late leveller at home to Meridian VP. Adrian Spence got the first of the game in the 5th minute to give the visitors the lead with Levi Shango equalising soon after. Meridian probably thought they had won it when Tomi Alade scored with time running out but Leo Medrado popped up at the death to ensure the points were shared.

Bridon Ropes outclassed Kent Football United to make it into Round Three of the SCEFL Challenge Cup. Strike partners Liam Donaldson and Nathan Simpson both scored hat-tricks with Patrick Giovagnolli getting number seven as Ropes racked up their best win of the season.
