The torrential rain left us 2 games shorter than expected today but 7 still went ahead and they were as entertaining as ever.

We are yet to see a drawn game in this Division while the only team to have played twice and won them both is Croydon. So it is The Trams that sit on top of the table at this early stage.

Today Croydon were 4-1 victors at home to Greenways with Gavin Quintyne, Richard White, Tim Beckford and JP Rylah all scoring for the hosts and Josh White netting the consolation effort.

Tooting Bec got life in the SCEFL off to a winning start but needed a late goal from Ed Mbango to earn the 3 points. Mbango had earlier got the opener which was then added to soon after by Eli Lewis. The second half saw Snodland Town stage a comeback, as Lee Friend and Brad Webb both scored but the Tooting Bec forward Mbango had the last word with his late winner.

Meridian VP were 4-1 winners, with Darrell Thompson scoring a hat-trick against Staplehurst Monarchs. Ben Eades got the other for VP while Pete West scored for their visitors.

Larkfield & New Hythe are up and running after picking up a 3-0 home victory over Forest Hill Park. Brett Ince scored a double for The Larks and Harry Taylor scored too in front of over 100 onlookers at the Taray Group Stadium.

Lewisham Borough came from behind to beat FC Elmstead 2-1 in the week that  they parted ways with their manager. After a goalless first half Henry Bangerter gave Elmstead the lead but their visitors soon levelled, then took the lead and held on to take home the points.

Faversham Strike Force may find their rent goes up this week as they edged out Landlords Rochester United by a single goal at Rede Court Road. Ali Wren scored it to put Strike Force level with Rochester on 3 points, after their 2 games played.

Kent Football United are also on 3 points but after just 1 game as their debut this season went well against SC Thamesmead. Jerome Walker and Jordan Anderson got the goals in a 2-1 victory for KFU while Mayowa Olufeko netted for a Thamesmead side yet to earn a point this campaign.

Westside FC v Bridon Ropes and Chessington & Hook v Lydd Town have been postponed due to waterlogged pitches.
