FC Elmstead scored a last minute equaliser to earn a draw at Lydd Town and extend their lead at the top to 6 points. The Lydders came so close to taking the game after Callum Edwards gave them an 89th minute lead but Elmstead have something about them this season and levelled in the dying seconds through Luke Markey to stay clear at the summit.
Holmesdale rose to second in the table after a 2-0 win at home to Rochester United. A stunning goal on debut from Nathan Palmer gave the hosts the lead with Ryan Golding doubling the scoreline late in the game. It finishes a good week for the club after they beat leaders FC Elmstead on Wednesday and are now just six points behind them with two games in hand.
Rusthall continued their charge up the table thanks to a 3-0 home win over Meridian VP. All three goals came in the first half with Luke Adams getting two of them and Charlie Clover grabbing the other. The Rustics are now in 4th place having played less than the three teams above them.
Lewisham Borough and Greenways shared the points at the Ladywell Arena with both sides scoring first half goals in a 1-1 draw. Ijah Currie-Wilson was first to hit the target in the 23rd minute with Brad Cross heading home soon after. Borough are now in 5th place with Greenways in 11th.
Sutton Athletic completed a good week with a 2-0 victory over SC Thamesmead at Lower Road. Conor Evans and Luke Coleman were on target as the hosts rose to 7th position in the table. Their charge towards the top four is well underway.
Snodland Town piled the misery on Kent Football United by winning 4-1 at Potyns Sports Field. The visitors took the lead early on through Aaron Guard but Ellis Hutton equalised just before the break. He went on to add a second before Harry Kingdon and George Mvlonda made it 4 as Snodland move up to 9th and Kent Football United drop to 17th.
The action came late at the Meridian Sports Club today as Forest Hill Park earned all three points in a 2-1 win. Sharaise Williams opener the scoring for the visitors in the 75th minute before Bridon Ropes levelled quickly after through James Murphy. With just a few minutes left Williams scored again and Forest took the win.
