New look stadium, new look team and a perfect start to the SCEFL season – all is looking rosy in the Medway garden of Chatham Town.

Yet for 45 minutes, Deal Town more than matched the home side and but for a very smart piece of defending from Leon Smith early on could even have taken the lead. 

Out of nowhere, Matt Bodkin drove the Chats into the lead in stoppage time and seconds later Jack Evans stroked home the second from the spot. Further goals in the second half from Harry Harding and a second from Evans in the final minute sent the Chats top.  Connor Coyne pulled one back for Deal at three-nil but after their first half efforts the score-line was tough on the visitors.
