Two-goal Clark helped Mersham to victory at reigning champions Kennington

Premier Division

Mersham Sports moved up to fourth place in the Premier Division standings as they picked up their third league victory of the season beating last seasons champions Kennington 6-4 at Sandyacres. Top goal scorer Rob Clark scored twice for the villagers as Mersham blew their hosts away playing some terrific football going forward to register more points this season than they had managed in the previous two seasons together. Further goals from Eddie Hall, Tom Wilson, Matt Stevens and Steve Tanner secured the win for the visitors to cancel out goals from Carlum Macleod, Karl Gladwin, Jason Simms and Dale Horton for Kennington who remain 12 points behind leaders Brewmaster in the league table.

 

Ashford Sunday Charity Trophy

Craig Haynes scored twice as Red Heathens overcame Division One visitors Aldington winning 3-1 to go through to the last-16 of the Charity Trophy. Haynes opened the scoring for the hosts midway through the first half when he slotted home from close range converting Richie Davies’ cross, before the same player doubled the Reds lead before the break with another cool finish from inside the box. Aldington were handed a great chance to get themselves back into the game early in the second period when home goalkeeper Jason Ovenden brought down Matt Moon, setting up Stephen Cowell to pull one back for the visitors from the penalty spot, but Davies restored Red Heathen’s two-goal advantage and sealed the win when he broke clear to score the hosts third of the morning.

A depleted Market Hotel side made light work of Premier Division rivals Lolzors running out comfortable 11-3 winners in their second-round clash at the Towers. Market played the whole 90 minutes with nine men with Bradley Baker top scoring with five goals for Ryan Smith’s under-strength team. Ryan Taylor weighed in with a hat-trick to score his first goals for the club since his mid-season transfer from AFC Guildhall, while a Reece Mortimer strike and two goals from young forward Kenny Steward against his former club completed the scoring to send holders Market through to the quarter finals of the competition. Lolzors failed to take advantage of their two extra players falling to their third defeat conceding double figures this season despite goals from Farid White, Jason Lucy and Matt Jarvis.

Joining Market Hotel in the last-eight are Horsebox Bars who needed extra-time to get past Division Two visitors Ashford Cavaliers before eventually winning 2-1 after two-hours of football at Swan Lane. The game ended all-square after the initial 90 minutes with Ashley Boyd netting for the Horsemen, but Reece Blyth’s strike for Cavaliers levelled up the game taking the tie to extra-time. Aaron Cook popped up with the winning goal for Horsebox to set up an away quarter final clash at Premier Division leaders Brewmaster.

 

Division One

James Gibson helped Sellindge SSC extend their excellent winning run scoring four times as the Swans returned from their trip to bottom of the table Appledore 8-1 winners. Gibson was constant threat for the visitors doubling his goal tally for the season in one game as Sellindge made it eight consecutive league wins this season to go five points clear at the top of the Division One table. Four other players got on the score sheet for Michael Heath’s in-form side as additional goals from Tony Dunham, Shaune Carey, Ross Godden and Darren Winfield added to the Swans total. Former Lydd Grasshoppers midfielder Dean Clark replied for Appledore who remain rooted to the foot of the standings still searching for their first win of the season.

 

Division Two

Hamstreet moved to the top of the Division Two league table for the first time this season after they enjoyed an 8-4 home win over Lolzors Reserves. Joe Spicer and Dane Rollings both scored twice for the home side as they won their third league game in succession to jump four places in the standings at the top of the a very tight division. Further strikes from Aaron White, Daniel Woodcock and Adam Mercer sealed victory for Mark Rutland’s highflyers who will look to protect their lead at home to Park Farm Rangers next weekend. Lolzors replied with their goals coming from Stephen Fuller, Kieran Hawkins, Michael Perry and Luke Ponsford but fell to their third consecutive away league defeat and remain in ninth place.

South Willesborough extended their unbeaten run to nine games with a 3-1 away victory at Biddenden to move up to sixth in the league standings. The Frog Islanders’ excellent recent cup form was replicated on their long-awaited return to league action as goals from Dion Fitzgerald, Dan Short and Anthony Hallett saw Brad Horne’s side return home from Tenterden with all three points. Barney Maybourne grabbed Biddenden’s consolation goal as their search for a league victory increased to five games, dropping down one place to seventh and just two points above the bottom two in the table.

Craig Mannering and Syrus Gordon both scored twice as Fox Sunday recorded their first league win of the season beating Park Farm Rangers 4-1 at Sandyacres. After riding heavy pressure from the visitors, it was Fox who took the lead against the run of play when player-manager Ben Rolfe played in Mannering to make it 1-0, but Dan Hall soon levelled for Rangers to even things back up again. Mannering scored his and Fox’s second goal of the morning just before half-time to restore the hosts lead. Syrus Gordon’s brilliant curling effort made it 3-1 before the same player added Fox’s fourth late on with an unstoppable strike to seal the home sides first league victory for nearly eight-months.

 

Division Three

Division Three leaders Folkestone United Reserves were denied the chance to pull further clear at the top of the table as they were held to a 2-2 draw at home to mid-table Pilgrims Sunday at the Gore. Goals from Ryan Jeffrey and Jordan Burton earned United an important point to see them move six points clear at the top of the pile, but Pilgrims took home a share of the points thanks to strikes by Phil Herz and Josh Mills to move themselves closer to the chasing pack as they look to get back in the promotion chase this season.
