Norris and Pryor on target as South Willesborough progress in Sheber Trophy

Premier Division

Dan Cornell netted an injury time equaliser to seal his hat-trick and earn Stanhope & Beaver Rangers a hard-earned point in their 3-3 home draw against Market Hotel at Pitchside. Cornell’s treble against his former club saw Rangers come back from 3-1 down to claim a share of the points and deny Ryan Smith’s new-look Market side their first league victory of the campaign. Market went 2-0 ahead with goals from Alex Coyne and Craig Calvert, who re-joined the club from Mersham last month. Cornell pulled one back for Stanhope before Reece Mortimer restored Market’s two-goal advantage, but a second-half Cornell penalty set up a grandstand finish as the same player scored again to level things up in the 92nd minute grabbing his 11th goal of the season.

Bromley Green left it late to record their fifth league victory of the campaign as they came back from behind to beat brave Red Heathens 6-4. The Green trailed 4-1 at one point to last season’s Division One champions as two Radislav Davidov goals and one apiece from Craig Haynes and Stuart Wilson saw the Heathens take command. But Green top goal scorer Luke Burdon started the comeback scoring a hat-trick for the hosts adding to an own goal and two from Kieran Shrimpton to ensure Gary Gibbs’ side claimed victory to move three points clear at the top of the Premier Division league standings.

Two goals from Craig Maxwell helped Nailbox return home from their trip up the A20 to Mersham Sports 3-2 winners. Maxwell gave Nailbox a first-half lead when he followed up to score after team-mate Adam Ghidaoui’s initial effort was well saved, but Mersham player-manager Rob Clark soon levelled as the two rivals went in at the half time break all square. Maxwell scored his second goal of the morning to restore the ‘Box’s lead only for Mersham to equalise for a second time as Ed Hall netted his second goal of the season to make it 2-2, before Jordan Small went on to grab the all important winner 20 minutes from time for Nailbox.


Division One

Division One leaders Sellindge SSC came out on top in the highly anticipated Swan Lane derby as they beat local rivals Horsebox Bars 4-3 to stay two points clear at the top of the league table. Liam Middleton scored twice to help Sellindge maintain their 100% winning start to the season and make it six wins from six league fixtures so far. Further goals from Kieran Byrne and last season’s top scorer Tony Dunham made sure of the victory and cancel out two goals from Ashley Boyd and one from Aaron Cook for the Horsemen, who suffered a second successive away league defeat against their neighbours.

Aldington kept up the pressure on the leaders as they saw off Folkestone United winning 3-1 at home despite getting off to a terrible start at the Reynolds Ground. Folkestone were awarded a penalty in the first minute when Ben Hunt was adjudged to have fouled in the box, setting up Josh Baker to convert from 12-yards and put United ahead. But Hunt made up for his error fifteen minutes later when he netted the equaliser smashing home an unstoppable volley from 25-yards, before Aldington were awarded a spot kick of their own after Alex Williams was bundled over in the area teeing up midfielder Stephen Cowell to make it 2-1 from the penalty spot. Matt Moon added a third for the hosts before half-time after Chris Cryer flicked the ball on from Williams’ cross to score and seal a first home victory in four games.

Emin Yalcin claimed the match ball as Ashford Genclik moved up to third place in the table with a 6-4 home win against Charing. Yalcin’s treble helped in-form Genclik to their fourth successive league victory while two goals from Max Sarigul and one from Taner Yalcin made sure of the points for Yasin Guven’s side. Charing replied with two goals from top scorer James Fraser and one each from Ben Harte and Ben Larden but came up short as they were unable to follow up on their first win of the season two-weeks ago against Hythe RBL.

Cheriton AFC remain in fourth position despite their excellent 7-3 home win against Lydd Grasshoppers. Chris Jones’ side proved too strong for the ‘Hoppers in what was their first league outing for over a month due to various cup commitments, with top scorer Jack Taylor claiming a hat-trick to take his goal tally for the season to 14 in all competitions. Teddy Easthope added two more for the hosts with George Ayling and Ryan Hall completing the scoring to cancel out Paul Paddock’s brace and another from skipper Robbie Tyas for Grasshoppers.

Goals from Craig Pierce and Alaric Sam earned bottom of the table Appledore their first point of the season as they drew 2-2 on the road at Hythe Royal British Legion. Pierce scored his third goal of the season to equal his tally for the whole of last season as the Smugglers finally got on the board this season, and were denied taking all three points as Jason Brazier netted a brace for Hythe to see them move up one place to seventh

Division Two

Troggs missed out on the chance to go top of the Division Two league table as they returned from their trip to Lolzors Reserves empty handed losing 5-3 at the Ridge. Lolzors’ striker Stephen Fuller was on top form netting twice for the Pumas, but winger Mac Ellender scored the goal of the game for the hosts with a sensational volley to extend their lead. Further goals from Brad Parker and Ashley Slingsby ensured Lolzors picked up just their second league victory of the season which was made sure when home goalkeeper Ollie Britton saved a second-half penalty from Troggs midfielder Sam Lopez. Young Lopez did get his name on the score sheet however for the visitors, as did Rob Giles and in-form striker Ben Allen, but the Smarden side came up short suffering a second defeat of the season but remain second in the standings.

Joe Spicer was once again amongst the goals as Hamstreet moved up to fifth in the standings with a 6-1 away victory at Ashford Spartans. Spicer netted a hat-trick for Mark Rutland’s side to move onto nine goals for the season while two goals from Aaron White and one from former Kennington forward Jake Prescott sealed the victory. Daryl Whiffen grabbed a consolation goal for Spartans but couldn’t prevent his side from a second defeat against the ‘Street this season following their 3-1 reverse in the Sheber Trophy back in September.

Burton Grove picked up only their second league victory of the season as Andy Crouch’s second-half hat-trick helped Justin Day’s side to a 3-2 home victory against Park Farm Rangers. Burton went behind in the first half when Pat Skivington scored an own goal on his 200th appearance for the club to give Park Farm a 1-0 half-time lead. But cue Andy Crouch who first levelled when he connected with Dean Spurrell’s corner, before the former Iden Park and Mersham Sports striker gave Burton the lead shortly after. Crouch completed his treble with a stunning free kick from the edge of the penalty area to make it 3-1 to the hosts only for Ollie Burberry to pull a late goal back to set up for a tense finish which Burton held on for the win.


Sheber Challenge Trophy- First Round

South Willesborough held on to go through to the second round of the Sheber Trophy as they won their rearranged first round clash 2-1 against Ashford Cavaliers at the Ridge. Goals from Mike Norris and Rhys Pryor gave Willesborough a 2-0 lead which they protected right up until the final few minutes before Paul Mabb surged upfield playing a one-two with midfielder Aaren Carlton to score and bring ten-man Cavaliers right back into the game. Cavaliers threw everything at the Frogs in the final couple of minutes sending up goalkeeper James Leighton for two late corners, but Brad Horne’s in-form side held on for the win and now face Burton Grove in the second round.


Sheber Challenge Trophy- Second Round

Teenage striker George Large scored three times to help last season’s runners-up Biddenden into the quarter finals of the Sheber Trophy with a 4-2 win against Pilgrims Sunday. Large’s hat-trick included one from the penalty spot as Biddenden set up a last-eight clash at home to either Troggs or Fox Sunday, with their fourth goal coming courtesy of an own goal. Ten-man Pilgrims had defender Joe Munden red carded but did have Yonas Tesfay and top scorer Nathan Cook on target in a disappointing defeat for Karl Lowry’s side.


Division Three

Folkestone United Reserves created a three-point gap between themselves and the chasing pack at the top of the Division Three table as they beat Aldington Reserves 5-2 at home. Jevon Hraboweckyj and Ashley Sales both scored twice for United as they recorded their fourth successive league victory. Alan Reed added a fifth for the hosts to end any hopes of Aldington claiming a share of the points despite them scoring through Kevin Ruane and Cameron Bruce.

Ashford United Thirds ended Mersham Sports Reserves unbeaten start to the season as Roger Hadlum’s side run out 4-2 winners at the Homelands Stadium. Kyle Galea gave United an early lead when he headed home from Joey Wealthyland’s pinpoint delivery from the right, but Mersham levelled soon after when Adam Bellman scored the first of his first two goals of the morning. United went in at half-time 3-1 ahead thanks to further goals from Craig Hagley and Wealthyland, before Rhys Hodges scored a fourth for the hosts from the penalty spot just after the break to see them pull clear. Bellman scored Mersham’s second on the hour mark but United held on for the victory and move back up into the top four in the standings.

Sam Ades and Charlie Wallis both scored twice as Bromley Green Reserves came back from 4-1 down to earn a point in a thrilling 5-5 draw away at Smeeth & Brabourne. Bradley Osbourne added a fifth for the visitors before being sent to the sin bin in the second half for dissent to help the Green claim a point against their young village hosts. James Evans scored twice for Smeeth adding to individual strikes from Tom Keaveney, Ollie Rice and Will Stuttle.
