Three SCEFL sides are confirmed to be in the next round of the FA Cup and another will be in Monday’s draw after a dramatic day of Preliminary round action.

Rusthall continued their fine start to the campaign by getting past Ramsgate, despite being behind at the break.

Louis Anderson and James White each scored second half goals for the Rustics in a 2-1 win over the Isthmian South East Division side.

Erith Town were also 2-1 victors, and they too found themselves behind early in the game.

Charlie Clover levelled for the Dockers before Harry Taylor got the winner in the 50th minute.

Phoenix Sports won the only all-SCEFL game with Dave Martin netting late on in their 1-0 victory at Tunbridge Wells.

Fisher are also in Monday’s draw but will need a replay win to confirm their place in the next round after Sittingbourne scored twice late on at St Pauls.

Manny Shoderu and Darnelle Bailey-King put Fisher 2-0 up but their visitors rescued another shot at the next phase with two goals of their own in the final stages.

There were lots of unlucky losers in this round too.

K Sports and Deal Town couldn’t quite complete impressive comebacks and each went down 3-2 on the road, Sutton Athletic and Punjab United both conceded late on in home losses, while Foxbury pair Glebe and Stansfeld each fell to Isthmian South East opponents.
