We may have had two 0-0s but today’s seven other Premier Division fixtures still gave us an incredible 35 goals as the second half of the season got underway in great style.

2023 could be a huge one for Erith & Belvedere and they kicked it off perfectly, winning 4- 0 at Hollands & Blair.

The Deres raced out of the traps, going 2-up inside 5 minutes with George Monger and Nathan Palmer scoring the early goals.

Tunde Aderonmu continued his own fine from by adding a third and Tyrell Richardson-Brown made it 4-0, sealing the win that keeps his side 21 points clear of the chasing pack.

Rusthall lead that pack and cemented that position with an entertaining 5-3 victory at Bearsted.

Louie Clarke was the star of the show netting a hat-trick inside an hour, Dan blunn and Reuel Powell-Downey added the others, condemning Bearsted to a place in the relegation zone.

Erith Town are back up to third place in the table following their 4-2 home win over Stansfeld.

Billy Shinners had given the visitors an early lead before Steadman Callender levelled from the spot.

Jamie Humphris put the Dockers ahead and Harry Taylor extended that lead in the 50th minute.

Ross Morley set up an exciting finish when he pulled one back for Stansfeld but Ladic Melconian settled the destination of the points late on.

It was the M and M show at Foxbury where Glebe saw off Sutton Athletic 2-0.

Marcel McDonald and Malaki Morris got the goals that keep up the Foxes slim hopes of second spot, in a promotion race that would feel so empty without Glebe.

Holmesdale put on a masterclass of a first half to send Fisher back to Bermondsey empty handed.

The Dale were 4-0 up at the break with Fred Obasa netting twice, Joe Nwoko adding another and Cian McCarthy getting the fourth from distance.

There was no further scoring in the second half but with the win sees Holmesdale move up to 11th place.

Welling Town also scored four, and needed to as Deal Town played their part in a 7-goal thriller at the Bauvill.

Joao Carlos and Kweku Ansah each claimed a brace for the Boots, who with the win moved out of the drop zone.

Kennington were the top scorers of the day after they came from behind to beat K Sports 5-1 at Homelands.

Josh Biddlecombe gave the Paperboys the lead but Tom Scorer and Liam Middleton each notched a double and Mitch Harman completed the rout late on.

Canterbury City v Lordswood and Punjab United against Whitstable Town both finished goalless.

It was a first point in 6 games for Canterbury, who were led out for the first time by new boss Dan Lawrence.

 

Tunbridge Wells v Phoenix Sports failed a morning pitch inspection.
