On the way to the title Sevenoaks Town picked up a win at Beckenham Town on this day in 2018.
The 3-2 win at Eden Park Avenue moved the Oaks 10 points clear at the top of the table with nine games left to play.
Sevenoaks raced into a 2-0 lead inside the opening 23 minutes courtesy of midfielder Brett Ince’s strike and a headed own goal from Beckenham midfielder Stefan Wright.
But the third-placed hosts were given a lifeline when Billy Bennett headed in to his own goal and Wright scored at the correct end in the second half to give his side an equaliser.
However, Sevenoaks Town were not done yet and won the game with 12 minutes remaining through Kenny Pogue’s header.
