Lingfield 0-2 Crowborough Ath
Rochester Utd 1-2 Fisher
Tunbridge Wells 7-0 Lordswood

Here is show the SCEFL website recorded today’s events…

Ashford United and Erith Town shared a goal-less first half. It looked as though the second half would prove equally quiet until, in the 84th minute, Ben Mendele put the Dockers in front. Looking for all the world to be losers on the night the Nuts & Bolts salvaged a point when Pat Kingwell scored in time added at the end. So, Ashford claw a point back on leaders Phoenix but they play tomorrow as do Erith & Belvedere. The Dockers stay bottom.

Tunbridge Wells got off the mark with a goal in the 6th minute from Dane Lutchford against Lordswood at the Culverden. Lee Radford made it 2-0 just 3 minutes later then Tom Bryant added the 3rd Wells’ goal after 25 minutes. Paul Booth got in on the act 2 minutes later for 4-0 and Radford hit his 2nd and the Wells 5th with 3 minutes left of the first half. 5 minutes into the second half Lutchford added the Wells’ 6th goal then, within a minute, Booth added the 7th. The Wells stay 4th, now 8 points clear of 5th, while the Lords drop a place to 14th.

Beckenham Town went 1-0 up through a Travis Gregory 10th minute goal then the same player doubled their lead 8 minutes later at Eden Park Avenue against Cray Valley PM. Laurent Hamici then went on a 4 goal rampage, scoring for the Millers on 21, 28, 30 and 33 minutes for a 2-4 half time scoreline. Gregory was not going to let Hamici get all the glory and just before the hour mark he completed his hat-trick then went on to equal the Millers’ scorer’s 4 goals in the 65th minute. Jamie Turner had the last word for Becks when he scored the winning goal 9 minutes from full time. Becks stay 6th and the Millers stay 8th.

Crowborough Athletic travelled to Lingfield where they shared a 0-0 half time scoreline. After the break Scott Treleaven broke the deadlock in the 65th minute then Jon Trotter made it 0-2 to the Crows with 19 minutes left to play. The Crows move up 2 places to 10th while the Lingers stay in 15th.

Rochester United went a goal down to a Dave Waters 27th minute strike at home to Fisher. In the second half the Spartans’ top scorer Ricky Gundry pulled them level but within 3 minutes Alfie Roche had put the Fish back in front. The Fish move up a place to 18th while Rochester remain in 17th.
