With just one week to go until the season starts many SCEFL teams took to the field today to fine tune their preparations and get ready for the big kick-off.

Erith Town caught the eye with their result at Margate. Despite missing some key players The Dockers won the game 2-1 with Fred Obasa and Steadman Callender getting the goals. Unfortunately the match was overshadowed by an injury to midfielder Jack Fenton.

Just a few days after losing their manager to a Football League club, Chatham Town hosted Welling United. We don’t normally like goalless games but against a Step 2 side a clean sheet is an impressive possession.

Kennington played landlords Ashford United in an entertaining affair at Homelands. A strong second half performance from Ton rewarded with a share of the spoils with Harry Stow, Reiss Crimmen and young striker Noah Carney all netting in a 3-3 draw.

Erith & Belvedere also took on an Isthmian South East side, and in a good showing edged a 2-1 win. Thanks to an early own goal and a second half Matt Neary effort ‘The Deres’ warmed up for Hollands & Blair next week in perfect style.

Whitstable Town were also SCEFL victims today with Canterbury City beating them 4-2 with Teddy Nelson among the City scorers.

A Richard Pingling goal was the only one of the game as Croydon won 1-0 at Isthmian South Central side South Park.

At half-time it looked like Rusthall were heading for victory at home to Ramsgate thanks to Danny Lear helping himself to an early hat-trick. The Step 4 side came back well though and took the game 4-3.

It was also 4-3 at The Lindsey Field where Punjab United beat Lydd Town. Rohan Badbhagi and Will Johnson-Cole each scored a brace for Punjab who were 1-0 behind at the break.

Another all-SCEFL game with plenty of goals took place at Cobdown with Greenways hosting Deal Town. It finished in a comfortable 8-0 victory for Deal with Connor Coyne laying claim to 3 of them.

Welling Town had a day out near Cambridge taking on St Neots Town, managed by former Boots coach Pete Gill. With goals from Carl Oblitey and Kevin Osei, Welling returned on the coach as 2-1 winners.

There was a comfy 7-0 win for Crowborough Athletic against Kings Hill, Tower Hamlets beat Enfield Borough 3-0, Fisher won 3-0 against Bishop Stortford Swifts, Tooting Bec won against Kensington & Ealing and Holmesdale beat Farnborough OBG 6-0, with George Acland scoring a hat-trick in that one.

With goals from Jack Mahon, Michael Osei, Johnny Hernandez and Robert Hicks x2, Meridian VP won 5-1 at home to Otford United while Rochester United beat VCD Athletic u23s 2-1.

FC Elmstead beat a Guildford side 2-0, Snodland Town won 3-2 at New Romney and Larkfield & New Hythe won 3-1 against Eastbourne Town, with the Jake’s Beecroft and Bates among the scorers.

There were defeats for SC Thamesmead at home to Faversham Town, Lewisham Borough at Redhill, Lordswood at home to Epsom & Ewell, Bearsted agagainst Hythe Town and Hollands & Blair at Sevenoaks Town.

There were no goals between Faversham Strike Force and Halls AFC.

A few games have scorelines yet unkown.
