Premier Division Results – 3rd August
The six games on Tuesday night saw wins for Chatham Town, Glebe, Deal Town and Hollands & Blair while Bearsted drew at home to Crowborough Athletic and Kennington held Sheppey United.
For Glebe it was a second win in 4 days, another clean sheet, and a place at the top of the table.
They overcame Erith Town thanks to a Jamie Philpot hat-trick – with the 3rd of the goals being a stunning 25 yard effort. Sol Baugh got the other for the Foxes who were 3-0 up at the break and now looking as genuine contenders for this Premier Division crown.
At the Bauvill, an early Liam Friend goal got Chatham Town off to the perfect start at home to Canterbury City. He also scored at Deal on Saturday, but this one will stay in the record books, as will Luke Rooney’s 80th minute penalty, which sealed a 2-0 victory for the dominant Chats.
Deal Town also picked up a win as they overcame Lordswood 3-0 at the Bill Bishop Memorial Stadium.
Sam Wilson’s early strike got the ball rolling while Billy Munday closed the show with a second half double.
Hollands & Blair picked up their first points of the campaign with a 2-1 win at Punjab United.
Calum McGeehan got the opener for Blair, Diljit Boora levelled but Harry Kingdon got the winner for the visitors in the 73rd minute.
Two game finished all-square, and naturally for the SCEFL, there were plenty of goals in each.
At Homelands, Kennington and Sheppey United shared 6 goals with the hosts never behind and fully deserving off their first Premier Division point.
Gary Lockyer scored first, Danny Smith equalised and Callum Peck gave the Ton the lead at the break.
After the restart Gary Clarke made it 3-1 before substitute Junior Aikhionbare claimed a double to see the game finish even.
The excitement came early and late in Otham, where Bearsted and Crowborough Athletic played out a 2-2 draw.
Sam Stace lobbed the Bears ahead in the 4th minute before Jacob Lambert quickly restored the score parity.
It stayed the same way until the final stages of the game when Lekan Majayegbe put the hosts back in front until Rhys Bartlett earned the Crows a point from the spot in the final minute.
There are two further games in the Premier Division on Wednesday night.
