Premier Division – 4th December
Our full Premier Division fixture list gave us 41 goals today, from 6 Away and 3 Home wins, plus a 0-0 draw!
The big match was a real game of two halves while Chatham Town, Crowborough Athletic and Deal Town went goal crazy on the road.
Holm Park hosted the top of the table clash where visitors Glebe raced into a 3-0 advantage by the break, only for them to see Sheppey United peg them back in the second 45 minutes.
Jamie Philpot headed the first early on before Ryan King Elliott made it 2-0 on 24 minutes. Philpot added a fine third, giving The Foxes a decent lead at the half way mark.
Sheppey were not going to give up their unbeaten league record easily though. Especially not to a promotion rival.
Liam Gillies got their first back into the game and Ashley Sains reduced the deficit further around the hour mark.
Jefferson Aibangbee completed the comeback with 10 to play and Sheppey even had chances to win it before the final whistle was blown.
With both dropping points, Chatham Town’s big win at Tower Hamlets has seen them divide this pair with the 3 of them looking to be the ones best positioned to compete for the 2 promotion places on offer this season.
The Chats hot 10 against the struggling basement boys Hamlets.
It was 7-o by the break with the double-figure end result including hat-tricks for Jack Evans and Dan Bradshaw.
Jacob Lambert went one better by scoring 4 for Crowborough at Lordswood.
Lucas Murrain got the other 2 and with their 5th win in a row, The Crows are top 7.
At Oakley Road Erith Town were 2-1 winners against Holmesdale.
The Dockers are well placed inside the top 4 and have now opened up a decent gap on the sides below them.
