It’s as you were at the top of the Premier Division table as the first 4 all won to create a gap on the rest while at the bottom Tower Hamlets are now distant as wins for those that were nearest means the new boys are now well adrift.
Chatham Town are still top and still scoring for fun as they added a further 6 to an already impressive tally making it 54 goals for the season so far.
Erith Town were on the receiving end today but very much held their own before eventually going down 6-3 at home in an entertaining and well attended match.
There were 9 different scorers at the Erith Stadium including Dan Bradshaw and Jack Evans, with the prolific pairing now clear of the rest in the individual scorers charts.
Corinthian remain level on points with the Chats after returning from the Mayfield Stadium with their 9th win of this young season.
There were 6 different scorers in this one with Josh Stirman getting the first and Louie Clarke notching the last in a 4-2 win for the Hoops.
A third defeat in a row for AFC Croydon drops them to 17th place while Corinthian are in second.
Tunbridge Wells are third, but only just as they needed a late winner to edge out Glebe.
Early goals from Euan Sahadow and Jamie Philpot were added to in the final minute by Richard Atkins giving Wells a narrow win that keeps them among the leading pack.
Sheppey United are among that bunch too and still have their unbeaten record intact as they came out best in a 5-goal thriller with Beckenham Town.
Once again it was a goal near the end that earned Sheppey the points with Billy Bennett getting the winner that keeps them in 4th.
Hollands & Blair conceded a rare goal but scored 2 themselves to remain in the promotion conversation thanks to a win over K Sports.
Following a Tom Loynes opener for the hosts and Michael-Frazier Osunkoya leveller Matt Gething won the game with his 78th minute decider keeping Blair inside the Top 6. It is now 10 without a win for the Paperboys and they drop to 20th.
Erith & Belvedere distanced themselves from trouble with a 3-1 win at Crowbrough Athletic.
A first half Jamie Humphris hat-trick gave the Deres their second win of the campaign bumping them up several places to 15th.
Canterbury City are also on the rise after they recovered from 2-0 down to win at home to Punjab United.
Luke Adams and Rohan Badbhagi had given the visitors a good advantage inside just 15 minutes long before the second half comeback commenced.
Goals from Danny Rumble and Danny Keyte drew the game level before an injury time winner, and first goal for the Club, from Dale Horton gave City the points, however unlikely that seemed just a short time earlier.
Bearsted completed back-to-back victories with a 4-1 victory at Welling Town.
Harrison Hatful netted a double for the Bears alongside goals from Jordan Ababio and Tom Penfold as they handed their hosts a 6th successive loss.
Despite this being a high-scoring season we have also had our fair share of 0-0’s and we had 2 more today to bring the Division total up to 10.
Fisher v Deal Town and Lordswood v Balham were both goalless showing that defences not just attacks can have their moment in the sun.
After a blank midweek the Premier Division returns next Saturday with another 8 exciting fixtures!
