BSS Results Roundup – October 29th 2011

Just like it’s northern counterpart, the Conference South had just five fixtures this weekend, and again there wasn’t a nil nil in sight. In total there were 21 goals scored in those five games.

The biggest winning margin of the day was achieved by Havant & Waterlooville, who put five without reply past Farnborough. Ollie Palmer and Steve Ramsey each helped themselves to a brace, and Sammy Igoe netted the other as they swept their opponents aside. Palmer now has seven goals in his last five games. The defeat leaves Farnborough fourth bottom, and they could slip into the relegation places if Staines Town win their game in hand.

Leaders Woking went six points clear with a comprehensive 4-1 win away at Truro City. A brace from the wonderfully named Paris Cowan-Hall and one each from Alan Inns and Moses Ademola brought the points back to Surrey. Truro had taken a first minute lead through Les Afful, and had been looking to build on their amazing 8-2 win against Farnborough in the previous game.

Welling United moved up to third in the table with a 2-1 win against Hampton & Richmond Borough at Park View Road. They led 2-0 at the break thanks to goals from Acheampong and Pugh, before debutant Patrick Domali scored what was in the end a consolation goal for The Beavers. Domali has joined from Norwich City on a work experience deal, with a view to a permanent move. The defeat leaves Borough bottom of the table, and they need to stop giving their opponents a two goal headstart if they are to stay in the division.

Hampton’s nearest rivals in the league, Thurrock FC, also lost, going down 3-1 at home to fellow strugglers Eastleigh. Ex-Spurs trainee Jamie Slabber netted twice for the visitors, while Drewe Broughton scored for Thurrock to equalise at 1-1 before Slabber’s second. A Hughes own goal two minutes from time sealed the win for Eastleigh, who now have a seven point cushion on the drop zone, despite being eighteenth in the table.

The other match played was between two teams also looking over their shoulders at the relegation zone. Dorchester Town ran out 3-1 winners at home to Tonbridge Angels, a result which has brought the two sides level on points. Two goals in the first eleven minutes from Dickenson and Moss gave the hosts the advantage, before a McLaggon effort brought the visitors back into it. However, Moss got his second a minute from time to seal the win.

About James Bartaby

Hey, I'm James and I'm relatively new to non-league football, having only taken in my first match in September 2011. Despite it being a 0-4 defeat for Hampton & Richmond Borough, I became a huge fan of the club and NL in general. So much so that they are now the first club that I mention when talking about which team I support! I just got massively disillusioned with top flight football in this country and the attitudes of the lawmakers and top clubs in general, and I wanted to start taking my son to see decent football. I am now the club's Deputy Press Officer, and loving every minute!
