Isthmian League Round-up: Saturday 14th December

Bowers & Pitsea achieved an outstanding win in the Isthmian Premier League, as they beat table-toppers Folkestone Invicta 3-1 at the Len Salmon Stadium.

Scott Heard fired the Kent club in front after only five minutes, his effort going in off the underside of the crossbar.

But Lewis Manor equalised for Rob Small’s men with a 24th minute header before putting them in front 17 minutes from time, again with his head.

Then right at the death – in the sixth minute of time added on – Ben Sartain, whose free-kick had led to Manor’s second goal slotted the ball home for his side’s third.

Bowers remain in 17th position but are now eight points clear of the drop zone with games in hand of many of the teams around them.

Elsewhere in the Premier League East Thurrock United were beaten away to second-placed Horsham, but only narrowly as Gary Charman’s 34th minute volley proved the only difference between the two sides.

Despite the 1-0 loss Rocks remain in 8th place in the table.

In the Isthmian North leaders Maldon & Tiptree are still unbeaten, although it took goals from Martyn Stokes and Danny Parish in the final half-hour of their match at home to Dereham Town to secure yet another three points in a 2-1 victory.

Jammers goalkeeper Ben McNamara had accidentally put the Norfolk outfit in front after 16 minutes, when he deflected the ball into his own net.

Great Wakering Rovers secured a decent win in a goal-fest away to Cambridge City, which they ended up winning by four goals to two.

Yaw Ofosu put the hosts in front after 9 minutes before Jake Gordon equalised three minutes afterwards.

Kojo Apenteng then put Wakering ahead in the 65th minute before Gordon added a second a few minutes afterwards to make it 3-1.

And with full-time approaching, Billy Johnson scored a fourth before Cambridge replied through Luke Knight in stoppage time.

Rovers remain in 8th spot.

The only other Isthmian North match to survive the weather was at Park Lane, where Canvey Island were also victorious against struggling Felixstowe & Walton United.

Tobi Joseph gave the Gulls an early lead with his 15th goal of the season after just five minutes.

Jason Hallett doubled the scoreline on 27 minutes before Joseph Yaxley pulled one back for the visitors 9 minutes into the second half.

But Michael Finneran headed home his first Canvey goal in the 67th minute to make the final score 3-1.

The games between Bury Town and Grays Athletic, Coggeshall Town and Histon, Romford and Hullbridge Sports, Soham Town Rangers and Basildon United, Tilbury and Heybridge Swifts and Witham Town and Brentwood Town were all postponed due to waterlogged pitches.

In the Isthmian South Central Harlow Town picked up a point in a 1-1 home draw with South Park, but they have now gone seven games without a win in all competitions and are now eighth in the table.

Second-half substitute Adu Gyamfi’s 69th minute goal for the Hawks cancelled out Leon Moore’s 34th minute opener for the visitors.

Just above Harlow in seventh place are Waltham Abbey, who also picked up a single point in a goalless draw away to Chalfont St Peter.

Barking’s home match against Uxbridge fell victim to a waterlogged pitch and was postponed.
