Leaders Marlow sit three points clear at the top of the Bostik South Central Division, but it could so easily have been five. On a day when none of their top five rivals managed a win, Marcus Mealing gave the home side the lead at the Alfred David Ground, only for Elliott Bailey to grab a last minute equaliser for Hertford Town.
Second and third shared a six goal thriller, as Bracknell Town fell behind, went ahead, were pegged back, fell behind once more and eventually grabbed a point at home to Hayes and Yeading United. A Scott Donnelly penalty gave the away side an early lead, only for a Seb Bowerman double to make it advantage Robins by half time; but Toby Little and Hassan Jalloh then turned the game on its head. Harrison Bayley’s late goal for Bracknell made it 3-3, and that’s how it remained, ensuring that the 338 at Larges Lane were thoroughly entertained.
Ashford Town are up to sixth, The Tangerines walloping five at Uxbridge on a day that the home side will want to quickly forget. It was three-nil by half time, Adam Baigent, Kofi Lockhart-Adams and Jack Beadle with the goals, and a Mark Bitmead double ensured that Uxbridge’s previous good run- three wins in three before the match- came to an end.
Eighth place Hanwell Town could only manage a 0-0 draw at Molesey, who remain in eighteenth, whilst fifth place Waltham Abbey continued to stutter, suffering their fourth defeat in five as a Chiduben Onokwai double gave FC Romania the points at Capershotts, despite an Ellis Brown consolation.
Finally, two late goals saw Ware and Chipstead take a point apiece from a 3-3 draw at Wodson Park. Sam Clayton gave the Chips an early lead, but goals in the last five minutes of the first half from Dave Cowley and Adams Brandon turned the game on its head and gave Ware the lead before the interval. Izzy Bademosi’s eleventh goal of the season brought the away side level, and then last minute goals from Sam Bell for the Chips and a second from Cowley brought the match to a close.
