National League South round-up as Dartford reach the summit

By Matt Badcock

Dartford top the National League South thanks to a 4-2 win against Eastbourne Borough on Tuesday night.

The Darts are at the summit on goal difference as one of four teams on 22 points.

Alex Brown, Alfie Pavey, captain Elliot Bradbrook and Tom Murphy scored the goals on a night club stalwart Ryan Hayes made his 400th start.

Jamie Taylor and a Lee Noble own goal got Eastbourne on the scoresheet inside the last 10 minutes but it wasn’t going to stop Tony Burman’s side making it three wins in a row.

Truro City are second after a 1-0 win against Chippenham Town. Andrew Neal grabbed the only goal of the game just after the break before Chippenham striker Andy Sandell was sent off with three minutes left.

East Thurrock are third after their win against Chelmsford City on Monday night while St Albans make up the top four.

Ian Allinson’s side saw two points slip away in stoppage time on Saturday when Sergio Torres hit a late equaliser for Eastbourne.

But they got back to winning ways with a late goal of their own on Tuesday when Sam Merson struck on 90 minutes to see off Havant & Waterlooville.

Shaun Lucien had put the Saints ahead before Bradley Tarbuck equalised for the visiting Hawks.

Braintree Town bounced back from defeat at the weekend with a 1-0 win at Concord Rangers. Phil Roberts scored his eighth goal of the season.

He’s tied at the top of the goal charts with Weston-super-Mare’s Dayle Grubb, who scored twice in their 3-3 thriller with Oxford City. The goalscoring bounced back and forth with Weston reduced to ten men in the first half – Aden Baldwin was sent off – and Oxford having Freddie Grant shown red in the second half.

Hemel Hempstead beat Bognor Regis 3-1 – Jordan Parkes, Roman Liburd and Charlie Sheringham were all on target as they sit eighth in the table.

And Whitehawk are still without a win after defeat at Welling United. Harry Phipps hit the game’s solitary goal on 28 minutes.
