Kingstonian 2-5 East Thurrock United
East Thurrock jumped ahead of Kingstonian, as the two took the final two in the top half of the league table, following a five-two win at a wet Kingsmeadow.

Higgins struck again just after the half hour mark, further extended just after half time and again through Kye Ruel in the 65th minute. Traynor pulled it back to four-two in the 70th minute but Higgins completed his hat trick to secure a comfortable winning margin for East Thurrock.

Manager Alan Dowson commented after the game, "This was an opportunity to play some of the youngsters. We were sloppy in the game and they punished us, but for me the new season starts now".

Wealdstone 4-1 Kingstonian
The ten men of Kingstonian struggled to keep with Wealdstone, as the hosts prevailed by four goals to one.

Ian Gayle was sent off in the 25th minute, having been adjudged to have denied a goalscoring opportunity, and the K's found themselves a goal down going into the break after Lee Chappell's shot squirmed past Rob Tolfrey five minutes before the break.

A bright start to the second half saw Bobby Traynor level the scores from the penalty spot in the 54th minute, though the Stones were ahead again within minutes through Richard Jolly. The closing stages were rather one-sides as Wealdstone pushed on, and further goals followed from substitutes Peter Dean and Connor Smith before the end.

Full details of the match are now available.
