Midweek Fixture List

Midweek Fixture List

The weekend is over and you are looking for your midweek fixture fix, then look no further as we have a round-up of all of this weeks fixtures. 

Gillingham Ladies 0-0 Coventry United Ladies

Gillingham Ladies started the 2018-19 FA Women’s National League Southern season with a hard fought point against promotion tipped Coventry United Ladies on Sunday afternoon.

Weekend Results

With the weekend fixtures now at an end, we bring you a round-up of the weekend results for Kent’s clubs through the leagues.

Thamesmead Town 1-2 Faversham Town

Thamesmead Town slumped to their second successive League defeat against a direct Faversham Town on Sunday who themselves collected their first League win of the season at Princes Park.

Walsall 2-1 Gillingham

First-half strikes from Morgan Ferrier and Isaiah Osbourne continued Walsall’s promising start to the season with a 2-1 win over previously undefeated Gillingham.

Bromley 1-0 Gateshead

It will be a long time before goal line technology makes its way down to the National League, but it would have cleared up the major incident of this game as Bromley snatched a controversial 88th minute winner against second placed Gateshead at Hayes Lane to record their first win of the season on Saturday.

Dartford 0-3 Wealdstone

It was a sorry afternoon for The Darts as they succumbed to back-to-back defeats with a resounding three-nil reverse to visitors Wealdstone on Saturday afternoon.

Truro City 2-2 Welling United

On one of their longer away trips, Welling dropped two points when conceding a 95th minute equaliser.

Sittingbourne 4-2 Greenwich Borough

A lot of hard work and some occasional flashes of real inspiration. It’s not rocket science this football, and Sittingbourne stayed joint top of Bostik League South East by making it two wins out of two this season.

Barnet 0-3 Ebbsfleet United

The Fleet only ever won twice at Underhill, but they started off life at The Hive with a comprehensive win over Barnet.

Canterbury City 1-0 Punjab United

A much better performance from City this week brought them a timely, albeit narrow single goal victory in what was a fairly tight game, but an early goal for the hosts coupled with some dogged defending saw them through to a much needed win and three welcome points.

Sevenoaks Town 1-2 Horsham

Sevenoaks began life as a Step 4 club with a thoroughly entertaining match against Horsham which they were unfortunate to lose, for the neutral this was a cracking game & a great advert for this level of football.

Herne Bay 0-1 Whyteleafe

The real Herne Bay team just didn’t turn up today. The visitors appeared fitter and showed tremendous work rate and desire to compete and win every ball.

Hythe Town 3-0 East Grinstead Town

Hythe Town deservedly took all three points in a 3-0 win against East Grinstead Town on Saturday afternoon as a stunning first half hat-trick from Zak Ansah blew the visitors away. 

Deal Town 3-0 Rusthall

After the disappointment of their midweek FA Cup exit Deal bounced back with a comfortable home win over Rusthall on Saturday.
