Bostik Premier Division
Current Table - Top Eight Only
|4||BOGNOR REGIS TOWN||8||+7||14|
It's all very early days in the Bostik Premier with teams playing seven or eight games of a lengthy forty-six game season. Tonbridge Angels are still top of the table but did suffer their first defeat yesterday at home to Bishops Stortford who were 0-3 up on 60 minutes through goals from Ryan Charles and a brace from former Chalfont St Peter striker Jake Cass. A red card for Johnville Renee brought the visitor's down to 10 men for the final 25 minutes and allowed Tonbridge to pull two goals back to make the final score 2-3.
Since Adam Flint resigned as boss of the Hertfordshire club they have won two league games and one cup game under caretaker's Steve Smith and Jamie Cureton.
Pushing them in second spot are free-scoring Enfield Town who won 1-6 convincingly at Corinthian Casuals yesterday with goals from Billy Bricknell (2), Bilal Sayoud, Dan Rumens, Sam Youngs and Sam Chaney.
Third placed Worthing drew 1-1 at home to Leatherhead with their goal coming in the 89th minute via Callum Kealy.
