Haringey Borough have started the season in imperious form, and yesterday doubled their goals scored tally at the expense of Brightlingsea Regent. Anthos Solomou and Coby Rowe gave Borough a comfortable lead at half time, and three minutes after the break former Apoel Cypriot international Anthos Solomou made it three-nil, before getting his hat trick- and his side’s fourth- with twenty four minutes remaining, undoubtedly sparking a cowbell salute from the Borough faithful. Regent didn’t give up, and Charlie Lindoe managed to finally beat Valery Pajetet eight minutes from time, but Borough weren’t done, and Georgios Aresti made it five a minute from time. There’s an interview with Borough manager Tom Loizou in the Non League Paper today, by the way.
Hornchurch remain unbeaten and in second place, picking up three points and three goals in defeating Kingstonian. They were two goals up after only sixteen minutes, Joe Christou following Chris Dickson onto the scoresheet, and Ronnie Winn made things comfortable midway into the second half.
Folkestone Invicta are level on points with the Urchins although their goal difference isn’t as good; but yesterday they did something to improve it, scoring four goals at Potters Bar Town. Scott Heard gave them the lead, and although Josh Hutchinson got an equaliser for the Scholars Heard was on hand to make it two seven minutes later. Ira Jackson then got in on the act and added two more, making it four-one with his second in the very last minute.

Merstham are up to sixth. The Moatsiders fell behind early on against East Thurrock United, Frankie Merrifield scoring from the spot, but after the break Frank Wilson’s men turned the game on its head, Delano Sam-Yorke and Omar Folkes equalising and then scoring what proved to be the winner.
We were at Margate yesterday, where an enthralling match saw the home side record their first victory of the season after three draws and a defeat, and left Lewes rock bottom and still searching for victory.

Finally for the Premier Division, Carshalton Athletic appear to be getting back to their best, and their second victims in a row were Corinthian-Casuals, who they defeated by the odd goal in five at King George’s Field. The Robins were two goals up after only six minutes, Ernold Haxhiu and Ricky Korboa finding the net, but Nathaniel Pinney reduced the arrears from the spot right on half time. After the break Jerry Amoo restored Athletic’s two goal cushion, but they weren’t comfortable for long, Leon Lalor-Dell getting another one back eleven minutes from time. Casuals couldn’t find an equaliser, however, and remain winless, whilst Athletic climb to ninth.
