There was one game in the Bostik League Premier and Bostik South on Wednesday night.

In the Premier, Leatherhead moved to ninth spot, just four points off a time five spot, after a 2-1 Fetcham Grove victory over bottom-markers Burgess Hill Town.

It was goalless at the break, with the visitors having the slightly better of it.

And it was the Hillians who broke the deadlock in the 58th minute when a cross from Joey Taylor found Jack Brivio, who guided his header past Tanners` keeper Zaki Oualah.

But the hosts were back on level terms within 10 minutes when Sean Clohessy fired home from close range.

And what proved to be Leatherhead`s winner came with less than 5 minutes remaining when Lee Minshull poked home from close range following a goalmouth scramble.

In the Bostik South, Thamesmead Town moved into twelfth spot after a 2-2 draw with VCD Athletic, who remain in eighteenth.

Danny Parish gave Mead a 14th minute lead that Warren Mfula cancelled out within 5 minutes.

The visitors took a 2-1 lead into half-time after Alfie Cue`s 32nd minute second.

But Bode Anidugbe equalised in the 65th minute and the game fizzled out after that.
