Vanarama National League club Dagenham & Redbridge enjoyed a 3-1 win at the Fullicks Stadium against Bostik League Premier side Folkestone Invicta.

Mason Bloomfield bagged a quickfire early brace for the visitors.

Ian Draycott reduced the deficit midway through the second half before the Daggers grabbed a third as Bloomfield completed his hat-trick.

The Daggers` league rivals Boreham Wood took on a League Two Barnet outfit
made up of a mix of under-23s and first-team squad on their new 5G pitch at Meadow Park.

Boreham Wood broke the deadlock in the 37th minute, Shaun Jeffers and they doubled their lead 10 minutes after the restart, Tom Day conceding a penalty which Jeffers converted.

Barnet hit back straight away, Nana Kyei picking up on some loose defending before slotting home.

In the 79th minute, Boreham Wood revived their two-goal cushion through Angelo Balanta and with almost the final kick of the game, Kieran Murtagh made it 4-1.

A youthful Nuneaton Town side drew 1-1 at now Midland League Rugby Town.

Rugby`s goal was unfortunately converted by a Boro defender, with Greg Mills replying.

Nuneaton`s league rivals Gainsborough Trinity hosted League One Doncaster Rovers at the Northolme and were beaten late on by the odd goal in five.

Bradley Wells headed Trinity into an early lead and the former Spalding United striker doubled his and his team`s tally on the half-hour mark with a fine volley.

Jacob Fletcher reduced the arrears on 58 minutes and then James Morris equalised 10 minutes from time.

And just 3 minutes later, Rovers won it through Lewis Scattergood.

The visitors weren’t behind for long as Lance Smith restored Hereford’s lead 3 minutes later from the penalty spot.

K’s took the lead in the 47th minute when Tom Derry reacted first to Lewis Taylor’s thunderbolt shot that hit the bar. George Purcell equalised 3 minutes later with a superb shot from outside the area, and in the 65th minute the Urchins took a deserved lead when Ross Wall scored.

Lewis Taylor equalised with a diving header in the 81st minute, and K’s then hit the front when Joe Turner turned and slid a shot into the far corner.

Triallist Kevin Dunwald netted Rovers` consolation late on.

Evo-Stik League South Premier side Dorchester Town suffered a disappointing 2-1 defeat to Evo-Stik South West outfit Bideford on their own Avenue Stadium patch.
