Great Start for New Clarets Boss

Due to the FA Trophy, only three league matches took place in the Skrill North on Saturday, all involving teams at the….

…..bottom end of the table.

Bath City moved into the top five after winning 1-0 at Meadow Park against Boreham Wood, who are now third-from-bottom.

Former Truro City favourite Andy Watkins scored the only goal of the game for the Romans after just 7 minutes.

Bottom-markers Dorchester Town prevented visiting Eastbourne Boro from also moving into the top five when they shared a goalless draw at the Park Avenue Stadium.

And it was an encouraging start for new Chelmsford City boss Mark Hawkes as he watched his charges beat mid-table Farnborough 3-1 at Melbourne.

Sam Long put City in front after 16 minutes from 20 yards after the ball had been cleared to him.

Harry Lee equalised after 37 minutes, but just 6 minutes later Joe Ward restored the Clarets lead.

And with 11 minutes to go, experienced striker Bertie Brayley came off the bench to make it 3-1 and send City up to sixteenth place as a result of the three points.
