It was goals galore in this week’s Division D with Hampton &
Richmond Borough hammering an astonishing 16 goals past Whyteleafe with no
reply. And you thought the Champions League was entertaining?
This mid-table mayhem now moves Borough up into sixth place
leaving their counterparts Whyteleafe in the dirt now being second-from-bottom
in the league with foot-of-the-table Corinthian-Casuals having four games in
hand to bridge the seven-point gap.
At the other end of the table, leaders Aldershot Town took
another step towards the title with a comfortable 3-7 away victory over
Carshalton Athletic despite only having 12 players available.
A hattrick for Tony Okoromadu was complimented nicely by
another hattrick plus one for Brian Galach to see the Shot’s maintain their
strong run of form and pick up their 16th win of the campaign.
Academy coach Josh Gallagher took to twitter to say it was
“a strong performance from the boys… we were stretched with injuries and
“Having only 12 players on their big pitch didn’t seem to
make a difference.”
Just behind the Shots, Havant & Waterlooville kept up
the chase with a 4-0 win over Tooting & Mitcham to mean a win with their
game in hand would put the Hawks onto level points with the current leaders,
however their goal difference is almost half.
In the final game of this week a 3-3 draw was played out
between Fulham (Coulsdon) and Woking which is a point that doesn’t really suit
But with Woking being pretty much guaranteed fourth place it
is perhaps the Fulham side that will be more disappointed they couldn’t grab a
winner in this one to promote them from bottom table uncertainty.
Next week there is a magical eight games being played to
make up for the numerous postponements over the last few months.
The week kicks off with a trip to Whyteleafe for Eastleigh
Whites on Monday, with the Spitfires hoping it could be hugely successful week
as they aim to win their games in hand and head to top of the tree.
On Wednesday, the Whites play again at home to Carshalton
whilst it’s Woking Vs Corinthian-Casuals, Whyteleafe against Fulham (Coulsdon),
Tooting & Mitcham Vs Hampton & Richmond Borough and AFC Wimbledon Vs
Aldershot Town in a packed day of action.
Then the weekend comes early as on Friday there is a
bonus-bundle of games.
Hampton & Richmond Borough square off with Carshalton
whilst it’s a hattrick of games for Eastleigh as they play a big game in the
silverware race against Havant & Waterlooville.
A lot of games could mean a lot of change in next week’s
table. It’s still all to play for.
