In a pretty good weekend for our local teams, Marvin Elliott’s double on his home debut secured Crawley victory over Yeovil by 2 goals to nil at the Broadfield stadium on Saturday afternoon. The win moves the Reds up to 12th in League One.
In the Ryman League South, South Park beat Ramsgate by 3 goals to 1 in a thrilling away match. Meanwhile, Three Bridges came out 2 – 1 winners at home to Whitstable Town.
And in the FA Cup second qualifying round, Redhill overcame Tonbridge Angels 2 – 1 at Kiln Brow. The only negative this weekend was Merstham’s 2 – 1 away defeat at Whitehawk.
In football, it was another poor league one performance as Crawley Town went down 2 nil at Preston.
Not much better in the Ryman League, where Redhill lost 1 nil at home to Walton Casuals, while Three Bridges lost 1 nil at Walton and Hersham. And it was a massive 4 nil home defeat for East Grinstead who were hosting Sittingbourne.
On a more positive note, South Park managed a 2 all home draw against Chipstead and Merstham had a good away performance drawing 3 all at Hythe.
Crawley Town ended a run of four consecutive League One defeats with an Izale McLeod goal enough to defeat Fleetwood at the Broadfield Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

In the two Ryman South matches this weekend, Three Bridges had an excellent 4 – 1 away win at Corinthian Casuals while East Grinstead Town were hammered 5 – 1 at home to Guernsey.
