Merstham started their 2014/15 campaign in Ryman South League with a 1 all away draw at Tooting & Mitcham United. Merstham went ahead in the 19th minute thanks to Aaron Rhule, but a late goal from Craig Watkins for Tooting ensured the teams finished level at the final whistle.

In other Ryman league results, Redhill drew 1 all with East Grinstead Town, as did Three Bridges in their encounter with Folkstone Invicta. And newley promoted South Park had a good 2 nil away win at Horsham.

Three Bridges FC friendly result

Following the Three Bridges manager Paul Faili’s new role as interim chairman, the team beat Dorking wanderers 1-0 last night.

The goal came from a stunning volley from Abu Touray in the last of their pre-season friendlies.

Faili has taken on the role from Paul Terry who stepped down after a year in the position.

He said that he is massively proud but that it’s not a position he wants permanently, adding that anyone who has the necessary experience and qualifications should come forward for the position.
