Springfield faltered for the second week running as they were beaten 2-1 at home by Bishop’s Stortford Swifts. Joe Mayer scored the Springfield goal but strikes from Mark Nougher and Gavin Cockman saw the points going back to Hertfordshire and in the process prevented the defending champions moving to the summit. Frenford therefore remain leaders with a mere three points separating the top six. Leigh Ramblers completed a league double over Rayleigh Town with a 4-1 win that saw Seb Allen score twice with Tom Hollingsworth and Jack Deasy also chipping in. Canning Town added further points to the board after a 2-1 win over Basildon Town. Josh Thompson and Paul Henry scored the goals that move Canning Town closer towards safety. Basildon Town meanwhile remain bottom and are looking in dire trouble as they are now starting to be cut adrift from the rest of the division.
