Wayne Beaney, Tom Win­der and Tim Sims all scored twice as Rol­ven­den made home ad­van­tage count beat­ing Wool­pack 8-0 in the first round of the League Cup. Grounds­men Steve and Andy Bryant’s hard work made sure the game went ahead at Gate­field af­ter the venue was switched. Cul­ley Sayer’s penalty put Rol­ven­den ahead and Tim Sims made it 2-0 by half-time. Beaney and Win­der ex­tended the lead in the sec­ond half, with Tay­lor and Sims adding two more in a game in which ref­eree Glen Childs won praise. Top scorer Ryan Prior hit the win­ner as Brom­ley Green 3rds won 2-1 at River­side. Ol­lie Perkins fired the visi­tors in front be­fore Green were forced to reshuf­fle af­ter Rob­bie Richard­son went off in­jured. Sloppy de­fend­ing al­lowed River­side back in the game in the sec­ond half and Green missed sev­eral chances to re­gain the lead. How­ever, Prior set­tled the tie, fol­low­ing good play down the left, with Tom Moon named man-of-the-match. Josh Beech­ing had a part to play in all three goals as Lydd United beat vil­lage ri­vals Town A 3-2. Beech­ing’s cor­ner set-up Shan­non Hod­son’s opener for a 1-0 half-time lead be­fore he added the sec­ond him­self af­ter the break. Poor United de­fend­ing gifted the A side a way back with Adam Her­ring­ton get­ting both. Another Beech­ing as­sist led to the win­ner, Lee Gosbee head­ing in his free-kick for the win­ner, with ref­eree Rick Howlett another of­fi­cial to earn praise for his dis­play. Skip­per Mark Lawrence scored twice as Willes­bor­ough Ath­letic emerged 3-1 win­ners over Ten­ter­den Town at Recre­ation Ground Road. A mis­take by goal­keeper Matt King gifted Ten­ter­den an early lead, which they held un­til half-time. Lawrence lev­elled, scor­ing di­rect from a cor­ner, be­fore Luke Walder added the sec­ond, con­vert­ing Ryan Fitzger­ald’s set-up. Lawrence then got the third from another set-piece, strik­ing a free-kick into the bot­tom right-hand cor­ner.
