Mitch Hahn and Har­ri­son Midda replied for Wood­ford.

Kay said: “I was de­lighted with the at­ti­tude of my play­ers. They are very ea­ger to im­prove as in­di­vid­u­als and as a team.”

Strikes from Sam Modlin, Kyle Bent­wood and James Abrams earned Oak­wood B their sixth win of the sea­son as they won 3-1 at Ath­letic Bil­baum.

But man­ager Ja­son Stein was not im­pressed by the con­di­tion of the play­ing sur­face. “We’re pleased to get the job done on a pitch not fit for farm an­i­mals,” he said. “It was a re­ally hard game to get any sort of mo­men­tum.”

Joel Holder de­scribed sub­sti­tute Jono Gaon as “un­playable” as he fired a hat-trick in Finch­ley City’s 6-4 tri­umph over Faith­fold A.

Fur­ther strikes from Oli Sade, Dan Po­lak and Eli Dav­ila en­sured Finch­ley re­turned to win­ning ways. Faith­fold re­sponded through Marc Charles, with two goals, Jamie Kent and Craig Cole.

Holder com­mented: “Jono’s fin­ish­ing was just top-class. It was a sen­sa­tional per­for­mance from a spe­cial player.”

Louie Lib­bert reg­is­tered his first hat­trick for Los Blan­cos as they out­classed Hen­don B 5-0. Josh Cramer and Avi Kesten­baum added the gloss.

Boss Nick Grosse re­marked: “The league table sim­ply doesn’t do us jus­tice but I was pleased that the lads could walk away winners.”

Jor­dan Shar­i­fian boosted his chances of win­ning the cov­eted Golden Boot in his first sea­son af­ter steer­ing Tem­ple For­tune to a 5-0 tri­umph over Faith­fold B. Brett Stead and Jake Marks clinched the points.

For­tune man­ager Si­mon Linden praised new­comer Ja­son Lind­say and the re­turn­ing Ben Isaacs.

RC UK FC’s pro­mo­tion hopes were dealt a blow as they suc­cumbed 5-4 to Mill Hill Dons. The Dons stormed into a 4-0 lead at half-time through Adam Isaacs, Sam Kahn, Joel Sin­clairHorne and Nick Phillips. RC UK ral­lied su­perbly to level through Avi Markiewicz, Dovi Vogel, Avi Levy and Leor Harel but Isaacs’ sec­ond of the morn­ing sealed the points.

Dons boss Bran­don Hamme re­marked: “This re­sult show­cased fur­ther we can beat any­one in this league on our day.”

Liam Stein en­sured North Lon­don Raiders C con­cluded their league cam­paign with a point fol­low­ing a well­con­tested 1-1 draw against Red­bridge C. Nate Kashket lev­elled for Red­bridge with an ex­cel­lent in­di­vid­ual solo ef­fort.

NLR boss Sam Rose said: “We can be very pleased with how we ac­quit­ted our­selves. The team is in a far bet­ter place than it was at the start of the sea­son. We’ll be look­ing to 2017/18 with pro­mo­tion firmly in our sights.”

Hertswood Vale climbed off the foot of the table af­ter a 5-1 win over Cat­ford & Brom­ley Mac­cabi fol­low­ing braces from Harry Gra­ham and James Mil­let and one from Josh Gorb.
