The Non-League Football Paper - - NATIONAL LEAGUE SOUTH - By Ryan Day

MARGATE slipped to rock bot­tom of the Na­tional League South ta­ble af­ter be­ing beaten 3-0 strug­gling Bishop’s Stort­ford.

These two sides en­tered the game in dread­ful form and prop­ping up the rest of the ta­ble, but a Greg Cun­dle first half strike fol­lowed by a first goal for Phil Walsh and an Em­manuel Ade­bowale strike con­demned Margate to an­other de­feat that sent them bot­tom of the ta­ble.

Margate started brightly but it was the vis­i­tors who took the lead in the 28th minute as a long Johnny Herd throw in was fum­bled by Valery Pa­je­tat be­fore be­ing turned home by for­mer Margate loa­nee Cun­dle.

Stort­ford dou­bled their ad­van­tage just min­utes af­ter the break as new sign­ing Walsh, an­other for­mer Blues player headed home un­marked to set Stort­ford on their way to a much needed three points.

On-loan Dover Ath­letic striker Ira Jack­son had a half chance to re­duce the ar­rears but his fierce shot was pushed away by Stort­ford Keeper Harry Voss as the Blues looked for a way back into the game.

The re­sult was con­firmed in the later stages of the game as the ball was turned home by Ade­bowale to make it 3-0 and lift Stort­ford off the bot­tom and above the Blues. STAR MAN: Phil Walsh (Bish­ops Stort­ford) EN­TER­TAIN­MENT: ★★★★★
