Wad­dock’s won­ders too hot for Heed

The Non-League Football Paper - - FRONT PAGE - By Matt Bad­cock

FABIEN ROBERT fired Alder­shot Town back to the sum­mit of the Na­tional League with a late win­ner at Gateshead.

The Shots are back on top thanks to the at­tacker’s 83rd­minute strike on an

ac­tion-packed day in Non-League’s top flight.

Dover Ath­letic are sec­ond on goal dif­fer­ence af­ter thrash­ing Chester 4-0, while Da­gen­ham & Red­bridge com­plete the top three fol­low­ing a 3-1 vic­tory at home to FC Hal­i­fax Town. And Hartle­pool Town’s re­vival con­tin­ued with a 2-1 win at Ley­ton Ori­ent – Rhys Oates’ goal con­demn­ing the O’s to a third de­feat on the bounce.

Mean­while, the Step 2 clubs en­tered the FA Cup but Na­tional League North duo Dar­ling­ton and Blyth Spar­tans were dumped out by South Shields and Shaw Lane re­spec­tively, while Bos­ton were held by Step 5 Haugh­mond, and Handsworth Par­ramore drew with FC United.
