The Non-League Football Paper - - BOSTIK LEAGUE - By Jim Rowe

MERSTHAM grabbed all the points with Alex Addai’s 89thminute win­ner in a game that con­tained lit­tle ex­cite­ment for the sup­port­ers who braved the cold.

The first pe­riod will not last long in the mem­ory.

Ex-An­gel An­dre McCollin forced his old goal­keep­ing col­league Jonny Henly into a smart save with his legs in the sixth minute.

For Ton­bridge there were half chances for Dan Thompson and in the 40th minute An­gels’ Ryan Wor­rall let fly from 25 yards but it was rel­a­tively com­fort­able for Merstham keeper Christo­pher Haigh.

There was a lit­tle more ac­tion in the sec­ond half and most of that came from the home side with Joe Turner pro­vid­ing most of the in­spi­ra­tion.

There were two big chances for the luck­less Thompson while at the other end Addai and sub­sti­tute An­tone Dou­glas gave the An­gels’ de­fence a few wor­ry­ing mo­ments.

The game ap­peared to be drift­ing out for a goal­less draw but on 89 min­utes a slip by An­gels’ full-back Tom Jel­ley let in Addai who smartly placed the ball past Henly and the points were on their way back to Merstham.
