The Non-League Football Paper - - BOSTIK LEAGUE PREMIER - By Richard Mur­rill

HON­OURS were even at the Ful­licks Sta­dium as the two sides met for a sec­ond suc­ces­sive Satur­day.

Ade Yusuff put In­victa ahead in the 60th minute with a good fin­ish af­ter good work from Jack Evans and Ian Dray­cott.

But Burgess Hill equalised in the 70th minute when Ben Pope played the ball back for stand-in cap­tain Dan Beck to sweep his shot past Folkestone keeper Tim Roberts.

A 28th-minute Gary Char­man slip let Yusuff, who curled his shot just wide of the far post from the left hand side.

Seven min­utes later, Yusuff blasted his penalty over af­ter a trip by Char­man on Jo­han Ter Horst.

The Hillians then lost cap­tain Gary El­ph­ick to in­jury be­fore half-time as Beck took over the arm­band.

Right on half-time, Roberts came out to make a good save when the ball fell to Char­man on the right hand side af­ter a well­worked move.

Kieron McCann mis­fired for In­victa in the 64th minute af­ter Josh Vin­cent played a good ball up to Ter Horst.

And McCann went close in the 74th minute when he cut in from the left and his spec­u­la­tive shot dipped just wide.

STAR MAN: Ian Dray­cott (Folkestone In­victa) EN­TER­TAIN­MENT: ★★★★★
