The Hawks claimed another major FA Trophy scalp by beating National League Welling United 2-1 at Westleigh Park.

Josh Hill put the Hawks ahead with his first goal for the club in the 11th minute.

The visitors equalised seven minutes later but Shamir Mullings headed the winner just after the hour mark.

A goal at the start of each half by Jason Prior took him past 20 Ryman League premier division goals for the season and earned Bognor their fifth straight win in all competitions.

That’s after the Rocks strolled to a 2-0 win over VCD Athletic at Nyewood Lane.

Eight-man Moneyfields’ FA Vase challenge came to an end today at Dover Road as they fell to an incident-packed 2-0 defeat to Bristol Manor Farm.

The hosts, though, left the field aggrieved at the numerical advantage they were left to contend with for large periods as Jake Morgan, Jack Lee and Tyler Giddings all saw red in a game that was far from bad-tempered.

Dean Stamp and Aaron Robins scored for the visitors.

Elsewhere, AFC Portchester claimed a 1-1 draw in their highly-anticipated Wessex League premier division clash at Blackfield & Langley.

Petersfield Town’s Southern League division one central game with Chalfont St Peters fell victim to the cold weather.

Horndean and Fareham Town also saw Wessex League premier division home clashes against Hamworthy United and Team Solent respectively frozen out.
