The Hawks picked up their first points of the season with a welcome 2-0 Vanarama National League South win over Margate at Westleigh Park.

Matt Paterson gave Lee Bradbury’s side a first-half lead with his first goal for the club.

Dan Strugnell sealed the win with a superb strike midway through the second half.

It was a difficult afternoon for Gosport Borough against a stubborn Maidenhead United as Alex Pixe’s side drew 0-0 on their travels.

Pike named the same starting XI which ran out 4-0 winners against Weston-super-Mare on Tuesday for today’s trip to Maidenhead, but his side were unable to find a way through the hosts’ defence.

Petersfield had their first Southern League victory snatched from under them with the last kick of the game against Barton Rovers.

The Rams went ahead when Joe Richardson rolled the ball into the net from 15 yards.

Joe Renyolds leveled for the visitors with a 25-yard free-kick, before Rams skipper Ryan Woodford gave the hosts a second-half lead.

The hosts thought there were walking away from Love Lane with all three points until David Long-King equalised with the last kick of the game.

An attacking display from Moneyfields saw Miles Rutherford’s side move into the next round of the FA Cup with a 3-1 victory over Hythe & Dibden.

Moneys took the lead on 34 minutes when neat build-up play in midfield saw the ball come to Steve Hutchings, who took his time to slot the ball home.

Moments later the visitors doubled their lead when Toby McCauley powered a header into the back of the net.

The host pulled a goal back through Bill Derver, before Ryan Pennary rounded off the scoring for Moneyfields.

Elsewhere, Portchester advanced in the Cup, beating Bournemouth 3-0 thanks to two goals from Alex Baldacchino and one for Ash Howes.

Meanwhile, Fareham lost 2-0 to Brokenhurst, and Horndean were beaten 3-1 by Sholing.
