What Happened This Weekend In The National League

By Sam Elliott

The good starters continue to impress on an historic weekend for the National League.

On the competition’s 40th anniversary, the signs are that it could be another season to rival the best of them.

Woking are back with a bang - they stunned AFC Fylde 4-1 away from home to maintain their blistering return.

Alan Dowson’s side romped to the points with Jake Hyde at the double. Another Dave Tarpey free-kick and a Kane Ferdinand goal gave their fans a day to remember.

But Solihull Moors are just ahead of them - they avoided a scare against Ebbsfleet.

The bottom side went ahead but Moors dug deep and a scrappy own goal gave Tim Flowers’ team a 2-1 win.

FC Halifax needed Jerome Binnom-Williams' first goals for his new club to claim a 1-1 draw at Aldershot.

Bromley are up to third thanks to a fantastic 3-2 win at Hartlepool United. Reeco Hackett-Fairchild scored twice to take the points back to south east London.

In the live BT Sport game, a Scott Quigley goal was enough for Barrow who ran out 1-0 winners at home to Yeovil.

Maidenhead United have had a great start - but were yet to win at home.

That’s all changed after Danny Whitehall’s brace late on capped an impressive 4-1 win over Chorley.

The Magpies have now let in ten goals in their last two games.

Elliot Osborne sealed the deal for Stockport County - they won 2-0 at home to Eastleigh as Jim Gannon’s man stay in the groove.

Tommy Wright got the winner for unbeaten Sutton United as they kept up their good record at Boreham Wood.

Mike Fondop-Talom’s two goals weren’t enough for Chesterfield to win at Barnet, 2-2 it ended at the Hive.

There were so many strikers scoring twice - Angelo Balanta did too as his Dagenham side got the better of Harrogate 4-2 in East London.

Dover have started much better this year but went down 2-1 at home to a Jamie Reid-inspired Torquay.
