Rocks impress in defeat

RYMAN Premier newcomers Bognor gave a spirited display before going down 2-0 to League Two Wimbledon in a friendly at Nyewood Lane on Saturday.

James Crane had a goal disallowed for Rocks in the first half and Dons were held at bay until the game’s final quarter. Action from the game pictured by Tommy McMillan.

Another crowd well into four figures watched Maidstone United’s third game at their brand-new Gallagher Stadium but the Ryman South side went down 3-0 to Conference South visitors Tonbridge, for whom Frannie Collin scored twice.

Ronnie Dolan’s early goal was enough to give Hythe an impressive 1-0 home win over Eastbourne Borough in another Ryman South-Conference South clash.

New Whitehawk signing Scott McGleish, who scored over 200 Football League goals after making his initial mark in Isthmian League football with Edgware Town, was on target in their 3-0 home win over Horsham.
