National League Round Up

3 September 2015

CLUBS in the Vanarama National League have had a well-deserved midweek break after a hectic start to the new 2015/16 season.

Forest Green Rovers’ maintained their marvellous start to the 2015/16 season over the Bank Holiday  period.

Ady Pennock’s side triumphed 2-0 at Aggborough against a still yet-to-win Kidderminster Harriers  side last Saturday and followed that with a hard-fought 2-1 home win against promoted Bromley on the Monday.

BT Sport’s superb new highlights programme on Sunday night showed Keanu Marsh-Brown’s well-taken opening goal and then veteran Jon Parkin’s neat finish that eventually saw off Harriers.

Eastleigh and Cheltenham Town are the other sides yet to taste defeat in the new season to date, and they also both won their holiday  fixtures.

Richard Hill’s Spitfires beat Aldershot Town and then Torquay over the holiday and certainly look as though they’re going to be a force to be reckoned with.

The Robins won impressively 3-0 at Torquay United before inflicting a 2-1 defeat on Wrexham on Monday in the first live game of the season on BT Sport.

This proved to be another excellent advert for the competition with the Dragons, having been so impressive on Saturday when beating FC Halifax Town, proving a stern test for Gary Johnson’s men.

Southport finally got their first win on the board, beating Altrincham 3-0 at home – only the visitors’ second defeat, but they have drawn their other five matches.

The transfer window shut on Tuesday at 6pm and it was one of the quietest on record for National League clubs.

FC Halifax brought in a couple of youngsters on loan from Sheffield United in CJ Hamilton and David Brooks, while injury-hit Woking took Terell Thomas for a month from Charlton.

But there was no flurry of late action in the transfer market – former Gainsborough Trinity winger Terry Hawkridge’s loan move to Lincoln City being one of the few made just before the
window shut.
