Non-league midweek round-up: Ravens climb again as Marriott double earns win at Boreham Wood

Adam Marriott scored twice as Bromley extended their unbeaten run in the National League to four matches with a 2-0 win at Boreham Wood on Tuesday.

The result moves the Ravens up to fourth in the table and just four points behind pacesetters Notts County.

Marriott slid the ball home in the 31st minute following Michael Cheek’s approach play.

And the striker added a second just past the hour mark, tapping in after Cheek’s header came back off the right post.

Marriott moved on to six goals for the campaign.

“He’s a good finisher – that’s why I put him in the team today,” said Bromley manager Andy Woodman. “Young George Alexander got left out and he scored Saturday.

Marriott is a goalscorer and it’s taken a little bit of pressure off Cheeky, it’s a nice luxury to have.

“We look a good team at the moment and also that we’ve got a lot of togetherness about us.”

Bromley are at home against Gateshead on Saturday.

“We’ll just keep taking care of our own business,” said Woodman. “We need to be careful with the boys because they are pushing at their max, their numbers are through the roof.

“But they ain’t getting any time off, that’s for sure! I’m going to keep working them, because it’s still early in the season and we’ve achieved nothing yet.”

Fisher’s SCEFL Premier Division woes deepened as they lost 2-0 at Stansfeld on Tuesday to remain rock bottom of the table.
Bermondsey Town suffered a 4-1 home defeat to Bridon Ropes in the SCEFL First Division.

Jeremiah Afamefune had put the hosts into a first-minute lead. Four goals in 25 second-half minutes earned their Charlton-based opponents maximum points.

Eddie Mbango’s 60th-minute goal ensured Tooting & Mitcham drew 1-1 with South Park on Saturday.

Ethan Ford had put the visitors in front in the first half.

The Terrors are winless in their last four matches in all competitions. They do not have a fixture this weekend.
