Non-league round-up: Bromley up to third in National League as Dulwich win at Wingate & Finchley

Bromley moved up to third in the National League table after a last-gasp 2-1 win over Dorking Wanderers at Hayes Lane on Tuesday evening.

Tom Blair put the visitors 1-0 up after six minutes but Charlton loanee Deji Elerewe bagged his first goal since returning to the Ravens on loan shortly afterwards.

Corey Whiteley scored in the 95th minute with a long-range effort to make it just one defeat in the last 15 outings in the fifth tier for Andy Woodman’s side.

“It’s always nice to get a last-second winner,” Woodman told Bromley’s YouTube channel. “It summed us up as a football club really – my players and staff just don’t stop going. They are relentless.

“I know people get frustrated when the other team has the ball, but they’re not going anywhere – they’re not hurting us. We could do that, but it would be boring to watch. The goal was a mistake, but Joshua Passley has held his hands up and his team have dug him out.

“That’s the team culture and spirit I want here – if someone has a bad day, the rest of the group dig them out of the whole.”

Dulwich Hamlet recorded back-to-back victories in the Isthmian League Premier Division after winning 3-2 at Wingate & Finchley on Tuesday evening.

Goals from Adrian Clifton, Ryley Scott and Luke Wanadio gave Hakan Hayrettin’s side all three points as they moved up to 15th in the table. Hamlet are unbeaten in their last three league outings.

Welling United stayed 23rd in the National League South table after a goalless draw at home to Maidstone United. The Wings are winless in their previous seven league outings.

“It should have been all three,” said Welling boss Danny Bloor. “We hit the post. But what is really encouraging is that they’re a full-time side – like our last two opponents – and we finished the stronger side.

“If it went on for another five minutes, we may well have got a winner.

“I’m satisfied with the point and I’m satisfied with the style of football we played.”
