Non-league round-up: Former Crystal Palace and Leeds winger Hall scores after 2.31 seconds

Former Crystal Palace youngster Ryan Hall scored straight from kick-off in Croydon FC’s 3-0 London Senior Cup win over Cockfosters on Saturday.

The official timing of the goal going in was clocked at 2.31 seconds but Guinness World Records could not confirm that it was an official record for the fastest goal scored from kick-off.

“As the whistle went, I just thought ‘I’m going to go for it,” Hall, who also played for Leeds United, Southend and Bromley, told BBC Radio 5Live.

“No way did I actually think I would pull this off. When I saw it go over the keeper’s head, I thought ‘I have actually done this’.”

Bromley drew 2-2 with Dagenham & Redbridge on Tuesday evening.

Andy Woodman’s side took the lead through Besart Topalloj with Michael Cheek doubling the Ravens’ advantage in first-half added time.

But a goal from Sam Ling in the 70th minute and an equaliser from Josh Rees in the 95th minute denied Bromley all three points.

They stay second in the National League – 19 points behind runaway leaders Chesterfield.

Dulwich Hamlet kept up their chase in the race to claim a spot in the Isthmian League Premier Division play-off places after a 2-1 win at Concord Rangers on Saturday.

Welling United gave their National League South survival hopes a massive boost on Tuesday night with an impressive 4-1 win over second-placed Worthing at Park View Road.

Their goals were scored by Sonny Fish (two), Anthony Grant and Reece Grant to moved the Wings, unbeaten in their last five league matches, within a point of safety.

Cray Valley PM went top of the Isthmian League South East Division after a 4-1 win at Burgess Town Hill.
