THURROCK, Aveley, Tilbury and Grays Athletic were all condemned to defeats.

Fleet lost to Dulwich Hamlet in the Isthmian Premier League, while Aveley, Tilbury and Grays were seen off by Maldon & Tiptree, Heybridge Swifts and Cheshunt respectively in the Isthmian North.

Mark Stimson’s Thurrock suffered a 2-1 reverse to Dulwich Hamlet.

Ashley Carew gave Dulwich a 27th minute lead in front of more than 1,000 spectators.

Carew’s impressive free-kick at Tooting & Mitcham United’s KNK Stadium wrongfooted Thurrock goalkeeper Ben McNamara and found the bottom corner of the net.

However, Fleet were to get back on level terms three minutes after the break from the penalty spot.

Nyren Clunis brought down Joel Nouble and Jordan Clark sent former Grays goalkeeper Amadou Tangara the wrong way with the resulting spot kick.

But Dulwich were not to be denied all three points as their quest for promotion continues.

Following a goalmouth scramble – with 11 minutes to play – Nathan Green headed home.

Meanwhile, Aveley were condemned to a 5-0 loss by play-off chasing Maldon & Tiptree.

James Webster’s charges fell behind inside 16 minutes, when Chris Millar found a way past Millers custodian Rhys Madden.

Eoin McKeown doubled the Jammers’ advantage at Parkside, while the frontman added to his tally two minutes later after latching onto a Lee Barnard flick-on.

Maldon & Tiptree moved into a four-goal lead just before the interval as Barnard found the top corner of the net from the penalty spot.

McKeown completed the scoring and his hat-trick to round off a day to forget for Aveley.

A last minute goal resulted in Tilbury losing 2-1 at high-flying Heybridge Swifts.

Kreshnic Krasniqi sent a 62nd minute penalty to Dockers goalkeeper Clarke Bogard’s left to break the deadlock.

But Joe Keith’s side thought they had snatched a share of the spoils when Albert Keith equalised with just three minutes to play at the Aspen Waite Arena.

However, Heybridge were to score a late winner as Ryan Henshaw headed home after Bogard failed to claim Jack Cawley’s long throw-in.

Grays Athletic were seen off by Cheshunt, who were 1-0 winners.

Kyle Roberts scored what proved to be the only goal of the game on 69 minutes.

And Grays ended the Isthmian North encounter with 10 men as Joao Carlos saw red late on.
