BATH City recorded the weekend's most impressive result with a 5-1 hammering of Bishop's Stortford at Woodside Park.

First half goals from Adam Connolly and David Edwards set the Romans on their way and despite Charlie Sheringham pulling a goal back, they were never in trouble. Edwards grabbed a second and Lewis Hogg scored a delightful free kick. Stortford's afternoon was made even worse as Sheringham missed a penalty and shortly after the former Welling man missed a sitter. Bath concluded the scoring late on when Kaid Mohammed rounded goalkeeper Ed Thompson and added a fifth.

Dover's unbeaten start to the season was brought to an end at Westleigh Park as two goals from the league's top scorer Manny Williams gave Havant & Waterlooville a 2-1 win.

Craig Reid was on target twice as Newport County won 2-0 at Welling United and George Purcell scored twice as Braintree won 2-1 at Weston-super-Mare.

Steve Claridge came out of retirement at the age of 43 to help Weymouth but he couldn't stop them from losing 5-1 at home to Bromley.

Thurrock continue to surprise, this time winning 2-0 at Maidenhead United while Worcester picked up their first win of the season with a 4-0 thrashing of Dorchester.

Eastleigh had to settle for a 0-0 draw at home to Staines while Lewes were held to a 0-0 draw at home by Basingstoke.
