Not a great weekend for the under/over predictor with only one winning bet from three. As it stands at the moment on a £1 stake the system is running at £12.00 out and £11.09 returns so a loss of 91p.

The next set of Vanarama fixtures comes on Saturday 27th September.

RYMAN PREMIER DIVISION DRAW PREDICTOR
RECORD SO FAR red denotes correct
DATE SELECTION RATING ODDS RESULT
6th September LEISTON v MET POLICE  5 5/2 1-1
20th September MET POLICE v BURY   7 5/2 4-1

For the Ryman Premier draw predictor it was a losing weekend too with Met Police beating Bury Town 4-1. The other selection was Witham Town v Kingstonian which was postponed due to a waterlogged pitch.

For the midweek fixtures coming up there is one fixture which qualifies which selects the Met Police (10th position) who entertain Bognor Regis Town (17th) which is rated as 5. Met have 3 draws in their last 6 games with The Rocks at 2/6. A draw is best priced at 13/5.

For the big 2nd v 1st top of table clash between Margate and Maidstone United the bookmakers rate The Gate at 20/19 with The Stones at 21/10 and a draw at 13/5.

Please remember to gamble responsibly.

16 HERTFORD HEATH 7 0 1 6 3 26 -23 1 0.00

The Hertsavers Hertfordshire Senior County League Premier Division 2014/15 season is now well under with every team playing seven games aside from Standon & Puckeridge and Cuffley. Standon are one of two teams without a win and if it's goals you want they are definitely worth a watch this season with an average of nearly 7 goals per game at the moment. They were involved in a 6-6 draw with Bushey Sports Club on Saturday 6th September. Hertford Heath are the other side without a victory and they have only scored three goals in their seven games - Their only point gained came in the 1-1 draw with Sarratt last Saturday.

At the top end of the division it's Belstone (last season's runner's up) that currently head the division with six wins in seven games. Last season's Division One champion's Hatfield Social are in second place and they are the only side without a defeat winning five and drawing two of their seven games. It's first v second at The Medburn Ground this coming Saturday when Social's unbeaten record will be sternly tested.

Bedmond Sports record in fifth place is an interesting one as their goal's conceded record reads 20 which is the fourth worst in the division. This is down to their 12-0 defeat at Whitwell (see report and highlights here) in August which they followed up with a 1-0 home victory over Belstone (the league leader's only defeat so far).

Goals conceded chart for season so far
 
Another interesting statistic is that Sandridge Rovers (third from bottom) have the seventh best defensive record conceded just ten goals of which three came in their 3-3 draw with Hatfield Social who have only let in five goals so far.

MERSON AND WILSHERE IN TOP THREE OF LEAGUE'S TOP SCORERS 

The Premier Division top scorer's chart is headed by Letchworth's Sam Gittings on eleven goals followed by Tom Wilshere of Whitwell on eight. Ben Merson of Wormley Rovers is next on six goals followed by a clutch of players of five goals

The league's Aubery Cup starts on Saturday 27th September which is competed for by teams from both divisions and is looked forward to by every team in the league. Last season Premier Division Standon and Puckeridge won 4-0 against Divison One side Evergreen.

Hertford Heath v Lemsford
Bedmond Sports v Sarratt
AFC Hatfield v Knebworth
Saturday 11th October
Whitwell v Old Parmiterians
Saturday 18th October
Belstone v Broadfields
 
The game between Whitwell and Division One Old Parmiterians should be a good one as OP have won all four of their league games so far including a 11-1 and a 7-3 in their last two games.

THE COLD END WINLESS LEAGUE

We are down an unlucky thirteen teams in the winless league which tracks the teams from Step 1 to Step 6 on the non-league ladder. Just one team remains from the first four steps in the pyramid being Walton Casuals who have played nine Ryman Division One (South) games and lost all nine scoring just six goals. Their next game comes away at Redhill on Saturday. Casual's manager Mark Hams has signed four players over the past week to put a halt to the terrible run they are on. 18 year old Kieran Scantlebury, 19 year old Bode Anidugbe and 18 year old Ebrima Adams have all joined from Vanarama Comference side Dartford along with 23 year old striker Myles Stephenson who joins from Vanarama South side Hayes and Yeading United. Could it be tenth time lucky for The Cauals at Redhill?

Ampthill Town and Seaford Town have the worst scoring record hitting the next only twice in their games. Totton and Eling have the worst defensive record letting in thirty-seven goals in just nine league games.

Ryan Moss has continued on for his new side as he was doing for Kingstonian last season. He scored 25 goals for The K's last campaign. Ex Gillingham and Notts County midfielder Charlie Allen follows with a group of five other players on seven goals including David Knight of Wingate and Finchley and Billy Medlock of Tonbrdige Angels. Both Knight and Medlock were summer signings from teams playing at Step 4 of the non-league ladder which proves if players are given a chance they can be fantastic acquisitions for clubs higher up the pyramid. 

Medlock scored 30 goals for Ryman Division One (South) side Eastbourne Town during the 2013/14 season. This achievement reads better when you see Eastbourne Town finished bottom of the table. 

Kinght scored 37 goals for Ryman Division One (North) side Thurrock last season and has also played for Aveley, Billericay Town and East Thurrock United in the past. 

Enfield Town's Corey Whitley and Leiston's Gareth Heath follow on six goals.

RYAN IMBERT ROMFORD 6
TYRUS GORDON-YOUNG THAMESMEAD TOWN  6

There is no surpise to see Alex Read 'the goal machine' top of the early Division One (North) scoring charts. He scored an amazing 52 goals in the league and cup for The Hawks last season. He is followed by Ade Yusuff of Chatham Town who signed for the Kent side from Aveley in November 2013 and has also played for AFC Hornchurch, Stevenage, Banbury United and St Neots Town in his career. Ex Redbridge player Keiran Bishop has scored six times for Ware as has Luke Stanley. Ryan Imbert and Tyrus Gordon-Young.

Stanley signed for Soham Town Rangers from Kershaw Cambridgeshire League side Linton Granta in November 2012 and was top scorer for the club in 2013/14 with forty goals. Ex Thurrock striker Ryan Imbert has had a great start to the season with Romford as has Tyrus Gordon-Young of Thamesmead Town.

With eleven and ten games played already there looks to be only two teams in the race for the title in the Ryman Premier Division. Hendon are the team currently in third place on twenty-one games form eleven games played followed by Dulwich Hamlet who also played eleven times currently on twenty points.

An good indictator as to which team is likely to finish top is by looking at the average points per game of Maidstone United at 2.73, Margate at 2.50, Hendon at 1.91 and Dulwich Hamlet at 1.82. The average points per game to win the division over the past five seasons is 2.10. The two club's win percentages of 90.91% and 80.00% is way above that of the previous champions over the last four seasons.

Maidstone United's only blemish on their league record so far is the 1-0 away defeat at Tonbridge Angels on Bank Holiday Monday 25th August. On Tuesday evening Harrow Borough came within touching distance of getting something from their game at The Gallagher Stadium when with only around ten minutes to go they were 0-1 up thanks to a goal from Daniel May. However goals from Alex Flisher (79th minute) and Frannie Collin in the 90th minute sealed a 2-1 win for The Stones.

Margate have drawn at home to Leiston (Saturday 30th August) and lost away at Dulwich Hamlet (Tuesday 2nd September) and won the other eight of their ten league games so far. They took two games to get past Division One (South) side Folkestone Invicta in the FA Cup Qualifying Round (0-0 on Saturday followed by a 3-1 home replay win on Tuesday evening) whilst Maidstone United thrashed Sussex County Division One side Littlehampton Town 10-0 in their cup game.

This weekend Maidstone travel to Lewes and Margate are at home to Canvey Island before on Tuesday 23rd September all eyes will be on Hartsdown Park as the two title rivals clash before their 2nd Qualifying Round FA Cup games on Saturday 27th September. Should Maidstone United win the game at Margate they may find themselves (pending the results from the weekend) eight points clear at the top of the table albeit with Margate having a game in hand. There is certainly many games to play yet and it's looking to be a really exciting season for fans of both clubs.

The bookmakers currently rate Margate odds on at 4/9 with Maidstone United at 9/4 for the title. There is a massive gap then to Kingstonian at 22/1 and Dulwich Hamlet at 25/1.
