The Place To Go For A Stump Galore – Isthmian League


Table-toppers, Worthing, have scored a stunning 49 goals in twenty league games, playing ruthless, front-foot, attacking football. They have shown vulnerability at the back, conceding 31 goals, however, their ability to outscore teams allows for a few defensive errors. Despite being lead leaders, Worthing have only kept a few clean sheets, with the occasional 3-4 goals being conceded. Either way, you are guaranteed quality, entertaining football.


Lewes have been at the heart of many goals having scored a total of 48 league goals and conceding 32. Producers of one of the most entertaining matches the season has seen. A 9 goal thriller against league leaders, Worthing. The Rooks are yet to have a goalless game, assuring an absolute goal-fest.


Eighteenth in the league, Wingate & Finchley have conceded 42 goals whilst scoring only 29. Their negative goal difference may be a disappointment to their fans, but it does give the audience a hand-in-the-mouth experience. Stress, tension, drama, and in the end mostly defeat, but at least it won’t bore you. With only one clean sheet all season, Wingate & Finchley definitely provide goals, their highest-scoring game being an 8-goal win against Cray Wanderers. 


22 goals scored and 48 conceded. It’s been a nightmare of a season for East Thurrock, losing more games than a combination of wins and draws. They’ve conceded 4, 5, 6, and even 8 goals in a single match. However, opposing their horrendous start, United have shown some improvement coming towards Christmas, having kept a clean sheet in their most recent fixture against Kingstonian. If this was due to improved coaching, good on East Thurrock, if it was just a fluke, good on neutrals.


To no surprise, the team sitting bottom of the league has conceded the most goals – a shocking 55. That explains why they’ve won 3 games and lost 15, suffering two six and seven nil defeats! They may fail to get 3 points, but they never fail to entertain. The Tanners on their day can win 5-0 or even lose 5-0. Their instability makes them completely unpredictable, but it does guarantee a game worth the watch.


Brightlingsea Regent, third from the bottom, highest scoring in the league (50). If you want to watch football at the speed and intensity of a basketball game, this is the place to be. Not only do they score unlimitedly, but they also concede many too (32), with two consecutive 6 goal defeats and two consecutive 5 goal defeats. Sometimes their attack doesn’t turn up and sometimes their defence doesn’t turn up.


Merstham have been all over the place since the beginning of the season, conceding more goals (36) than scoring (30). They’re fifteenth in the league but lack any sort of flow or momentum, with performances being completely unpredictable. They could score 5 or concede 5 and it would be a standard result. You never know which side will turn up, but what you do know is that it will be full of excitement and goals.


Potters Bar Town have conceded as many goals (33) as they have scored (34), hence their mid-table position. Famous for producing some very entertaining matches, Potters have been included in a 7-goal thriller, two 6-thrillers, a 5-goal thriller, and SIX 4-goal thrillers. With a fierce attack and a leaky defence, Potters Bar Town will continue to produce such entertaining fixtures until their defensive howlers are not dealt with.
