Below are the contenders:

1. Merstham 0 Faversham Town 2 (Josh Stanford and Jamie Maxted) – 16th August 2014.

Match report here.

Match video here.

The Lilywhites bagged their first away victory of the 2014/15 Ryman South season with a solid 2-0 win over a strong Merstham side and put down an early marker of their promotion credentials.

2. Faversham Town 2 (Jamie Maxted and Wayne Wilson pen) Westfield 1 – 30th August 2014.

Match report here.

Jamie Maxted proved to be the Faversham Town hero in a dramatic match at the Shepherd Neame Stadium. The visitors broke the deadlock against the run of play on the 24th minute and the hosts looked to be about to head out of the F.A Cup in this Preliminary Round clash until substitute Maxted smashed in an astonishing goal with 30 seconds of normal time left. Then, in stoppage-time, Wayne Wilson sealed a late comeback for the Lilywhites from the penalty spot.

3. Leatherhead 1 Faversham Town 2 (David Botterill and Jack Harris) – 13th September 2014.

Match report here.

Match video here.

Faversham Town produced a resolute defensive display to beat Ryman Premier League side Leatherhead 2-1 and progress to the FA Cup Second Qualifying Round. The visitors got off to a dream start when David Botterill scored inside a minute. However, the hosts drew level on the 28th minute through Vas Karagannis’s free-kick. After this, the home team took control for the best part of the final hour – and at times – the match resembled an attack vs defence training session, such was the Tanners dominance. Though, Leatherhead failed to breach the Town defence again and the Kent side grabbed the victory with a sublime Jack Harris volley.

4. Whyteleafe 2 Faversham Town 2 (George Monger and Josh Stanford) – 20th September 2014.

Match report here.

Match video here.

Faversham Town and Whyteleafe both bagged a deserved point at the end of an exciting seesaw match. The hosts drew first blood on the half hour mark when Greg Andrews shot past away goalkeeper Simon Overland to break the deadlock. The Lilywhites responded well at the start of the second half and midfielder George Monger picked up his second goal in as many fixtures. Town did look to have sealed a win with eight minutes left, as Josh Stanford found the net, only for Roscoe DSane to equalise two minutes later for the home side.

5. Dover Athletic 2 Faversham Town 1 (Dean Grant) – 14th October 2014.

Match report here.

Two goals from Stefan Payne allowed Dover Athletic to edge past Faversham Town, despite a strong performance from the Lilywhites. The hosts took a deserved lead on 9 minutes after an excellent start when Payne found the net. The away team improved significantly in the second half. It came as little surprise when the visitors did draw level on 77 minutes through Dean Grant’s left-footed effort. However, three minutes later, the hosts scored what proved to be the decisive goal of the match. Referee Mr Aji Ajibola awarded a penalty for a foul on Payne and the former Gillingham man converted the spot-kick to send the home side into the Second Round of the Kent Senior Cup.

6. Three Bridges 1 Faversham Town 4 (Jack Harris x 4) – 21st October 2014.

Match report here.

Match video here.

Jack Harris marked his first Faversham start in over a month in style, as he grabbed all four of Town’s goals in their 4-1 win over Three Bridges. The first half came to life on the 42nd minute when Referee Mr Michael Hayden sent-off Jamie Maxted for a second bookable offence after an off-the-ball incident. However, the visitors led at the break. Maidstone United loanee striker Harris found the net. Harris netted his second, four minutes after the restart. The hosts pulled a goal back on 53 minutes. The Bridges then pushed for an equaliser, although, Faversham weathered the storm. Home defender John Lansdale also saw red five minutes from time. Then in stoppage-time, Harris completed his hat-trick, before a fourth quickly followed.

7. Faversham Town 5 (Renford Tenyue, Dean Grant, Jack Harris X 2 and Matthew Bourne) Walton & Hersham 0 – 4th November 2014.

Match report here.

Match video here.

Faversham Town moved top of the Ryman South table with a perfect performance in their 5-0 win over Walton & Hersham. The Lilywhites started the scoring on the 16th minute with Renford Tenyue’s looping header. Three minutes before the break, Dean Grant added a second for Faversham. The hosts sealed the victory just before the hour mark when Ashley Brown fed Jack Harris, who beat the away defence and found the net. Centre-back Matthew Bourne powered home a fourth, as he headed in a Wayne Wilson corner. Then, towards the end of normal time, Harris leathered in his second and the team’s fifth to seal the Lilywhite’s place at the Ryman South summit in style.

8. Faversham Town 2 (Sam Bewick and Josh Stanford) Folkestone Invicta 2 – 29th November 2014.

Match report here.

Match video here.

Faversham Town played out an entertaining draw with Folkestone Invicta in a high quality Kent derby. The visitors began well and broke the deadlock on the 23rd minute when striker Ian Draycott beat the on-rushing home goalkeeper Simon Overland to a through ball. The Lilywhites hit back just after the half hour mark in spectacular fashion, as David Botterill played in Sam Bewick, whose left-footed volley flew past visiting keeper Tim Roberts. Folkestone retook the lead five minutes after the restart. Referee Mr Pullen awarded a controversial penalty with Paul Booth finding the net. However, substitute Josh Stanford ensured Faversham got a share of the spoils with a superb long-range strike with 12 minutes left to play.

9. Herne Bay 1 Faversham Town 3 (Jamie Maxted, Aidan Sherlock and Sam Bewick) – 1st January 2015.

Match report here.

Faversham Town began 2015 with a hard-fought victory over Herne Bay. The Lilywhites broke the deadlock on the 14th minute when Jamie Maxted scored against his former club. Steven Ita did grab a controversial leveller for the hosts in the second half. The visitors responded and retook the lead in the first minute of stoppage-time. Captain Wayne Wilson’s corner was scrambled over the line by defender Aidan Sherlock. Then, substitute Sam Bewick sealed the win with a spectacular long-range effort in the final moments.

10. Guernsey 0 Faversham Town 2 (Dean Grant and Wayne Wilson) – 7th March 2015.

Match report here.

Match pictures, courtesy of Andy Dovey photography, are available from here.

Faversham Town produced a sensational team performance to beat Guernsey 2-0, which tightened their grip on second place in the Ryman South League Table. The Lilywhites finally took a deserved lead on the 54th minute, as Dean Grant sprung the offside trap and calmly slotted past the impressive Green Lions goalkeeper Chris Tardif, without whom the score line could have easily been far more convincing. The visitors extended their advantage with 66 minutes on the clock through captain Wayne Wilson’s shot after excellent work by Grant and midfielder Charley Robertson.

11. Faversham Town 5 (Wayne Wilson X 2, John Scarborough, Stuart King and Jack Harris) Carshalton Athletic 0 – 24th March 2015.

Match report here.

Match video here.

Faversham Town roared past 100 Ryman South league goals for the season in a second-half domination, on their way to a 5-0 win over Carshalton Athletic. The visitors looked to have shaded an evenly contested first period but fell behind on the 27th minute. Midfielder Wayne Wilson scored his 20th competitive goal of the season from the penalty spot. Wilson turned provider shortly after the restart, as his corner was flicked in by defender John Scarborough for his first ever competitive goal for the home side. The Lilywhites reached a century of league goals on the hour mark with Stuart King opening his account for the club. Referee Mr Butler again awarded the hosts a penalty for a foul on midfielder Robertson, 19, which was converted by Wilson. Whilst, striker Jack Harris completed the scoring with a thunderous finish.

12. Faversham Town 5 (Wayne Wilson X 2, David Botterill, Jamie Maxted and Stuart King) Walton Casuals 1 – 25th April 2015.

Match report and pictures here.

Match video here.

The hosts fell behind early at the Shepherd Neame Stadium when Billy Dunn found the net. But, Faversham drew level in first-half stoppage-time through a Wayne Wilson free-kick. The home team then took the lead just after the break through David Botterill’s deflected volley, before two quick fire goals from Wilson and Jamie Maxted followed. Stuart King completed the scoring for Ray Turner’s men on the 78th minute after a beautiful substitute Bradley Webb cross following a Botterill penalty miss, which denied him a double of doubles against the Stags this season.
