Bostik Premier: Merstham 3 Wingate & Finchely 0

Wingate & Finchley dropped into the Bostik Premier bottom three after they lost 3-0 away to Merstham on Saturday.

The Blues went into the contest following back-to-back league defeats and were not able to halt the slide in Surrey.

After an even start, Merstham made the crucial breakthrough in the 25th minute thanks to Kershaney Samuels.

Roman Michael-Percil broke down the left and found Samuels, who placed into the far corner midway through the half.

Tom Kavanagh’s lob deflected onto the crossbar and Figueira was on hand to tap in from close range.
