Holders Sutton Athletic began their defence of the Kent Invicta League Challenge Trophy with a 4-0 victory over Crockenhill at Wested Meadow. Arlie Desagnes put them ahead in the 38th minute and then three goals in an eight minute second-half spell from Jack Howlett and Aiden Pursglove (2) saw them through to Round Two.
Two extra-time goals from Quinten Conteh and Todd secured Glebe a 3-1 win over Seven Acre & Sidcup at Oakley Road. Jai Nuttall put the home side ahead but Jamie Williams levelled matters just before the break. At the Ladywell Arena the scoreline between Lewisham Borough and Bridon Ropes remained goalless after extra-time but Ben Kotey's Boro' won 4-1 on penalties.
Marcus Heddon (2) and Joe Degnin were on target as Gravesham Borough beat Rusthall at Jockey Farm where the Rustics scorers were Stuart Hunter and Bobby Dixey. A single goal from Mark Wallis on the hour proved enough for Lydd Town to beat Eltham Palace at the Lindsey Field while a Matt Garner hat-trick helped Bearsted to a 3-1 triumph over Orpington at Green Court Road, Adam Steward netting for the O's.
Comeback of the day came from Kevin Hake's Sheppey United who scored three times in the final five minutes to knock Meridian VP out at Charlton Park Lane. Richard Whyte and Dominic Elmes had put Richard Dimmock's side two-up with just 17 minutes on the clock but Kenlan Mooney and Dan Bradshaw (2) stole the win.
The biggest win of the day came at the Glentworth Sports Ground where visitors Hollands & Blair returned to winning ways with a comprehensive 9-0 annihilation of struggling Kent Football United.
Seven different players got on the scoresheet, James McDonald (2), Rob Denness (2), Fraser Rogers, Lewis Taylor, Stuart West, Bryan Greenfield and Sam Reece Prescott.
