Hastings Town 3-2 Herne Bay

A penalty from player-of-the-match Rubie Harris was the difference in this five-goal thriller at the Pilot Field.

Hastings, looking to end the season and bid farewell to manager Billy Wood with a win raced to a 2-0 lead inside the opening fifteen minutes before being pegged back after halftime. Both sides had plenty of chances in an end-to-end encounter, but it was Harris’s penalty that was decisive.

United finish the season in second, just missing out on promotion, with Herne Bay ending in fifth place.
