Remi Garrett bagged a brace — including a brilliant second — as Bury Town defeated Billericay Town to preserve their unbeaten home run in the Ryman League Premier Division.
His flicked header was deflected in to put the Blues 1-0 ahead and he doubled their advantage by crashing home a volley from a tight angle.
Billericay had their chances — Marcus Garnham made a superb save from Seedy Njie and Steve Sheehan headed against the crossbar — but they ran out of ideas as Bury’s defence got on top during the second half.
Ricky Sappleton finally headed in a consolation in the fourth minute of stoppage time, but it was too little, too late.
Needham Market came from behind to stretch their lead at the top of Ryman One North with a 3-1 triumph at Soham Town Rangers.
Luke Stanley put Soham ahead in the second minute, but Sam Newson equalised within 120 seconds.
Luke Ingram put the Marketmen ahead with 20 minutes to go before Soham had a man sent off and Newson completed the victory four minutes from time.
