A round up of how the Wanderers teams got on over the weekend plus new updates...
First Team Defeated By The Dragons...
The Wanderers first team were consigned to a third straight league defeat on Saturday after suffering a 0-5 loss at the hands of promotion favourites Wrexham. For the side from Wales it would be a fourth straight win, with an Ollie Palmer brace, own goal, Jacob Mendy strike and Elliot Lee tap-in rounding out a clinical display for Phil Parkinson's side in front of a packed out crowd at Meadowbank. Wanderers afternoon was compounded by the loss of Ed Harris early on in the contest to a head injury, and later in the game as Alfie Rutherford went down and had to be stretchered off after an innocuous clash running towards the penalty area. It is feared the striker has possibly suffered a dislocated knee, a massive blow to Alfie and we him all the best with his recovery. It will be more frustrating news for Marc White who also has to contend with ongoing injuries to Isaac Philpot, Josh Taylor and Jimmy Muitt as well at this time. One positive from Saturday's game was captain Barry Fuller making his first appearance of the season after being ruled out with injury since the final game of pre-season.
Next up for the Wanderers first team is a trip to Halifax Town this coming Saturday afternoon as league action continues.
Ahead of Saturday's game James McShane was presented with the player of the month award for August, Gary Pascoe caught up with the Wanderers midfielder earlier that day, check out the interview here:

Another Point On The Road For The B Team...
Rhys Barker's Wanderers B team followed up a positive Bank Holiday Weekend with another well earned point away from home as they drew 2-2 with Seaford Town. Going behind to a very early goal scored in the 4th minute, a looping volley from Sekou Toure pulled the score level at the midway point of the half. The hosts got back in front not long before the interval, but after the restart Joshua Bohui skilfully set up Jack Saunders inside the box, and the midfielder guided the ball home to ensure the spoils were shared. On another afternoon it could have been all three points returning to Surrey as Wanderers also missed a penalty in the second half.
As September get's under way the B team currently sit in 10th spot in the league after six games played, winning two, drawing two and losing two so far. Sekou Toure is the joint 3rd highest scorer in the league with 4 goals so far.
The B team make a swift return to action on Tuesday evening as they travel to Godalming Town in the first round of the Peter Bentley Challenge Cup. Halisham Town are then the visitors to Meadowbank on Saturday afternoon in as league action resumes.
Emphatic Win For The Ladies In 'El Clasimole'...
Another clinical display from the Wanderers Ladies saw off local rivals Leatherhead on Sunday afternoon, a resounding 7-0 win making that three wins in three now to start the new campaign. Summer signing Cherelle Khassel continued her excellent early form in front of goal with another hat-trick, taking her tally so far to 9, on an afternoon where Katie Butts also contributed a brace and further goals were scored by Gemma Shepherd and Xayla, who's brilliant free kick from 30 yards out was the goal of the game .
The Ladies take a break from league action next Sunday as they welcome Richmond & Kew to Meadowbank in the FA Cup for a 15:30pm kick off. Next weekend is also the weekend the much anticipated BBC Three documentary following Callum Best and the Ladies team over the past year is released, showing at 8pm on Sunday September 11th and available on the BBC iPlayer.
