The Rams faced the long trek to the East Sussex coast to face the 10th-place Hastings United (in what would have been the last midweek away game until the cancellation of the trip to Chipstead last Saturday, which has now been rescheduled for 28 February), but returned with all 3 points seeing them leap up the table 4 spaces to 16th.
As expected it was a debut for 17 year old Sam Lawford who has joined the Rams on work experience from Gillingham, starting in the #10 shirt and getting in a full hour.
The Rams took the lead in the 37th minute through Aaron Millbank, to go into the interval with the advantage, but Hastings substitute Harry Stannard equalised in the 66th minute, just 7 minutes after his introduction. Ramsgate kept pushing however and Alfie Paxman made sure of the Rams' win 5 minutes later.
Ramsgate are at home to Lewes on Saturday, the Rooks currently in 6th spot, so it will be another hard battle (kickoff is at 3pm on the 21st)
