Trojans gave Winchester’s survival hopes a helping hand with a 4-3 win at South League Premier Division relegation rivals Tunbridge Wells.
But Winchester themselves remain in the bottom two after a 3-2 home defeat by Wycombe, Ben Hibberd and Harry Trussler on target for the city club.
Elliott Cole, Dan Ferrier, Colin French and Ben Frost struck for Trojans in Kent.
Bournemouth’s hopes of pushing for a Premier West 1 promotion hopes disappeared with four defeats post Christmas, but they were on target on Thames side, hitting relegated Richmond II for six.
Twenty-one goal Conor Moors remained on course to finish as the West top scorer with a brace, while Charlie Cooper, Hugo Creaney-Birch, Freddie Hares and Ross Hattemore were also on target in the lions’ 6-2 win.
