With the club on the fringes of promotion to the Blue Square South, Aveley are a club with the future clearly in mind. With the help of the ever resourceful Veoila Mardyke Trust, a new stand has been erected.
These are the vital building blocks that help the club as it develops its profile, not only in the league but also in the community. That is why a club such as Aveley are delighted to have such a good relationship with Veoila as are many clubs and organisations in the area.
Chair Charlie Curtis opened the stand. YourThurrock spoke to a delighted club secretary Craig Johnston. That was before the team went on to lose 4-3!
