East Thurrock United are promoted.
The Rocks ran out 3-0 winners at Redbridge this afternoon securing promotion and the title of Ryman Div One North champions.
It was no more than they deserved. Throughout the season, East Thurrock, under the guidance of one of the nicest men you could hope to meet, John Coventry, have played wonderfully positive football.
They have timed the season to perfection, moving up on the rails a few months ago before stretching away. It hasn’t been champagne football over the last two months but all that mattered was the champagne that flowed when the whistle blew.
As you will see from our film, the team were quite pleased at being promoted and promoted as champions.
