MANY people thought that Tilbury were destined to go down last year. It was the first time boss Paul Vaughan had taken the step up from youth football to the semi-pro leagues. It is hard in those circumstances to assert oneself or get the lay of the land.
But Paul’s Tilbury did survive and had some good wins on the way especially a smash and grab win against rivals Grays Ath at new year.
So, what are the ambitions for the Dockers this season. YT went down to Chadfields to see them take on East Thurrock in a pre-season friendly and interview the ever-affable boss.
