Local derby highlight of FA Cup draw

THE FA Cup has produced another derby game at Mill Field where Grays Athletic, having beaten Romford on Sunday, will play host to Tilbury – perhaps their oldest and fiercest rivals.

The match is likely to take place on Sunday 29 September, as Grays’ landlords, Aveley, are at home in the league on the Saturday.

The winners of tomorrow evening’s replay at Rookery Hill, between East Thurrock United and AFC Hornchurch will be a trip to United Counties League Spalding United.

Thurrock, giantkillers against Bury Town at the weekend, may feel an away trip to either Hitchen Town or Arlesey Town is poor reward for their efforts.
