Football: Grays humbled by rampant Leiston (again)

FA Cup 1st Qualifying Round

Leiston 4 v 1 Grays Athletic

IF there is one team that you do not want to take on jus enow then it is high-flying Leiston.

Unfortunately for Grays Ath, the have had to take them on twice in a couple of weeks.

They will no doubt put this experience behind them and concentrate on the challenges of the Ryman Premier.

Grays Athletic started strongly and deservedly led through a David Fallah goal and it was against the run of play when Jack Ainsley equalised in the 38th minute after his penalty was saved by Mikheil Kharshiladze.

The second half was only 39 seconds old when Byron Lawrence fired the Blues ahead and then six minutes later Matt Blake added a third. Gareth Heath’s 80th minute goal sealed the victory.
