Football: FA Cup wins for Grays Athletic and Aveley

GRAYS Athletic and Aveley live to fight another day after victory in today’s FA Cup Preliminary Round ties – but Tilbury are out of the competition.

Aveley faced something of a banana skin with a tough looking trip to lower league Harpenden and came through with a 3-0 win. 

First half goals from Bradley Sach and George Sykes and a second half goal from George Allen saw the Millers through comfortably. 

It was a lot closer at Parkside where Grays needed a last minute goal to beat fellow Isthmian North Witham Town – and it came when Nathan Okaye put through his own goal.

In another all Isthmian North tie Tilbury went down 2-0 at Coggeshall.
