ROCKS played a full part for most of this open and highly entertaining game, but it all went badly wrong in the closing minutes.
TO coincide with International Day of the Girl on Monday 11th October, The FA launched a new campaign – Let Girls Play – which supports their strategic ambition to give all girls equal access to play football in school by 2024.
BUT a superb individual effort from Southend United loanee Jon Benton, who beat two men before crashing home a strike from the edge of the box, put Rocks level on 34 minutes.
FOLLOWING the retirement of Jim Cooper I have been looking to bring someone into Grays Athletic, not only to assist me, but to help improve this group with the same mindset and values that I and the club are looking for.

THE visiting Rocks looked to have established a grip on tonight’s (Tuesday, 21 September) replay when Johnny Ashman put them ahead on 37 minutes and six minutes later Ben Wyss gave them a two goal half time advantage.

AVELEY suffered the heartbreak of bowing out of the FA Cup on penalties this evening (Monday, 13 September) in a tight fought match against a side managed by their former boss Justin Gardner that at times became fractious.

TILBURY’S poor start to the season continued with a defeat away to Barking.
GRAYS Athletic went down to their first defeat of the season at Maldon on Friday night.
