A SINGLE goal in the second half was enough to keep Aveley top of the table.
Isthmian North Grays Ath 1 v 1 Coggeshall Town By The Mariner TWO goals in two minutes just after the break resulted in a share of the points for these two closely matched outfits.

Isthmian Division North Brentwood 1 v 0 Grays Ath AS a spectacle this encounter proved to be a disappointing occasion marred as it was by a heavy and uneven surface hindering both sets of players. Brentwood eventually emerged the victors courtesy of a Tom Richardson strike in the first half, but Blues not for the […]
AVELEY have had a glorious start to the new year by going top of the league.
IT was honours even in this local derby on New Years Day at Chadfields.
IT was New Year woe for Blues when they succumbed to their heaviest home defeat of the season against a very good Canvey Island who controlled long periods of the encounter. Danny Sambridge produced a man of the match performance making a number of crucial saves to keep

BLUES produced a gritty and determined display at Ram Meadow twice going in front and looking to claim the three points only to be denied in the closing stages by another poor refereeing decision in the build up to the Bury Town late equaliser

Blues holding a two goal advantage at half time held the upper hand but a spirited Dockers second half fightback ensured […]
ON a cold windswept afternoon Blues returned to winning ways courtesy of a far post header from Geoffrey Okonkwo . Fans must have been thinking it was going to be another afternoon of what if after the woodwork had denied them on three occasions. Hashtag United had their moments, starting well but faded as the […]
AN IMPRESSIVE win saw Aveley go into the play-off places on Saturday afternoon.
EAST Thurrock come into this game on the back of a win against Lewes and were hoping to continue the streak with their new management.
AS Jimmy Greaves once said “it’s a funny old game Saint,”Blues certainly proved that. After a superb high tempo performance on Wednesday against AFC Sudbury they produced a limp, lifeless display lacking drive and direction. Nothing should be taken away from Stowmarke
THE Blues and AFC Sudbury served up a superb evening of attacking football on Wednesday evening with Joe Paxman on the scoresheet for both teams. Play flowed from end to end, chances were created and scorned, the woodwork intervened , goals ruled out for offside
AFTER yesterday’s defeat to Leatherhead Paul Martin decided to step down with immediate effect.
