Alty 2 v 0 Grays

Another miserable away defeat means it comes down to the last two games as Grays still fight the drop.

Grays Athletic 0 v 0 Rushden and Diamonds

Blue Square Premier April 1st, 2009 GRAYS ATHLETIC did well to carve out another vital point in a tense goal-less draw at the New Rec. The result saw Grays drop into the relegation zone with just six games to go. However, they are now just two points behind Weymouth, three ahead of Woking. The game […]

Burton Albion 4 v 0 Grays Ath

Blue Square Premier, March 28th A 4-0 HUMILIATION at the Pirelli Stadium by Burton Albion saw Grays still stuck in the relegation mire with seven games to go. The result leaves things as they were: three points behind Weymouth and still above Woking and Ebbsfleet. Home Form Teams find it very difficult to adapt to […]

Tilbury 1 v 0 Brentwood

THIS was a ‘must win’ game for Brentwood if they were to have any chance of catching Aveley and East Thurrock. But with the results: Redbridge 0 v 3 East Thurrock; Waltham Abbey 0 v 1 Aveley; it looks like the title chase is to be kept within the borough. Tilbury are on quite a […]

Grays Ath 2 v 1 Mansfield Town

GRAYS ATHLETIC dug very very deep to unearth a hard earned 2-1 victory against Mansfield Town. Before the game, Mansfield staff were clearly incensed by what they understood as the Grays Chairman’s decision to not allow former Blues Aaron O’Connor into the ground. The first half was one of the poorest displays this season but […]

Frank McAvennie: Thameside Theatre

FRANK AND TONY can rightly be described as Hammers legends. Their double-act has now transferred to the stage as they perform a tour which took them to the Thameside Theatre. Before the curtain went up, YourThurrock spoke to Frank about his career and why the fans still come flocking back to see them.

Oxford 4 v 1 Grays Ath

THIS is a difficult one to write. So let’s take it in themes… The Narrative: Grays had a poor game. Oxford were gifted their first two goals in the 8th minute when Kevin Sandwith pounced on a Tony Dinning error three yards out following a free kick just outside the area. In the 28th minute, […]

Tilbury 2 v 0 Billericay

Semi-Final: Isthmian Cup Reporter: Paul Tandy QUITE WHO was the underdog in Tuesday’s Ryman League Cup semi-final was debatable given the injury-ravaged nature of Premier League Billericay’s young side. But what was indisputable is how well Division One North Tilbury played to achieve their place in the final, where they will meet Harrow Borough. Tilbury […]

Aveley 2 v 1 Concord Rangers

A 77th minute, Neil Richmond wonder strike saw Aveley bounce back to the top of the table. Like much of their form since the New Year, Aveley have struggled to dominate a game so it took something special from Neil Richmond to grab the three points. YourThurrock cameras captured the goal. The only black mark […]

Kettering 0 v 0 Grays

GRAYS fought long and hard to earn this point in a stout and manful display at Kettering last night (Tuesday). The statistics may show that Grays dropped down a place in the league but the positive spin is: – Ebbsfleet appear in the relegation zone for the first time; – Grays picked up a point […]

Grays 2 v 1 Altrincham

GRAYS ATHLETIC delivered. They delivered the three points; they delivered two wonderful goals; and they delivered their promise to get the kids into the ground which created a wonderful atmosphere. The only downside is the question of whether this is manager Gary Phillips’ last game or not? We will come to that. Grays played what […]
