  • Live FA Cup 1st Qualifying Round from Chadfields as Tilbury take on Ryman North Division rivals Waltham Abbey


Thanks for following our coverage and we will be back with you very soon.


Great results for Thurrock and East Thurrock. Rocks lost this very fixture 3-0 last weekend and Fleet have shown their class with that solid performance away from home.


Elsewhere - Aveley 2-5 Canvey Island, Hornchurch 1-1 East Thurrock, Bury Town 0-2 Thurrock


Tilbury have won after a lot of late drama. Still unsure who was pushed but there was a lot of bad blood as the game drew to a conclusion. The away keeper almost scored!

Tilbury progress to the second qualifying round. Draw on Monday.

Tilbury progress to the second qualifying round. Draw on Monday.


Tilbury 2-1 Waltham Abbey


Sargent h been sent off for pushing a Tilbury player in the face


Whincup is booked.


Keeper Whincup is up! He shoots but the ball is cleared and he fouls a player as he runs through on goal.


Pooley goes in hard on Coley and a free kick given. A melee of players involved.


Great save from Ramos! Bruno is played through by Coley but the ball is tipped aside.


Peagram shoots from 20 yards but it rolls into keeper Ramos' arms.


Tilbury almost home and dry although they are looking for a third. Waltham Abbey going out with a bit of a whimper here.


Some hard challenges going in on half way but the ref is letting the game go.


More terrific wing play by Daniel but Tilbury can't convert. 


Tilbury sub - Blackman off replaced by James Zanelli


Waltham Abbey haven't created a clear cut chance in thisnsecond half. That will need to change for them to stay in the cup. Dockers ten minutes away.


Densham cross is cleared by Ramos under pressure. Abbey corner. Punched clear.


Maxwell is fouled from behind by West. Ref needs to keep a lid on things here. Free kick Abbey


WA sub - Barnes off and Gillmar Rodriguez-Galleon on


Bruno and Cook involved in some argh bargy but no action taken by red. Right decision I say


Chance for Tilbury! Drilled cross from Waters sees Cook head just wide under pressure. Looking the most likely at the moment.


Dockers pressing really hight up the pitch with Daniel and Cook pressing at every opportunity.


Cutler is another who has played well. He has linked up play well and of course scored a crucial goal so far.


Waltham Abbey subs - Russell and Bristow off replaced by Billy Densham and Loren Maxwell.


Tilbury sub - Francis off Tony Jacobs on


Daniel has caused lots of problems for the away side today with his direct running. 


Both midfields are battling for possession. Really keenly fought with neither able to keep the ball for too long at the moment.


Tilbury sub - Weemes, who has barely had a sniff, is replaced by Harry Cook.


Jasper Owens doesn't control the ball and Daniel is through! Owens brings him down outside the box and gets rightly booked.


Tilbury have started this half on fire and are pressing for a third goal.


Sam Cutler smashes in from ten yards. Waters corner is not cleared after Rimmel's header is punched clear and Cutler fires home after the ball drops loose at his feet.


Tilbury retake the lead!!


Waltham Abbey break through Bruno, Peagram and Coley and win a corner of their own.


Waters corner is headed wide by Rimmel Daniel.


Tilbury pressing early on and have won an early corner.


And we are off once again. 


Teams are out for the second half


A really decent first half from both sides. Tilbury raced out the blocks but Abbey fought back well after weathering the storm. On balance of play they may feel they deserve to be leading at halftime.


Elsewhere : Bury Town 0-1 Thurrock, Aveley 1-2 Canvey Island, Hornchurch 0-0 East Thurrock


Tilbury 1-1 Waltham Abbey


Coley is offside when played through by Bristow. Coley has to be doing better there.


Brilliant save! Whincup makes a hash of initial clearance but he brilliantly tips over Francis' shot from eight yards. Top goalkeeping. Resulting corner cleared.


Cutler wins a free kick and Waters looks to strike one in before half time.


Cutler looks to play in Francis but the ball is cleared in front of the back four.


Abbey hit the crossbar. Chris Sargent heads against the bar from a Bristow corner when he should have scored. Tilbury break but ball is cleared. Real cup tie this. 


Tilbury almost strike back immediately. Mead picks up a loose ball outside the area but his first time shot flies just over. The right-back has played well this afternoon.


A deserved equaliser for Abbotts who have played well for last 20 minutes


Tom Bruno puts his foot through the free kick and leathers a shot high into the net from 25 yards. Great goal.


Goal!!!! Waltham Abbey equalise.


Well claimed by Ramos. However within seconds the ball is back in the Tilbury half and the away side have a free kick.


Coley shot is blocked behind for a Waltham Abbey corner.


Pooley is down after an innocuous looking challenge from Russell. Physio is on so he can receive treatment.


Owen deflects the ball over his own crossbar after excellent work from Daniel and Francis. Corner.


Game has got a bit scrappy now. A while since the front men for the Dockers have seen the ball.


The winner of this tie will pocket a very nice £2,500.


Whincup looks shaky in goal for the Abbotts so worth testing him in this rain - whih has slightly eased up.


This is a much more balanced tie now. Anyone's guess where the next goal is going.


Peagram freekick is deflected wide from 20 yards.


Pooley goes in very late on the WA. forward outside the box. Dangerous position.


Russell is through but a fantastic recovery from Christou sees the ball cleared in the area. Brilliantly timed.


West looked to foul Peagram there but no foul called. The away side continue to press and Peagram's header is knocked away by Ramos in goal. But the flag is up.


The rain is really coming down now. Really difficult conditions.


Conor Mead wins a tackle on the halfway line before sprinting forward and delivering a cross that is cleared from under his own crossbar.


Joe Christou's terrific raking pass just evades Daniel. Tilbury pushing high up the pitch.


The Abbotts only looking to clear the ball at the moment. Really under immense pressure.


Francis with a low drive from 20 yards is tipped around the post! All the pressure coming from the home side. 


Apologies to slow start to live feed. Signal problems once again coming to the fore!


Tilbury almost double their lead! A slack back pass puts Whincup under real pressure and he has to slide to clear the ball under pressure from Daniel


Early chants of "we're going to Wembley" may be premature!


That is his fourth goal in a week! 


It's an early goal for Dockers! The ball is bobbling around in midfield but now Francis is played through! He puts the ball past the keeper for twelve yards!


The game has started at a fierce pace. 


Tilbury in usual black and white stripes. Waltham Abbey in green.


Great to see academy prospects Aldwinckle and Warren make the bench today. Great platform to build a career from. 


Mr Panconi is the referee

Here are this afternoon's teams...


Good afternoon and welcome to Chadfields for LIVE commentary on Tilbury vs Waltham Abbey in the FA Cup 1st qualifying round.

Tilbury come into the FA Cup tie off the back of two good results. Seven days ago they secured a last gasp win against Thurrock rivals Aveley when Danny Francis scored two late goals. Francis was at it again midweek when he scored an injury time equaliser against Redbridge. He starts today.

Meanwhile Waltham Abbey beat Brentwood 3-2 last weekend and beat Whitton United (after a replay) to progress to this round. Tilbury beat Kirkley & Pakefield 2-0 in the preliminary round.


The two sides met in the FA Cup last year with a thrilling 3-3 draw played out at Chadfields. Dockers nicked a 1-0 win in the league.

Both teams are on a good run of form. Dockers having lost one in the last six. WA won their last five.
