Thanks for following the coverage this afternoon!
I'm back at Rush Green on Tuesday night, where Grays are taking on Soham Town Rangers in the league!
Full match report to follow.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
Aveley 1 - 4 Margate
Grays Athletic 0 - 5 Maidstone United
Horsham 0 - 2 Thurrock
Kingstonian 2 - 3 East Thurrock United
Soham Town Rangers 1 - 1 Tilbury
A chastening second half for Millers sees them knocked out of the FA Cup.
The Aveley midfield were a tad lightweight, with Dolby running riot up front. He might have had more, Margate might have had more, but all in all, 4-1 is probably a fair result.
Full time scores from Thurrock's other non-league sides to come
FULL TIME: Aveley 1 - 4 Margate
Dying moments here.
Aveley simply outplayed.
Good chance for a Margate 5th as Tommy Murphy, from deep in his own half runs at Aveley. His options, gathered on the left, are both offside but the defence parts and he runs straight through.
The chasing defender does just enough for Murphy to scuff his shot.
Mark Corneille booked for tackle from behind on Dadson.

GOAL: Grays Athletic 0-3 Maidstone United. Davisson 78mins— @maidstoneunited 22 September 2012
Aveley sub: Marcus Rose off, Jamel Willer on.
Well that was easy for Margate. Slight argument that Junior Dadson was fouled in the build up, but Gate played on.
Bodkin corssed low from the right for Rhodes, who only had to tap it in from 6 yards.
GOAL! Aveley 1 - 4 MARGATE - Alex Rhodes
Another chance for Margate to seal the deal goes begging as Tommy Murphy's long free kick is flicked on, but from six yards Corneille couldn't turn it in.
Marcus Rose booked for Aveley as Matt Bodkin comes on for the impressive Dolby (who should have had a hat trick) for Margate

Game's got a bit scrappy with a number of misplaced passes in the past few moments from both sides.
Chance for Margate to well and truly wrap it up. Dolby took the ball under 10 yards from goal, prodded it but the ball was sent wide.
Oakley already making an impact. He looks sharp, winning the ball and moving it on.
Could give the Margate defence something to think about in the last 15 minutes or so.
Couple of changes before that:
Shane Oakley on for Jordan Cox
For Margate, Alex Rhodes on for Carl Rook
Nice break by Millers sees Dadson released down the left. His shot is turned in by Kamara, who was rushing into the box.
Comeback? There's still time!
GOAL! AVELEY 1 - 3 Margate - Alfred Kamara
Good save by McCartney as Margate break on Aveley again, this time it's a great shot by Dolby, breaking through again and firing from 17 yards.
Good play in the Aveley half again by Margate (they're well on top in there now) saw the ball cleverly played out to Tommy Murphy whose cross was looped toward the back post and headed in by sub Corneille.
GOAL! Aveley 0 - 3 MARGATE - Mark Corneille
RT @graysathscores: GOAL: Grays Athletic 0-1 MAIDSTONE UNITED - Paul Booth (68) http://t.co/BKYhmTxd #grayslive— @Grays_Athletic 22 September 2012
A very well worked goal for Margate. Dolby does well down the right, crosses in and as Aveley fail to deal with it, the ball falls to Long at the back post who taps home.
The midfielder has just been forced off with an injury though. He's replaced by Mark Corneille
GOAL! Aveley 0 - 2 Margate - Sam Long
GOAL: KINGSTONIAN 1-2 East Thurrock United— @1EastThurrockFC 22 September 2012
Aveley have a goal disallowed. Alfred Kamara smashes a low volley home, but the referee blows up for a free-kick after the defender is challenged unfairly as the ball drops to Kamara.
Aveley sub: Jack Stevenson off, Sheldon Sellears on
Aveley have reverted back to not challenging for the ball in the middle. Much hesitation when Margate play the ball forward.
Not proving expensive yet, but as the game wears on, it could. Particularly as Aveley need the ball.
131 here at Millfield this afternoon.
Nice football from Aveley. Nice exchange between Cox and Sontag, with a cross from the latter deflected out for a corner.
Then another, as Holloway punches Burnett's corner away. Nervy moments for Gate. They look a little vulnerable from these set pieces. Holloway in particular looks uneasy.
Third corner in as many minutes now. This time it's too long from the Miller's left back.
Aveley look to be a bit more competitive in midfield early on in this second period. Kamara in particular is looking stronger.
Seemed to me to be where they were struggling in the first half.
Just need to take any chance that comes their way now though while also keeping taps on the dangerous Dolby, who despite missing a number of chances in the first half, is wiley and quick.
Their looked to be a blatant hand ball as an Aveley throw wound up in the Margate box, but only muted appeals before a free-kick is given the other way.
Second half is underway here at Millfield
Certainly not showing as obviously as it could be that Margate a more than 20 places higher than Aveley in league football.
Game up for grabs!
Other half-time scores:
Kingstonian 0 - 2 East Thurrock
Grays Athletic 0 - 0 Maidstone
Horsham 0 - 1 Thurrock
Soham Town Rangers 0 - 0 Tilbury
Right on the cusp of half-time then, Margate lead. It's Ryan Dolby, who's squandered a number of excellent chances who heads home from a corner.
Aveley have had a couple of chances themselves, particularly in the early stages of the game through Cox.
But they've struggled in possession, especially in midfield, against an effective Margate side.
They're not out of this by any means though.
GOAL! Aveley 0 - 1 MARGATE - Ryan Dolby
Oh dear Dolby, another chance squandered and this one is probably better than the first. He picks up a loose pass by Burnett, skips past McCartney and with the goal gaping he scuffs a side footed effort with doesn't have enough power on it to reach the goal. It's collected and cleared.
Little break in play here for an injury to a Margate defender. Aveley had the ball in the net, but the ref called for a foul on Rose who has just received some treatment

GOAL: Kingstonian 0-2 EAST THURROCK UNITED - Higgins (42) http://t.co/2JKX0QOP— @FWPFACup 22 September 2012
A hairy moment for Margate as a back pass is fired hard at Gate keeper Holloway. He does excellently to control it on his chest and clear for a corner as Cox closes in.
A yellow card for dissent shown to Carl Rook. Aveley have a free kick right in the corner of their own half. But they're second to the kick and Margate can attack them again. This time a scuffed effort trickles harmlessly into McCartney's arms.
Good effort from Mark Sontag as he fires just over from 25 yards.
Aveley are getting chances, but need to be careful at the back.
BIG let off for Paul Burnett. With the ball in the left back area, Dan Stubbs nicked it off him as he tried to be clever - he wanted to tap it round Stubbs and run - but he made a right hash of it. Stubbs collected, began bearing down on goal as Stevenson came across. His shot from 18 yards went into the side netting.
Aveley cannot afford to make mistakes like that.
Nice one-touch football from Aveley, with Stevenson and Holland teeing up Cox who unleashes a half volley from 25 yards which isn't far wide.
Better from Millers.
Chance of the game squandered by Margate in embarassing fashion too.
Dolby made a great run, was picked out by Avery and with only the keeper to beat, snapped early at his shot sending it high over the bar from 18 yards.
Great football from Gate as they push the ball wide. It's crossed to the back post by Murphy and headed back across goal by Dolby, but Rook just fails to turn it in.
Aveley escape again. Bit of a pattern emerging now. Margate seeing lots of the ball and getting it forward often.
Aveley, at this stage, looking a little toothless in the final third. Defending well enough against the Ryman Prem table-toppers though.
Another chance, this time for Margate. A corner is played into the back post, Rook does excellently to head it back across goal, but amongst a melee of players, no one can head it goal wards.
Some surprise that Cox has started this game instead of sub Oakley, but he's done well so far. His presence, at least, is causing Avery and Beales in the Margate defence all sorts of problems.
Aveley extremely compact. The idea looks to be to deny Margate any space at every opportunity.
20 players within a 20 yard by 20 yard box just inside the Aveley half as the Margate goal kick is taken.
Millers looking a little more expansive on the ball, though.
Great chance again for Cox and Aveley. Lovely overlapping run from left full-back by Paul Burnett, whose cross into the near post is excellent. Cox is unmarked but can't position himself to direct the header goalwards, instead its just wide.
Great game, this!
Nice jinking run in midfield by Sam Long for Margate, making for goal. His 30-yard shot is well struck, but saved smartly by McCartney who holds the ball
Corner for Millers. Good work down the left by Dadson, tackled well as he was about to cross.
It's a super ball by Stevenson, but Cox glances his header wide.
GOAL: Kingstonian 0-1 EAST THURROCK UNITED - Newby (9) http://t.co/KmmeJFB4 #kslive— @KingstonianFC 22 September 2012
Good chance for Margate. The ball is played in from the right and touched back to Rook - though just behind him - but he gets something on it, sending it just wide from six yards.
I was about to say that Aveley have had the best of the opening 6 minutes or so, but Margate are coming into it more here.
The other cup ties involving Thurrock sides are underway to. I'll bring you details of those as and when!
That was a decent opening for Aveley though, as Dadson broke down the left, crossed low but Cox couldn't reach it, with Holloway gathering in the Margate goal.
Ok, we're a tad behind. But on top at last.
Not a bad start to the game, fairly even so far. Both sides have had the ball in the box early on, but no real chances as of yet.
The Margate team:
Holloway; Starkey, Avery, Beales, Pooley; Alaile, Long, Rook, Murphy; Dolby, Murphy
Ball, Coneille, Rhodes, Ogmogbehin, Christianson, Bodkin, Mattless
The teams then:
McCartney; Rose, Stevenson, Leader (c), Burnett; Sontag, Sands, Kamara, Dadson; Holland, Cox
Oakley, Appiah, Sellears, Edwards, Willer, Worster
We're underway here!
