COUNTY CUP: TWO goals from East Thurrock, both at the wrong end, saw Grays progress to the fourth round of the County Cup.
Both sides fielded strong sides for the contest, but Blues took the lead 10 minutes before half-time when Simon Peddie diverted the impressive Luke Marshall’s cross into his own net.
Late in the game, Joao Carlos bounded forward, only to see his shot saved by Richard Wray. Joe Keith was helpless, though, to prevent the ball bouncing off of him and into the net to secure a 2-0 win for the home-side. Grays travel to Maldon & Tiptree in the next round.
