Fleet too strong for Wroxham

NON LEAGUE: THURROCK battled back from two goals down to grab a late winner and victory at Wroxham.
Fleet showed great determination to claim the three points, which looked very unlikely after they conceded in the first 60 seconds. Stephen Drake and Joe Marsden had put the Yachtsmen in total control going into the break.
But a goal ten minutes after half-time from Charlie Stimson gave Thurrock hope.
Luke Stanley brought parity before the home side had Sam Groves sent off for a second yellow card. That proved costly as David Knight struck two minutes from time to give Thurrock the win and move them up into fourth in the league.
n EAST Thurrock United did not have a league match at the weekend.
On Wednesday night Rocks played a friendly against Burnham Ramblers – but the match took place after this week’s edition of the Thurrock Gazette had gone to print.
n Grays Athletic’s FA Cup clash with Daventry on Sunday never started. It was called off before it started because the pitch was waterlogged.
