East Thurrock edged out of FA Trophy by Dover last night
4:31pm Wednesday 4th December 2013 in Sport
FA TROPHY: EAST Thurrock’s brilliant run in the FA Trophy finally came to an end in a replay defeat at higher league Dover Athletic.
Rocks saw off Eastbourne Town, Canvey and Merthyr Town to reach the first round, and played out a 1-1 at Rookery Hill with Dover on Saturday.
But they found their hosts too strong in Tuesday’s return in Kent as an opening goal from Nathan Elder and a second half brace from Liam Bellamy gave the Conference South side the win.
Rocks were given hope when Kye Ruel made it 1-1 on the hour mark but Dover responded well to book a date with Leamington in the next round.
