Well done today boys good competitive game wasn’t our day we go again next week. Good luck to @Mattgriek for the rest of the season. ⚽️⚽️⚽️⚽️⚽️⚽️🥊⚽️@AveleyFC @aveleyfcfanstv

Good wins for EJA teams u13s Green and u14s Red who won 1-5 and 0-4 against Berkhampstead and Aveley and keeps both teams in second place in League

Unlucky to lose today ! Thought we created enough chances to score more but credit to @youth_brentwood who also played well! Good luck for the season ⚽️⚽️⚽️⚽️⚽️

Poor first 30 today from the boys often outplayed,outfought & out of shape.
Went behind twice but came in at 2-2 & after a team talk and a reshuffle a much better 2nd half to run out 6-2 winners away to a good young @GraysAthYouth side 💙⚽️
