East Thurrock Utd – The Vale – Sat 3 Dec


We welcome East Thurrock Utd to The Vale this coming  Saturday (3 Dec)  for our latest Vanarama National League South fixture kick-off 15:00.

Our visitors were promoted from the Ryman Premier League last season and are presently sitting in 8th place on 28 points from their 19 games played having won 6, drawn 10 and lost 3, scoring 35 and conceding 21 goals . On their last League outing they draw at home to St. Albans City and on Tuesday night dispatched Margate 2-0 at home in a Buildbase FA Trophy 3QR replay following a 1-1 draw on Saturday.

The Stones management team will have been pleased with the team performance over the two games with Maidenhead Utd. On Saturday in the 2-2 draw at York Road Stones played some excellent football and created plenty of chances, on Tuesday it was more of the same  at The Vale as we progressed to the Trophy with a 2-1 win.

We would like to thank Brian Downard from Multipest for sponsoring the game & Bappo, Attic & Mark H + Tony & Peter Drew fot the match ball donation.
