Tomorrow, Saturday, we wrap up our pre-season campaign with a home game against step 4 Grays Athletic (kickoff 3pm).
Last season Grays finished 5th in Isthmian League North and were beaten by Sudbury in the playoff semifinal.
They are now managed by former Hornchurch boss Mark Stimson and expected to mount a strong promotion challenge this season.
In their most recent pre-season friendly, Grays showed their mettle by securing a creditable 1-1 draw away at Canvey Island.
Tomorrow’s match gives our management team one final chance to fine tune preparations on the pitch, with two training sessions due to take place next week ahead of the big Aug 12 kickoff.
