Honours even for the Blues

A share of the points was Grays’ lot away on Saturday.

Sporting their new purple kit against Hayes at Church Lane the Blues struggled to break down the home side’s defence.

Vill Powell who has introduced himself to Blues fans at pre-season friendlies engineered a close call with Hayes keeper Kevin Davies.

Dean Brennan shot wide several times, but looked threatening each time he picked up the ball.

Blues were first on the score-sheet just before the hour as shaven headed defender Eddie Youds flicked Dean Brennan’s free-kick onto a waiting Martin Carthy who rammed the ball home.

Mark Stimson’s replacement for the departed Mel Capleton, Carl Emberson was called upon several times, but he denied the home side until the 71st minute. Adam Everitt fed Scott whose high shot fooled the Grays backline and Emberson too before arcing in.

Freddy Eastwood had his chances late on but with just seconds remaining Youds headed in from a Mitchell Cole corner.

But the linesman thought it had not crossed the line before Jason O’Connor cleared and Grays were denied.

Thanks to the Thurrock Gazette for the report.
