Grays are back on the road once again this Saturday as they travel south to face Ryman Premier new boys, Burgess Hill Town. This will be a new place to visit for many Blues fans so here is a few facts about the club. The club was formed 8 years before Grays Ath, in 1882. They are known as "The Hillians" and their kits are Green at home with yellow as the change strip. They also won Ryman South last season. That success has been carried into this season as The Hillians have won their first two Premier games.
They started the season away in Suffolk at Needham Market with a 2-1 win before beating VCD 2-0 in front of their own fans last Wednesday. So with that in mind Grays will have to be on their toes this Saturday.
Having said that, Blues won 3-2 away at Tonbridge Angels on Tuesday and will be full of confidence. That game see the return of Dumebi Dumaka to the Grays attack and he scored a brace to get his goal tally off the mark. Match winner Joao Carlos has also carried on last season's form while debutant full back Luke Ifil impressed manager Mark Bentley. There is a supporters coach going to this game so hopefully there will be another good turn out of Blues fans just like last Tuesday in Kent.
