By GAFC News

Blues move from Parkside to Park Lane on Tuesday evening when they meet Canvey Island in a BetVictor league encounter. Both sides will be eager to build on their opening day wins, Blues enjoyed an emphatic victory over Brentwood Town with the Gulls coming from behind to overcome Romford at the Brentwood Arena , supporters of both clubs can look forward to an intriguing evening of football.

Ex Blues boss Mark Bentley has made a number of new signings in the close season most significant is striker George Purcell who marked his league debut with a brace on Saturday to secure an opening day win. The Gulls also include in their squad ex Blues Michael Finneran and Lamar Johnson both signed in the close season.

Jim Cooper stated he was pleased with Blues performance on Saturday, after going a goal behind inside the 2nd minute they showed real character get back on level terms within a minute and go on to produce a solid performance - a scoreline of 4-1 somewhat flattered their opponents and with a little more composure in front of goal they could have added to their tally. Tony Stokes with a brace looked sharp up front and his strike partner Manny Ogunrinde looked a real threat going forward. Following the win on Saturday confidence within the team will be high as they look to reproduce that form and come away with the points.

Last season Canvey ran out 2-0 winners
