Only audio for the FA Cup due to right issues I believe, I've got Bob and Billy on but no link visible for video as usually is for me abroad.

Nice one lads, was starting to sound like it might turn into a frustrating dominate and don't capitalise half. Now hopefully pick them off a couple more times when they come forward more.

:D That's more like it, sounded like it might have been as much a cross as a shot but much more the scoreline we needed. Keep a clean sheet now.

ETA And a third as i was typing that. Think we can call that a decent shift!

Amazing half. Billericay simply could not get the ball and were as dazzled as we fortunate supporters

Ok, we should be easily superior to the opposition. But to perform like that in slippery conditions. Simply fantastic

Give it 10 minutes into half 2 then rotate the squad?

Feed me til I want no more ......

Great goals too. Stevens header, Mills rocket and atchinson placed his after great work from Shep and Dom.

Notice Doidge is back! 2 goals for hibs by 17mins. Hope he really finds his form now and can the Bolton fiasco behind him.

Agreed. Good goals when they finally came. We haven’t let Billericay into the game and need to keep up the pressure to keep things that way.

Great news that Doidge already has a brace. He’ll come good up there and maybe the new manager will develop him further when he arrives.

Good result by Forest Green Rovers in what could have been a banana skin. In the end the difference in the leagues told and Rovers march on to the second round.

Attendance: 1419 (302 from Billericay)

Man-of-the-Match: Arron Collins

(Perhaps Groundsman Adam Witchell should have been M-o-t-M for getting the pitch playable)

Happy supporter here again.

I think even Coops was surprised when he heard the MOTM. Adams easily deserved it although Stevens and Aitch were busy too.

About FGR

We’re a club that looks to the future, but our identity is forged from a rich 128-year history. Founded in 1889, we’re one of the oldest football clubs in the world.

In 2017, we were promoted to the Football League for the first time in our history – which means we can spread our sustainability message to an even bigger audience. FIFA recently described us as the greenest football club in the world. That’s quite an accolade, and it shows how we’ve been able to bring together football and environmental consciousness at the highest levels of the game.
