Grays are the visitors to Kingfield today. The Essex side are 20th in the league and they will not defend their FA Trophy title after being beaten 2-1 (aet) by Stevenage in the second leg of the semi-finals.

LAST SEASON
Grays fans couldn?t have predicted a better season last time out, in their first venture at this level of non league football. They took an early lead in the Conference, remaining unbeaten through the early months of the season. They eventually finished in third place and were beaten in the semi-finals of the promotion play-offs by Halifax Town. As we all know, they successfully retained the FA Trophy with a 2-0 win over ourselves.

THE GRAYS SQUAD
Grays lost talented striker Aaron McLean to Peterborough in January along with midfielder Michael Kightly who joined Championship side Wolves. Weymouth duo Simon Downer and Abdou El-Kholti joined during the transfer window, along with Shrewsbury defender Gavin Cowan. More recently Justin Edinburgh has signed Brentford striker Alex Rhodes on a seven-week loan deal and former Plymouth defender Anthony Barness on a deal until the end of the season. Former Card Scott Canham was released earlier in the season, and Justin Richards returned to Peterborough after a spell with the club. Captain Stuart Thurgood is back in the centre of midfield following injury and usually partners former Leyton Orient and Farnborough player John Martin. Striker Lee Boylan has moved to Chelmsford City on loan for the rest of the season.

Woking went in search of their first victory of the campaign to high-flying Grays Athletic. With two minutes on the clock, new loanee signing Jon Nurse conceded a free-kick on the right hand side. Michael Kightly swung the ball over and Grays striker Aaron Mclean leapt highest and headed home, leaving Shwan Jalal no chance. Woking tried to get back into the game, with Gary MacDonald heading wide, but just before half-time Grays struck again to make it 2-0. Sambrook skipped past 2 tackles before playing the ball to McLean, who curled a beautiful shot past Jalal from 25 yards out. 5 minutes into the second half, Grays added a third. Michael Kightly, who had impressed all afternoon, was put through, and his cross come shot went over Jalal and nestled into the top corner.
