Billericay’s relegation woes continued as they went down 1-0 to fellow strugglers Maidstone United at Ashford Town’s Homelands Stadium.
With the Blues league match with Aveley being postponed on the previous Saturday, this meant it was a back to back meeting with the Stones after both sides shared the spoils at New Lodge just 10 days earlier.

Following last weeks postponements, the Blues go into Tuesday evening’s game at Maidstone keen on a return to action and in the unusual position of playing this season’s league games against their Kent hosts back to back.
The game at New Lodge ten days ago finished all square and those attending Tuesday evenings game can expect another tight encounter as both sides continue their battle to move away from the relegation zone.
Andy Walker has returned to Maidstone United on a month's loan.
Brian Statham said: "Andy remains part of my plans, but he wasn't happy not playing whilst Paul Nicholls is currently starting. He understandably wants to be playing first team football. I'd like to wish him all the best."
What is it about a Billericay v Aveley fixture that brings the worst of the weather? Saturday marks the sixth time that the sides have attempted to play each other this season, with only two of these attempts having been successful!
