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!
The Billericay Town Soccer School is back this Easter.
Dates: Tuesday 6th to Friday 9th April, 10:00-15:00 each day. Venue: Billericay Town Training Ground, Blunts Wall Road, Billericay. Cost: £45 for the 4 days.
Our soccer school is open to boys and girls, aged between 4 and 14, of all abilities - it's the ideal way for your child to spend their Easter holiday. The school includes an attendance medal, skills competition, fun games, free match ticket, and a mini World Cup tournament.
Our qualified coaches work with the children to help them develop techniques and skills but enjoyment is our priority. Many of our children return year after year so early booking is recommended.
Booking forms can be downloaded here or collected from the club.
Following their re-instatement in the League Cup at the expense of Concord Rangers, the Blues will be keen to capitalise on this stroke of good fortune and progress into the quarter finals on Thursday evening. Sittingbourne Town provide the opposition at New Lodge for this 4th round tie.
I had a chat with a few supporters after the game Saturday, it seems I need to clarify a few things.
I have made some comments recently like “I’ve been saddened with certain things” and “to be careful what you wish for”. These were broad in that they were about the club, so could and have been interpreted in many different ways
I’ve been disappointed with many things this season and this will include:
Some people have chosen to listen and believe whispers and rumours..
The BTSA has become dysfunctional and almost non-existent.
Our Colts section has drifted away to such an extent that they seem to be a completely separate club.
There’s a lot of bitching and back-biting going on.
And of course, on the pitch we have under performed.
What I’ve tried and failed to do these past 6 years, was to unite the various different factions, and clubs that were operating under the umbrella of BTFC.
I still think that’s a shame, but it’s the reality so we, and I, are going to have to adjust.

Billericay and Maidstone shared the spoils at New Lodge on Saturday as they drew one all. The point keeps Town out of the relegation zone for now, although it is only goal difference preventing them from slipping into the bottom four.

BILLERICAY eased their relegation worries with a comfortable 3-1 victory at fellow strugglers Margate.
The Blues went into this vital league clash on the back of three straight defeats and with just a single win in their last six games. Manager Brian Statham was forced into a solitary change to his side from the one that started Saturday’s defeat at Kingstonian. Influential midfielder Russell Pond was out injured meaning Jacob Cleaver was handed his full league debut as the Blues opted for a more conventional 4-4-2 formation.
