It is vital that certain projects are completed to allow YOUR club to grow and be successful. A packed clubhouse of supporters on Saturday will go a long way to help fund and improve the facilities at New Lodge. This night is great for families and ALL are welcome.
Billericay made the journey to title favourites Sutton on Saturday and left feeling that with a bit of luck, and better judgement from the referee, they might have taken at least a share of the points. After gifting their hosts an early lead, Town gave a good account of themselves with Danny Charge hitting the bar before, in the dying minutes of the game, they were denied a penalty when the referee decided that Matt Hall had been fouled just outside the area despite Sam Page's challenge occurring a good yard and a half inside the box.

Blues opened their League account with a comfortable away win against next door neighbours Brentwood Town. With a scoreline indicating just a two goal margin and a void of 84mins, the question in hand should be, how close was this game? Well, that an easy answer, not close at all.... In fact the only thing that was close was the colours we played in. With a four, five, one formation, and five midfielders trying to get on the end of their first hatrick of the season, it was with no surpriset hat the hosts spent most of the evening defending, especially as young Walid Matata found the net early on with a well taken chip just inside the opponents box. It was nice to see a good mixture of youth and senior players making up the side.The back four consisted of Getro Kilapi, Kane Branson, Julnath Goma and Shane Stamp making easy work of any pressure Brentwood decided to apply. In goal was young master Jack Averyof the U18's, playing his first men's football for the club, again making easy work of anything entering his manor. In Midfield running amok was Junior Luke, Matt Hall, Gareth Street, Alex Fiddes and Walid Matata playing just behind Mammadou Traore. To be fair to Brentwood, it was a really nice game to watch with both teams giving their all and some lovely football being played.
Blues second goal did come late in the game (87 mins) when young Tony Martin came on as a sub and wrapped things up putting the hosts out of their prolonged misery (or should I say mine!) with a well taken shot across the goal.

Billericay left it late to edge out local rivals Canvey on Bank Holiday Monday, Danny Charge's 78th minute goal being all that separated the two sides. With the nascent league table now beginning to take shape, the win keeps the Blues in touch with the leading sides, important given that most observers considered Town's start to be among the toughest.
Billericay Town are at home to local Essex rivals Canvey Island in the league today. Kick off is 15:00 at New Lodge.
Historically this has always been an eventful encounter. In three of the last four meetings between the teams, the eventual winners have scored no less that four goals. With the weather set to be good and with Canvey always bringing great away support, it's a spicy encounter to look forward to so early in the season.
Kickoff will be 15:00. The bar will be open from 12:30.
Admission is £9 for adults, £6 for concessions and £2 for under 16’s
