Tonight we travel to Parkside to face Aveley in our final Velocity Cup fixture of the season. The league cup has not gone as planned for the Abbotts this season but we have the chance to sign off against Isthmian North Division Aveley following our victory over fellow North Division side Coggeshall Town, in the Essex Senior Cup on Saturday.
The Millers will still be on a high following a 3-0 victory over Premier Division Bowers & Pitsea in the FA Trophy on Saturday. Prior to that victory, their last two league games finished 2-1. One was a loss to Coggeshall Town, one a victory over Witham Town. In between those two games Aveley also beat East Grinstead Town in the FA Trophy. The Millers have so far won two and lost one in the Velocity Trophy.
All of our recent meetings with the Millers have been in the North Division with results shared.
