I have to bear in mind my comments after the win over Hoddesdon that pre-season results, especially the early ones, don’t necessarily tell us a great deal about the coming competitive season. However, what we have seen so far is two dominant performances against Step 5 sides and one disappointing one against a fellow Step 4 team suggesting perhaps that there is still some work to be done.

This game sees us up against another Step 4 side so here is the chance for us to see indications of an improvement on the performance against Basildon. We might also hope for an improvement on what was a lacklustre showing in last season’s 2-0 FA Cup defeat at Canvey. They went on to the second round proper after that. A case of what might have been?

We're no longer in the same division and now not even the same league but if Canvey can get past Coggeshall Town we will meet them in this season's FA Trophy, having been drawn at home against one of them in October 9th's second qualifying round.
