Accrington Stanley 2 - 3 Grays Athletic
Stanley suffered only their second home defeat of the season this afternoon as Grays Athletic took all three points at the Interlink Express Stadium. Gary Roberts opened the scoring for Stanley in the 18th minute to give the Reds a one goal lead at half time, but two goals from Glenn Poole a couple of minutes either side of the hour mark gave the visitors the lead. Ian Craney levelled the scores in the 65th minute but an Aaron McClean strike with ten minutes was enough to secure all three points for Grays.

Mount Pleasant Primary School's Girls
On last Saturday's match versus Stevenage you may have noticed at
half-time a short match taking place in front of the Coppice End. The
team showing off their skills was Mount Pleasant Primary School's Girls
Team from Clayton. They won a competition in conjunction with The
Nationwide Supporters of Tommorow scheme which ran through the local press and on this website to be trained by our very own coaches and to show
off their skills at half-time of the match. A great time was had by all!
