Bury Town’s winning form continued as they cruised through their FA Trophy third qualifying round encounter with Grays Athletic in a 5-1 success.

A Billy Clark double was added to by Ryan Semple, Adam Bailey-Dennis and Shane Tolley in what proved a fifth consecutive win in all competitions for Richard Wilkins’ men.

In contrast, Needham Market’s stuttering form continues as they were forced to settle for a share of the spoils at home to Barkingside in a 2-2 draw.

Ian Westlake had given the Marketmen an early lead before Calvin Poku and Andy Edmunds put the visitors ahead at the break. However the hosts claimed a point after the interval as debutant Ryan Crisp struck.
