Canvey make Trophy progress after a hard-fought win at Heybridge
CANVEY Island booked their place in the FA Trophy second qualifying round after a 2-1 victory at Heybridge Swifts today.
The Ryman Premier side took the lead midway through the first half, thanks to an accurate left-foot finish from Harrison Chatting.
But Swifts, of division one north, levelled seven minutes later through Russell Malton.
The former Colchester United youngster connected with a through ball and prodded into an empty net after getting the better of Gulls goalkeeper Ashley Vickers.
The second half was a tense affair but it was Canvey who grabbed an all-important second goal, following a close-range header from Rio Bryan Edwards.
