  • I was at that game when Tilbury beat grays 2-1 in the biggest crowd I ever saw at st chads rd so exciting. as young lads we all dreamed of FA cup glory. I see the author of this article is Geoffrey Paisley I remember a Geoffrey paisley who lived in chadwell with his brothers David and graham and playing football with them for his team Hillcrest Athletic. could it be the same person?
