At 4 - 0 at Half-time, it was nothing to lose for Canvey and in the last 20 minutes they actually managed to get into the game. With Ty Gooden, Neil Midgley, Neil Gregory, Ollie Berquez & Chris Duffy all having chances at goal in the second half. Lee Boylan had Canvey's best chance of the first-half vollying narrowly over from the just past the penalty spot.

A couple of sloppy goals, but most were powerful, well taken strikes by the Division 1. outfit.
Paul Shaw opened the scoring for the Gills on 18 minutes, followed by John Hills 4 minutes later. Ian Cox made it 3 half and hour into the game before Nyron Nosworthy slotted home just before half-time.
13 minutes after halftime and John Hills fired home a penalty before Shaw completed his hat-trick by popping home a rebound 11 minutes before time.
Canvey made several substitutions during the second half:
- Lee Boylan & Lee Protheroe - OFF
- Neil Gregory & Peter Smith - ON
- Micky Bennett - OFF
- Kevin Dobinson - ON
- Jeff Minton - OFF
- Ollie Berquez - ON
I have to say the 7th goal should not have been. Out of all of them this one could've been prevented the easiest - If the Goalkeeper hadn't stopped short of his one-on-one to allow the attacker to lob him! <img src="/images/graemlins/mad.gif" alt="" />
However Ian Cox's 40 yard stike was a superb goal!!!
