In a game that saw Dave Diedhiou make his 300th appearance, and Chris Seeby return from over a year out injured, the first team picked up a creditable point against Billericay Town in a 1-1 draw.

Tom Derry gave the visitors the lead in the 39th minute, and shortly afterwards Glenn Poole missed a chance to double the lead as he slammed a penalty against the base of the post.

Play moved down the other end, and the Billericay keeper cleared the ball, only to see Seeby smash it back over his head into the net from fully 45 yards.

The second period saw the Greens look the brighter but unable to secure the final ball, and both sides had to be satisfied with a point.

The Greens go into the final two away games knowing that their Premier Division status was secured at the weekend, with Brentwood Town now joining Lewes and VCD Athletic in being relegated, and Farnborough having been effectively relegated early in the season due to financial irregularities.
