AN injury time header from goalkeeper Alan Julian allowed Billericay Town to ensure they will be in the hat for the first round of the FA Cup after sealing a 1-1 draw at National League side Sutton United.

The hosts went ahead inside eight minutes as Omar Bugiel slotted home.

But Billericay, who were chasing a place in the first round of the competition for the third year in succession, were not to be denied and Julian proved to be the hero by heading home in the dying moments.

Meanwhile, in the Isthmian North, Canvey Island recorded a 2-1 derby victory over Basildon United at Park Lane.

The Gulls went ahead inside 10 minutes thanks to Jason Hallett finding the back of the net, but Basildon striker Adam Vyse came back to haunt his former club by levelling matters from a tight angle via a Mike Finneran deflection.

However, Canvey collected all three points in unlikely circumstances.

Bees goalkeeper Clarke Bogard tipped a James White free-kick onto the crossbar, only for the ball to drop onto his back and end up in his own net.

Elsewhere, Great Wakering Rovers beat high-flying Grays Athletic 3-1 thanks to goals from Jake Gordon, Jon Benton and Jack Stevenson.

As a result, Joao Carlos' late penalty was not enough for the visitors at Burroughs Park.

And Hullbridge Sports claimed a share of the spoils as they drew 1-1 with Dereham Town.

Jamie Salmon put Sports ahead soon after the interval, but the hosts hit back through David Hinton.

In the National League South, Concord Rangers lost 2-0 to bottom side Hungerford Town.

Taofiq Olomowewe gave the visitors a 50th minute lead by grabbing his first Crusaders goal.

And Liam Ferdinand put the game beyond the Beach Boys in the dying moments.
