13 A Tramore 0 Southend United 2
Our under 13a team continued their good league form with a fourth league win on the trot which leaves them on top of the league at this early stage. We made a few positional changes which the lads handled with ease. We had most of the in the first half but couldn’t make the breakthrough as the Tramore defence were very stubborn and clever. We scored ten mins into the second half through a Jack Twomey screamer after Jimmy Byrnes had a shot well saved. Soon after, Callum Flynn scored a cross com shot from an impossible angle to settle us down. We actually played our best football in the last 15 mins when the pressure was off to record another good win for this talented group of lads. It was nice to see Azeez, Charlie and Bojan get game time too which is so important. Best on the day was Adam Queally and Peter Ellickson.
15 A Southend 1 Ballinroad 1
Fair result in a game which could have gone either way, but well done to our lads for battling through a number of injuries to pick up a point in the end.Shane o Brien was on the score sheet in the first half, capping a fine display, others to impress included Kyle Cooke,Brandon Kennedy Dunphy , Dylan Rowe , Devon Keogh but Man of the Match was certainly Alex Keane, who was awesome at the back.
15B Southend United 3 Dungarvan 5
Lads were beaten here against a very strong, physical side. We must take great heart from this performance as this is essentially our 14A team working through their development process and who are sticking to our beliefs of playing as much football as possible on the ground.
We played some excellent football and on reflection perhaps should have got something out of this game .Scorers on the say were Jamie Hutchinson Sean Hearne and John o Toole Man of the match goes to Ethan Hayes, well done to all involved.
