14A Dungarvan 2 Southend 5
Good win away against a big physical side. Scorers were Jack, Jimmy and another hatrick from Callum. A very emotional occasion today as we remembered our great friend Shanny. Albert spoke very fondly of him to the lads beforehand and told them of his great character and humour and just an all-round popular and lovable fella. He will be sorely missed by his family and friends and all of us and he will be forever in our hearts. RIP Shanny

It was a very sombre Southend United which took to the field today after the passing of one of our former players Maurice’Shanny” Shanahan .After observing the minutes silence it wasn’t long before we took control and ended up comfortable winners.Goalscorers were Toisin,Sam,Rhys,Calum all one each,Bami got 2 and Jack got a hat trick. Well done to Dev and his squad.
Maurice Shanahan RIP
- All of Southend would like to send their condolences to all the Shanahan family and Edel and Mia on the heart-breaking and devastating passing of Maurice, a legend in the history of the Club and also important to note, one of the best players ever to don the famous Tangerine jersey
