A good battling performance saw this side go through to the cup semi-finals against a big physical side We went in at the half time break two down but kept our composure to get a goal back through Sam O Hara with a fine finish, Bami then got our equaliser to bring the game into extra time Bami was once again involved when he was taken down for a penalty which Tooler duly converted. We then killed off the game when Bami scored again an all-round good performance from these lads who showed great resolve to come out winners here.
Under 12A Cup Bohs 0 Southend 2
We advanced to the semi-finals next week with a great performance here. We scored a goal in each half through Redeem who is playing out of his skin the last few weeks and Azeez who is back on form after being sick for a few weeks. From Jason to the lads who came on in second half they were all brilliant and we should have won by more but all that matters is we are in the semi next Saturday. Well done lads

12B Tramore 0 Southend 4 .Another good win for the young lads here. We went through the motions in the first half in very warm weather but after the break we went up a gear and we took control of the game with some lovely passing play. Once gain it was great to see the lads keep passing the ball and fighting for every ball. We scored some great goals through Charlie Barden x3 and Mohamed, from back to front them all played very well but Man of the Match today is shared between our star striker Charlie Barden and Callum Kennedy Dunphy for their work rate, goals and assists.
