13 A Southend 7 Dungarvan 3
Good performance here from the lads where they cemented their position at the top of the table against a strong Dungarvan side. We were in control for most of match but gave away three goals through some sloppy defending which will have to be addressed or the league will slip away from us. Goals on the night, Kailum with two, Jimmy with two and a hat rick from Callum.
15A Southend United 3 Carrick United 2
Great win for this squad who record back to back victories .What a comeback here after going two down early on to eventually score three which came courtesy of a superb Devon Keogh hat trick. Special mention as well to Kyle Cooke who saved a penalty, great all round performance from the team.
16 A Tramore 5 Southend 3
Good performance from by Under 16s against Tramore We went one nil up with a great team move and a sweet finish from Ben.Our luck changed after that and Tramore came back into the game and scored a couple of quick goals. At the break we went three one 1 down, some inspiring words from Eamon saw the lads lift their game and we got a second from Ben after good work from Daniel and Callum. We forced the game after this and following a great corner from Dylan Rowe, Alvo was on hand to coolly finish the breaking ball, unfortunately the effort the team put in to drawing us level saw us run out of steam and Tramore went on to score two late goals. Well done to all the players’ great effort by all players’ special mentions to Kyle and Marvellous who stepped in when we were short, both lads had great games.
11 Red Bohs v Southend
11A played two games here against Bohs in which we won one and lost the other. It was great for the lads to get a hard game against a good Bohs team and maybe with a bit more luck and better defending we might of forced a draw on the plus side it was great also to see young Mikey and Nicole getting a run and playing very well .Nicole was unlucky near the end not to pop up with the equaliser, they will learn a lot from this game our goal scorers on the day were Charlie Barden and Mohammed. Also well done to Brandon for refereeing the game for us and I think Player of the match will go to Nicole for such a young girl to come into a tough game like that and show no fear was brilliant to see, well done Nicole.
14A Ferrybank 1 Southend United 0
This squad suffered their first defeat against a good home side. We started brightly and were unlucky not to go in front when Calum hit the crossbar only for us to concede a sloppy goal two minutes later from a free kick. As much as we tried we just couldn’t break down their defence and right at the death Calum was denied again when his shot hit the post. Great all round team performance with Sean, Rhys and Ethan having magnificent games. So we have two home games to see out his league and I’m pretty sure these lads will give everything to the cause.
12A Bohs 0 Southend 2
Good away win in Poleberry against a good Bohs side. We opened the scoring after 13 seconds when Azeez poked home from close range after a mix up in the defence. We had a couple more chances before half time but couldn’t take them. We scored our second goal t with ten mins to go when Radeem chased a high through ball and beat the keeper to it with his head. Best for Southend today were Darragh,Radeem and Adam Queally.
