Under 13 league
Southend 1 Villa 1
Very tough game here in difficult conditions. We were rather fortunate to come away with a point as Villa were the better team for much of the match. We had some good play out the pitch but when we got into the final third we failed to work their goalkeeper which was very disappointing. Villa took a deserved lead in the first half and it was half way through second half when we equalised through Adam Queally. We had a lot of the ball then without troubling their goalkeeper and it was Villa who should have won the game when they hit the crossbar late on. Well done to our visitors on a very tough game and we look forward to meeting them again later in season.

What a game!, schoolboy football at its best. In a game which took many twists and turns the only winners here were the spectators. We went one down and responded with three goals to lead at half time, however the visitors got two quick strikes to even up the game, Try as they might both teams went in search of the winner, however time ran out and both teams will rue missed chances, Goals today from Sam, Jack and Anthony. Well done lads.
