An early goal from Mick Dwyer after 2 minutes had hopes raised but Southend proved their worth as league champions and got a hold on the game. A golden chance fell Scobys way but the keeper saved. Gerry Walsh had a goal disallowed for offside which would have setting things up nicely but Southends persistence paid off with them forcing an equalizer through an og. Half time gave the lads a chance to recoup but again Southend dominated and wore the lads down to see out the game 3-1. A disappointing result but these older boys should be well proud of their season, more than holding their own in the league and also reaching a cup semi final.
