An excellent team display in what was a very difficult morning for football with a horrendous swirling wind to contend with. We took the lead midway through the first half when josh McLoughlin raced onto a Darragh Conway through pass to finish with a lob. The ever dangerous Josh was then brought down outside the box a few minutes later and up stepped Darragh Aylward to score a free kick that Ronaldo would be proud of. We could have added to our tally with Oision, Anil and Darragh Aylward going close but the Southend keeper was in fine form again. Great effort from all 11 players involved in tough conditions.
