Welcome to Prawnzone
SOUTHEND 0 BOREHAM NINE 1
OOF! Not the start to the season that Shrimpers wanted. New forward Hyde went to hyde in the treatment room after after just ten minutes. (he is the replacement for Dalby who played 40+ games last season).
First half and Newton puts the Wood ahead on 28mins with a move which the Wood manager says they had worked out beforehand (Thanks Brunty!).
Huff and puff from the Blues but halfo 0-1
Second half and Powell comes on and immediately livens things up, Ndlovu gets a second yellow for Wood on 72 but still no breakthrough, even after a straight red for Kelly-Evans reduced the Wood to 9 men.
Still powder puff up front and Prawnzone reporter Fish Walsh remarks that ” we need to strengthen at the back, up front, and midfield” …..
