Youth team show how it should be done

13 Jan

With the Southend United first team struggling, it has been up to Ricky Duncan’s under 18 side to provide the pride this season, and they have once more exceeded expectations by knocking out Championship side Coventry in the 3rd round of the FA Youth Cup.
Blues fell behind to an early penalty before a 20-yard exocet from winger Hicham Abdellah levelled the scores just before the break.
And a horrible mistake by the visiting goalkeeper let in Julian Okai, who tapped the second into an empty net after a backpass had rolled underneath the custodian’s studs.
The mat finish was applied by 6ft 4in striker Duane Ofori-Acheampong, who headed in a set-piece last on.
Southend will now travel to Derby County in the 4th round.
