Haven't time for a big write-up for this one, but our third tie pits two spectacular goals against each other.

With home advantage is Billericay Blue's nomination of David Crown's legendary goal against Wigan. I think this might be the equivalent of a fishing trip tale, as every time I remember this goal it seems to get better and better. If someone has it on video please put it up on youtube so I can see if it is as good as I remember it to be.

He is up against Damon Searle who is nominated by Dave Smith's Love Child. I'm not sure what Searle goal it was exactly because the last game of the season goal was against Mansfield in his first season, and his last goal for Southend was against Rushden, which IIRC was a cracking volley. I'm pretty sure it's already up on youtube if someone wants to dig it out.

So time for some more reminiscing and some blow by blow descriptions of those goals.
