Exiled Shrimper

Oct 25, 2003
Southend United's Under-18s won 3-2 this morning at Boots & Laces against Gillingham, their first home League win of the season. Jack Morris gave Blues the lead with a free-kick eight minutes in, Stuart O'Keefe doubled the lead on the half-hour and, after the visitors pulled level with two goal either side of half-time, trialist Harry Crawford (formerly a schoolboy with Tottenham Hostpur) netted the winner on 70 minutes. A full report will appear in the usual places (Shrimpers Trust website, official website) over the weekend.

Rhys Henry was back from his work experience spell with BGB Southern League Premier Division Cheshunt, but centre-back Tom Hopkins has re-joined the non-League strugglers. They lost 2-0 today at Mangotsfield United.

Luke Thurlbourne remains on work experience at St Albans City, who continued their recent revival with a 4-1 home win in Blue Square Conference South against Basingstoke Town. The midfielder's display, as he recorded another 90 minutes, was described by the St Albans & Harpenden Review as "eye-catching", and he almost scored when the Basingstoke 'keeper tipped his low shot around the post after a one-two with Paul Hakim. The only sour point was his fourth caution of the St Albans campaign.

James Lindie was heavily involved in Harlow Town's midweek draw with high-flying Horsham. The Hawks drew 1-1, with the striker almost setting up James Bunn for an early goal, then collecting a booking for a tough tackle on 36 minutes. He continued to pose a threat throughout his 90 minutes on the field, with Bunn grabbing a late leveller. David Obaze sat on the bench, but was expected to make a return today with former Shrimper Leo Roget out as they lost 1-0 to Ashford Town (Middlesex).

Finally, Nathan McDonald was today named the Shrimpers Trust SUFC Youth Team Player of the Month for February after a good month between the sticks, keeping a clean sheet behind an inexperienced team at Barnet in a 0-0 draw. McDonald received his award at half-time in today's 2-0 League One win over Luton Town.
