7th Win Marred by Injury

A 3-0 win however the game was abandoned on 80 mins with the Southend Manor keeper suffering a serious injury, It is believed the result will stand

On a fairly chilly afternoon at Southchurch Park, Southend Manor welcomed in-form Redbridge in another Essex Senior League encounter on Non-League Day.

The first began with the visitors edging the early-going though 13 minutes in, it was almost bad luck for the visitors as from full-back Lee Scott’s right-wing cross, Manor’s Robbie Norris scuffed his shot at the near post. The visitors did get into their stride somewhat though strikes on goal from front two Brian Moses and Calvin Poku failed to find the target.

The Motormen did take the lead eleven minutes before the break as a long-ball found Poku in space and then one-on-one with Manor goalkeeper Liam Pitts, buried his low strike into the left corner. Redbridge led at the break as Manor couldn’t quite find their rhythm going forward though did battle quite well against the formidable Motormen front four.

Half-Time: Southend Manor 0 – 1 Redbridge

Seven minutes into the second half, Moses’ shot was saved by Pitts, A minute later, Manor forward Bayley Newell’s drive went wide of the left-side post. The vistors extended their lead on 61 minutes as after Moses was involved in the build-up , winger Reside Coxi-Sebastfao struck home from close range. Ten minutes later, Manor substitute Charlie Barlow’s shot called Redbridge goalkeeper Lewis Greene into action though he made the save. Soon after, the visitors were three goals up as after Pitts had denied Moses’ effort, winger Joshua Hutchinson tucked in the re-bound. Newell then tested Greene again with a goal-bound effort which the visiting custodian saved with his foot.

With ten minutes remaining, there was a coming together as Redbridge forward Moses and home goalkeeper Pitts challenged for the ball on the edge of the goalkeeper’s area which left both players down. However, it soon became apparent that the ‘keeper had clearly come off worse for wear and the match was halted while an ambulance was called. I must mention that Moses stayed with the stricken stopper for some time, before and after the paramedic crew arrived. Given the situation, the referee eventually called the match off with ten minutes still to play. Pitts suffered a suspected broken leg. I sincerely wish Liam the very best in his recovery and I am sure the entire Non-League community would also echo that sentiment.
