The first team travelled to Southend Manor in the FA Vase and drew 1-1 after Extra Time. Some changes were made to the starting line-up that lost against Stotfold during the week with Tony Sabag, Martin Flannery, Tom Milton and Jermeel Jno-Baptiste all coming back into the side. We started brightly with Zaine Gangadeen, Jermeel Jno-Baptiste and Ivan Machedo all looking dangerous going forward, especially in wide areas. However, our final ball often let us down when we got into good attacking positions, and it took a set piece for us to break the deadlock, with Ivan Machedo finishing with a powerful header from a Nick Chrysanthou corner just before half time to give us a 1-0 lead at the break. However, within 5 minutes of the restart, Southend Manor scored to make it 1-1. This sparked an eventful period in the game, as they then had a man sent off for an off-the-ball incident. We made a change with Mustafa Mutlak replacing Marting Flannery to give us some fresh legs going forward, before Southend were then reduced to 9 men for a two footed tackle inside our penalty area. We then got on top and started to dominate possesion, but again our final ball often let us down when in good attacking positions. Alan Murray replaced Gustavo Angel-Tamayo to again try and spark some more energy into our play, but we could not break the deadlock. We had Nathan Munroe sent off towards the end of the game for a second bookable offence, and the score ended 1-1 after 90 minutes. Extra Time was similar to the second half as we had possession but could not break down a resolute Southend defence. Our hosts also had a couple of chances on the counter attack, but neither side could get the all important winner and the game ended 1-1, with the replay to be played this Thursday 8 October.
Line-up: Mann, Sabag, Flannery (Mutlak), Milton, Bowen, Angel-Tamayo (Murray), Munroe, Chrysanthou, Machedo, Gangadeen, Jno-Baptiste
