Dagenham U18s 0 Southend U18s 3

8 October 2012

Southend United U18s kicked off their Youth Alliance Cup campaign with a 3-0 win on Saturday.

The Blues youngsters stretched their unbeaten run to six matches with a 3-0 away win against the Daggers.

A Jason Williams’ brace and a header from Josh Banton was enough to put their hosts to the sword.

Williams opened the Blues account after just seven minutes when he forced Kane Farrell’s corner past Daggers keeper Ollie Bowles.

Foper Coker then had his free kick saved after 25 minutes in the only real other chance of the first half.

Blues went close to a second strike after half time when Williams’ half volley was tipped onto the post after Jack Payne had been tackled.

However, Williams did add a second goal after 58 minutes when he swept home Farrell’s cross.

Coker was then denied by Bowles at the near post before United put the fixture beyond doubt in the 69th minute when Josh Banton headed Coker’s right-wing cross to make it 3-0.

Ted Smith, who was a virtual spectator throughout, was called into action seven minutes from time to parry a shot from Timothy Monsheju before 60 seconds later he preserved Blues clean sheet for a second time turning Monsheju’s snap-shot around the post.

Southend: Smith, Jeffery, Farrell, Edwards, Banton, Tatham, King, Coker, Williams, Bridge, Payne.
