Dru Yearwood continued his comeback from injury by playing 60 minutes in a behind closed doors game.
The 18-year-old has been sidelined since the end of last season with a hamstring injury.
But as he stepped up his return to full fitness, the midfielder was pleased to get some minutes under his belt on Monday afternoon.
“It was really good,” said Yearwood . “I was happy it was here [at Roots Hall] as well instead of just at the training ground because it gave me a chance to get used to the surroundings again.
“I feel like I’m getting better each day, technically and my decision-making as well.
“I understand the gaffer not wanting to push me too much and make me miss out more games.
“Hopefully I can get back involved as soon as possible.”
