During this time of fixture postponement, the competition was set up as a way of engaging supporters through this difficult and unprecedented period and to bring clubs and fans together.

Blues were represented by Southend United eSports player Daniel and he guided them onto a comfortable 3-1 win over the Pirates, a result that was a repeat of our “real game” against Bristol Rovers on Saturday 7th March. 

The victory means that Dan and Blues are placed into the pot for the next round of the competition. 

A total of 128 clubs entered the competition and we’ve already seen some giant killings in the tournament with the likes of Walsall knocking out Italian giants Roma, MK Dons beat Eredivisie side Heracles Almelo and there’s sure to be more upsets as the games continue.
