For people like me that aren't at Park Lane enjoying the football tonight...
10 Minutes Lee Boylan put the Gulls 1-0 up on with a header, setup by Jeff Minton. <img src="/images/graemlins/grin.gif" alt="" />
22 Minutes Tes Bramble equalises from a Kevin Maher corner.
27 Minutes Neil Gregory nearly heads into his own net after a Southend set-piece but it only hit the crossbar and Potter dives on the loose ball.
43 Minutes A Danny Potter punt down the pitch, lands to Jeff Minton who pounces on a Southend hesitation, rounds Flahaven and pokes home for Canvey's 2nd. <img src="/images/graemlins/grin.gif" alt="" />
46 Minutes A Jay Smith scorcher is Southend's equaliser to make it 2-2 just 21 seconds into the 2nd Half.
59 Minutes Jay Smith hits the bar after some good overlapping play by the Shrimpers.
76 Minutes David Theobald sent off, but the Referee changes his mind after re-reading his notes and issues just a Yellow. - Referee sounds like a [****!!****]!!!
77 Minutes Canvey Substitution: Kevin Dobinson replaces Ty Gooden. On a personal note Tes Bramble is either a wimp or a cheating diver, you were there make your mind up! <img src="/images/graemlins/grin.gif" alt="" />
87 Minutes Mark Warren sent-off for dragging Lee Boylan down to the ground. Southend down to 10 men.
90 Minutes + 2 Bit of handbags involving Tes Bramble and A Canvey player - Referee doesn't have a clue who it was, neither does the Assistant. 3 Minutes of added time, signalled.
90 Minutes + 5 Another scorcher from Jay Smith, gives Southend a final minute winner and sets up a tie against Lincoln City in the 2nd Round at Roots Hall.
All in all from what I've heard it sounded like a great game with an electric atmosphere. But it seems as if the Professionals' fitness and full-time training came through in the end against tired legs despite being a man down in the dying minutes!!
Well Done Canvey Island FC! Lots of money made, publicity created and time to focus on trying to win the League. <img src="/images/graemlins/icon14.gif" alt="" />
