Defeat On Essex Coast
Cold Afternoon Loss
The team made the long journey down to the Essex coast on a cold Saturday afternoon.
AFC started the game well, but went a goal down after a scrappy free kick was bundled in. The visitors let in two further goals after their defence got in a muddle and tried to play the offside trap.
HT - Southend Manor 3-0 AFC Sudbury
The second half was a much better one for Sudbury as they came out of the blocks ready and pumped to perform better.
They pulled a goal back after a great first touch from Nathan Read that took him past one player, then quick feet to take it past a sliding defender and then a calm finish.
The home side however delivered another good through ball and from it they scored a fourth goal to win by a three goal margin.
Squad - Horne, Sayer, Berkane, R Cornish, M Walker, Carrigan, Vincent, Tatum, Downey, Read, Graham
