ECFC v Southend United

Saturday, 14th December, 1968 Football League
Southend United (home), lost 2-1

For the second season in succession the United completed a League "double" over us with this latest win at St. James' Park, and although some thought they were fortunate to have taken both points we cannot complain after failing to take our chances early in the game.

Gary Moore put Southend ahead but David Pleat equalised. City had a goal dis allowed when Dermot Curtis headed home, but Southend later took command and got the winner in the closing seconds, with a 25-yard shot from Eddie Clayton,

Team-Shearing; Smyth, Blain; Craw ford, Harvey, Newman; Corr, Balson, Cur tis: Kirkham, Pleat.
