Difficult first game but a great win for us. A long journey is so much better when you get three points.


To our loyal Southend fans, I think it’s our season. The squad looks strong and hungry and with you behind us it can only end in success. Great result, exactly what we needed. Top support as per usual from you guys.


What a win. Great result and so good to be back playing. Fans were great.


Good to get the three points on the board.


First game of the season and first three points.



A good start with plenty of positives. Clifford was very good and very impressed with Weston.


Good first half performance and fully deserved the win. Thought Clifford bossed the game.


Great positive start for SUFC. Unlucky not to score more. Clifford man of the match, very impressive. Weston also impressed me as well.


First half we looked sharp and dangerous. Going forward second half was more of a battle but we won that. Great display in midfield from Conor Clifford. Totally justified his selection.


Star man Clifford. But also impressive showings from the centre backs. Barney looked sharp. Gave away too many free kicks though.


Clifford bossed the game. Weston very useful at both holding up the ball and getting in behind. Good start.


This is the start of what is going to be a successful season for SUFC.


I say it every year but this year I believe, promotion.


A good start to the season and thought we deserved the win. Clifford very impressive, along with Weston. Good to get the clean sheet too.


Fantastic result for Blues’ first game of the new season. Feel bad for Barry Corr, he should have been more aggressive with his penalty. Good Luck to Accrington for the rest of the season.
