SOUTHEND United youngster Sewa Marah has been tipped to have a ‘big future’ ahead of him.

Marah, who is on loan with Isthmian North side Aveley, scored a stoppage time equaliser as the Millers secured a 2-2 draw with Dereham Town on Saturday.

The teenager also had a goal ruled out for offside early in the second half as he proved to be a menace for the Dereham defence.

And Aveley boss James Webster has been impressed with the attacker since he made the temporary move to Parkside last month.

Webster said: “He’s a good lad with a great attitude. He works hard, has an eye for goal and is very positive.

“When I became manager we were struggling to score but he plays with no pressure and wants to impress.

“He chipped in with a goal at the end and was unlucky to have the other one disallowed.

“I think he has got a big future ahead of him.

“What I like about him is that he is honest.

“Sometimes players that play in his position want to do all the nice stuff and be positive but don’t want to do the ugly stuff.

“He is an exception to that. He wants to track back and he wants to work hard.

“He wants to listen and be coached and we’re pleased to have him at the moment.”

Marah has now scored three goals in as many starts for the Millers, having also netted on his debut against Tilbury and in the defeat to Cheshunt.
