PREMIER League managers may often moan about fixture congestion - but Southend United goalkeeper Harry Seaden could definitely not be accused of feeling the same way.

For the highly-rated shot-stopper played two games on Tuesday, lining up for the Shrimpers’ under 23 side against AFC Wimbledon in the afternoon before playing for Great Wakering Rovers in their clash with Canvey Island on the same night.

And Seaden found it tough going.

“Playing twice in the same day was tough, but it gave me valuable game time and experience,” said the youngster.

“I played two games in a day once before when I was at Rayleigh Boys but apart from that game I normally play the one but it was fine.”

Seaden was beaten 4-1 with the Shrimpers but feels the team will learn from playing against an experienced Dons side.

“They had some really good players in their team, including Joe Pigott who got a hat-trick but we will learn from that,” said Seaden.

“We will take those lessons into the next game.”

But Seaden’s match in the evening was far more positive as Wakering beat Canvey 2-1.

“It was a great win against tough opposition,” said the keeper.

“The three points were exactly what we needed and hopefully it will give us a boost.”
