Southend United’s under 21s draw with Newport
Southend United’s under 21 team were held to a 1-1 draw at Newport County last afternoon.
The Welsh side took the lead in the first half when former Shrimpers striker Craig Reid, who recently returned to the League Two club, fired home.
But Blues hit back after the break and equalised when Micky Demetriou netted an own goal to ensure the game ended all square. And Southend’s under 21 coach Kevin Maher was happy his side were able to secure a share of the spoils in the Central League clash.
