Town’s Under 18s defeated Southend United 4-1 in the FA Youth Cup 1st Round on Tuesday (03/11/2020), in a fixture that was played behind closed doors at Portman Road.
Adem Atay’s young Blues came out of the traps quickly and were 2-0 up after just 12 minutes, thanks to strikes from Harley Curtis and Liam Gibbs. Alfie Cutbush added a third a few minutes before the break, before the visitors from Essex pulled one back on the stroke of half-time.
Although the Shrimpers did put the home side under considerable pressure in the early stages of the second half, Cutbush completed his brace with Town’s fourth which put the tie to bed.
The reward for this victory is an away trip to Chelmsford City in Round Two, with the date and time yet to be confirmed at the time of writing.
