Blues v Stratford – looking back

As we prepare to wrap up the season with a visit by Stratford Town, Blues’ fan Andrew Bubien looks back at the programme for their only previous visit to Woodside Park.


The game was in the F A Cup third qualifying round on Saturday 14th October 2006. Blues had been exempt to the 2nd qualifying Round and had an excellent 3-1 win away to Sutton United.


A crowd of 489 at Woodside Park saw Southend United’s on loan striker Charles Ademeno score a goal in each half to give Blues a 2-0 win and an away tie at Dover Athletic in the final qualifying round.
As well as the programme, Andrew has dug out the match report from the game which was published in the following home programme.
