Old Southendian 4-3 Leigh Town

Altan Ali spoke positively after witnessing his Old Southendian side edge out Leigh Town in a seven-goal thriller at Garon Park.

The Old Boys led 4-1 at the interval in their latest pre-season encounter. – Mitch Ali, Matt Tonking, Ed Gould and Nick Henesy were on target for the home side. And despite a spirited Town fightback thanks to a Brodie Horne brace and a Dan Driscoll effort, Ali’s charges held firm to triumph by four goals to three

“We had a number of players coming in for their first game today, and that took its toll late on,” the Old Boys boss told Yellow Sport.

“But we fully deserved to get our first win under our belts. We played some really nice football and scored some well-worked team goals.
