Ali left agitated by careless Old Boys

Old Southendian v Hutton – Essex Olympian League Premier Division – Garon Park – Report

Old Southendian 0-3 Hutton

Old Southendian boss, Altan Ali was left frustrated and agitated after witnessing his sides 3-0 Essex Olympian League Premier Division defeat at the hands of Hutton at Garon Park.

Brad Freeman bagged a brace for the visitors, while Tom Stephens was also on target as second-placed Hutton closed the gap on leaders Basildon Town to a single point, the Old Boys slipped to eleventh.

“I can’t criticise our battling qualities,” Ali told Yellow Sport.

“However, we make far too many defensive errors and it’s hurting us big time.”

Old Southendian return to Essex Olympian League Premier Division action on Saturday, February 5 when they face Ongar Town at the Lakeside Sports Ground (2:30pm).
