SOUTHEND ........0 MORE­CAMBE ....1

out of play be­fore rolling his low shot home.

Up un­til then how­ever, the home-side had been on top with Ryan Cress­well head­ing a right wing free-kick from Freddy East­wood inches over the cross­bar.

Shrimpers striker Gavin Tom­lin also had an ef­fort well saved by More­cambe goal­keeper Barry Roche be­fore Barry Corr fired over from close range.

But, af­ter Flem­ing’s goal, Southend strug­gled to cre­ate chances and it was More­cambe sub­sti­tute Chris Hol­royd who came clos­est to scor­ing from long range.

“An­drew never gave up for the goal and that summed up our per­for­mance,” said Shrimps boss Jim Bent­ley.

“We seem to be a bit of a bo­gey side for Southend and I don’t think they’ve ever beaten us. “But we were a bit sloppy early on and they missed a cou­ple of good chances but af­ter we went in front I re­ally thought that we were very good.

“We de­fended well and I can’t praise the play­ers enough for that dis­play at the back.

“I don’t think Southend re­ally had a shot in the sec­ond half and it’s cer­tainly a nice, pos­i­tive way for our sea­son to end.”
