The Football League Paper - - THE FA CUP SEMI-FINAL -

SOUTHEND stop­per Daniel Bent­ley has ad­mit­ted it’s ‘a real hon­our’ to have earned a place in the club’s his­tory books.

The 21-year-old made it a club record 11 home clean sheets in a row in Tues­day’s 2-0 win against New­port County.

He’s beaten the pre­vi­ous record run put to­gether by Mervyn Caw­ston in 1981.

Bent­ley, who has not let in a goal at Roots Hall since Oc­to­ber, said:“I was not aware of the record un­til re­cently so to be men­tioned along­side some­one like Mervyn, who has been a fam­ily friend for a long time, is fan­tas­tic. It is hum­bling and a real hon­our.”
