ADAM Peek believes the season is coming to an end at the wrong time for Southend Manor.

Manor will complete their Essex Senior League campaign by welcoming third-placed Walthamstow to Southchurch Park.

And Peek would like to see Manor, who have registered five wins from their last seven outings, end the season in style.

“The season is coming to an end too early for us,” said the Manor boss.

“It’s kind of frustrating because we know the season is ending this weekend and we didn’t have a game last weekend.

“In a way it would have been better for the last game to have been played last week so that we could all switch off.

“But we are in good form and it would be nice to go into the summer with a positive result.”

Manor had been threatened with relegation for extensive spells of the campaign, but the upturn in form has seen the club move up to 17th place in the standings.

Another three points could see Manor finish as high as 15th, but Peek believes his side could not have hoped for a more challenging clash on the last day of term.

“Walthamstow need a win to make sure they finish in the top three,” added Peek.

“That is a big incentive for them and we probably couldn’t have asked for a tougher game.

“It’s going to be a difficult game but we can finish the season two places higher than we are at the moment and that’s an incentive for us.

“It won’t be a typical end of season game and it will be competitive.”
