BOBBY Mason felt Canvey Island could not have given anymore in their FA Cup clash with Boreham Wood.

The Gulls suffered a 3-0 defeat against the National League side in Monday night’s second round tie at Park Lane.

But Mason, who pulled off a string of fine saves, feels Canvey should remain proud of their run.

“The boys have all put everything into this and we can’t really complain,” said the shot-stopper.

“It was a tough game and we always knew it was going to be tough.

“We set up the way we wanted and gave it everything.

“We tried not to hold back but dealing with people like Matt Rhead is always going to be a tough task.

“To be honest it felt like it was shot after shot after shot.

“But we just had to try and deal with it and then try to nick a goal at the other end.

“If we got one back at 2-0 then the game could have turned on its head.

“But we just have to take this on the chin.”

Mason can certainly be proud of his own performance which was praised by manager Mark Bentley.

And the goalkeeper was also pleased with how he played.

“It didn’t start off the best but I grew into the game,” said Mason.

“I put in a display that deserves to be up there with some of the best.

“I’ve been doing well this season but I just haven’t really had the break.

“Hopefully maybe now I will but it’s been unreal here and I really enjoy it.”

However, Mason is now keen to focus on the league as Canvey look to work their way up the Isthmian North table.

“We’ve put the FA Cup to one side now and we’ve got to really push on in the league and try to get that promotion spot,” he added.
