ALEX KENYON | 250 Shrimps Appearances

29 September 2020

ALEX Kenyon was happy to see his 250th appearance for the Shrimps end in victory at Southend.

Kenyon reached the 250 landmark on Saturday played his part in the Shrimps’ second league win of the season.

The midfielder, who signed for the Shrimps in 2013, said: "It was a good feeling and I was very happy to reach the 250 mark and the win made it all the better.

"I’m really pleased with the achievement and I could have got a goal too but in the end I probably did Southend a favour and cleared the danger.

"They scored early which was disappointing for us all again but we grew into the game and to come from a goal behind to win it was encouraging.

"We had a few good chances in the first half but we came back into it in the second half and I think we thoroughly deserved the win.’'

Looking back at the 250 games he said: “There have been a lot of highs.

"To score two against Portsmouth was one of the highlights as I don’t score too many and of course staying up at Coventry on the last day of the season was a memorable occasion.

"To be honest though I’m pleased with all the games.

“I’ve always wanted to be a footballer and I’m in the dream job.

“It's all I ever wanted to do. I always believed it would happen and to have played for as long as I have at this level has been brilliant and long may it continue.''
