    Was that stadium intended to be where the Greyhound Retail Park now is (and where Southend had previously played way back when?)

    I'm not sure where that ground was going to be built. We used to publish nice photos of stadiums that we were going to build which would be a shock to the landowners as they were always on land that we didn't even own.

    A bit like now then as Southend Council still have a deal to make with RM over some parts of it.

    Some things never change. What surprises me is the club don't seem to notice that fans aren't wetting their knickers at the latest drawings of 'New Stadium - Mark 48'

    That's the Garon Park stadium plan.....Uncle Vic had fallen out with the council big time and they showed their true colours by clearly showing that the towns football club wasn't wanted.If built it would have been one of the first of the new breed of stadium which has become the norm.As it is we are now one of the only ones with a blue fence!!

    TSNB quickly puts up another photo before this wonderful thread becomes hi-jacked by the new stadium talk.

    Well played. And what a team that was. Now remind me what stadium is that.

    That team picture was taken away at Chester probably at start of 1966/7 season when we played there on 7th Sept. The stand in the background is the old main stand at Sealand Road with the open terrace in the background. By the time I went to Sealand Road in the 80's they had built a new main stand.
    If you look when we played at Southport at the end of that season we had an emblem on the shirts. In the team photo there is no emblem.

    Always if I think of naming a team the first three names are - Roberts - Bentley - Birks, in fact that whole team was responsible for my supporting the Blues. What ten year old wouldn't swear allegiance to a team that had the elegance of Firmani and 'Rampaging Ray Smith' upfront.
