  1. Memory Lane No more 9-2 Cup wins there then .....

    Nearly always sad to see a ground in this state. A few other good fins there as well as the 9-2. https://twitter.com/ks_mikey/status/953761827011416065

    Just seen this report about Gillinghams (now former) vice chairman http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-4860630/Gillingham-FC-vice-chairman-faces-60-years-jail.html looks like someone is dodgy, likely to give our rivals some even bigger financial headaches. All not as it seems!
  3. Football on the radio

    Daggers are playing Braintree tonight. Any idea if it's possible to listen outside Essex? I live in London but there's **** all else to do so i fancy a listen. Getting my teeth drilled is preferable to 606

  8. Save Grassroots Petition

    Good afternoon. Some of you may have seen the @savegrassroots account on Twitter to force the Premier League, through broadcasting fees, to properly back grassroots football. Costs of everything are going up every year and local governments can no longer fund it. 100,000 people hung up their...

    Fed up with being Billy no mates!!

    Morning all, When BBC 606 dropped off the perch I migrated across to JA606 but the Southend page just didn't happen. Shame, but there you go. Now I've retired I have a bit more creative time to waste so hopefully Shrimpers Zone can fill those empty hours between the next job on the wife's list.
