    AGM 3/9/09 - Full Report

    Okay, here we go - it's 8 pages long so I'm not sure how it's going to break down on here, please bear with me and refrain from any comments until you get to what is obviously the last page! Full notes of Southend Utd’s AGM – 3rd September 2009 Meeting held at Southend Council Chamber...

    Online Team Diary/Meeting Scheduler

    Does anyone know of any free online meeting/diary/calender software, where multiple users can gain access to and is secured by a password etc. Basically, I want my freelance team to be able to see where everybody is, at meetings etc and be able to add in appointments when required. I've seen...
  3. Ref Watch ... Friday night

    Friday night's game sees the appointment of, in my opinion, a very decent referee in Mick Russell, from St Albans. His season has been very much stop-start with at least two breaks for injuries but he has done a couple of games since his latest comeback. A very steady official, this will be...
  4. Ref Watch .. Wright man for the Col U derby ?

    The referee for Saturday's derby match is Kevin Wright from Yaxley near Peterborough. His last Southend appointment was away at Scunthorpe earlier this season. This will be his 6th Southend League match in his 6th season as a League referee, although he missed virtually all of last season...
  5. Ref Watch Referees and things .....

    The general tirade of abuse directed towards the, on this occasion, hapless Mr Ward seems to have run over a couple of threads so I'll put my response in a seperate one. Whilst most of the criticism is undoubtedly justified, there is included amongst it, a number of inaccuracies and...
  6. Ref Watch ...... Bristol Rovers

    This Saturday's rather important game brings Gavin Ward from Oxted to Roots Hall for his fourth visit. This is his second season as a League referee. His three previous games were the JPT defeat on pens by Dagenham, the 2-1 win against Hartlepool (who had Sam Collins sent off in that match)...

    Tilly and Brush - going nowhere

    Oh my God - yes it's (yet) another Steve Tilson thread... and I would like to say that in making this I am only too well aware that this is a public forum and everyone is entitled to their opinion. But Christ there is a lot of tripe spouted on here. OK, lets start just by recapping on two...
  8. Ref Watch .... Hartlepool away

    Man in charge at Hartlepool will be primary school headteacher from Horsforth near Leeds, Jon Moss. In his 4th season as a League referee, he has yet to take charge of a Southend match. A reasonably highly rated official who gets plenty of Championship matches, he will let the game flow if...
  9. Ref Watch ..... Cup replay

    The referee for Tuesday is Iain Williamson from Berkshire who is in his 6th season as a League referee. Played non-league for Walton & Hersham until injury forced him into refereeing. We have seen quite a lot of him, this being his ninth Southend match in charge. Seven of the previous eight...
  10. Ref Watch ..... Colchester

    This Saturday sees a second attempt in 3 weeks by Mick Russell, from St Albans, to get to Roots Hall. He was originally appointed for the Stockport game and pulled out through injury to be replaced by Trevor Kettle. He is (usually) a very decent referee. A very steady official, this will be...
  11. Ref Watch ..... Scunthorpe away

    Our referee on Tuesday should be Kevin Wright from Cambridgeshire. His last Southend appointment was last year's Good Friday game when he was a "no show" through injury. In fact he missed virtually all of last season through injury but seems to be up and running okay this season. This will be...
  12. Ref Watch ..... Stockport County

    After the excesses of Keith Hill last weekend, this Saturday brings an altogether different type of official to the Hall. Man in charge is the (usually) very decent referee Mick Russell from St Albans. He is a very steady official and this will be his 5th Southend match and his third at Roots...
  13. Ref Watch v Orient on Friday .....

    This is the "official" one. Beware pale imitations, especially when they come from bitter eastenders and contain large doses of sour grapes. Friday’s match against Orient will be refereed by Grant Hegley. An experienced official, this will be his 11th competitive match at Roots Hall (won 7...

    Ron Martin - the statement

    Right, let's clear a few things up straight away - Contrary to popular belief, I haven't been avoiding the subject all day - quite the opposite, I’ve been itching to get on here and finally say my piece. Truth is, I too lost out on a lot of work this morning, and the meeting was over 2 1/2...
  15. Ref Watch .... Playoffs

    They have stuck with their policy of giving the first legs to experienced Football League referees and the crucial second legs to the SG referees. For our home game, we have a return visit from Paul Taylor. Possibly his last ever match at this level (unless he gets an extra year after normal...
  16. what Leeds think of us -

    View GalleryA RUN-DOWN on Leeds United's opponents tonight The Gaffer Steve Tilson. Tilson steered the Shrimpers from League Two to the Championship in two seasons, but they have not recovered quickly from their relegation last season. Tilson was forced to part with striker Freddy Eastwood and...

    Fixtures on your PC

    Hopefully this posting won't cause any upsets. I have created a file containing all of our league (and the 1st round Coca Cola Cup match) fixtures for my personal use that can be imported into MS Outlook as appointments. It definitely works in Outlook 2003 and Outlook XP and from what...

    Who will get these jobs

    At least these seven managerial jobs are available. I predict (based on gut feeling, and some media reports) the following: Middlesbrough - El Veg Charlton - Peter Taylor Ipswich - Plankinson Sunderland - (a bit of a wild card, this one) Gary Johnson Forest - Martin O'Neill Millwall - Mick...

    Ron Martin

    A few people have doubted Ron Martin during his time at Roots Hall. Being from a Property Developing background maybe some concern was understandable. However, I hope we all now realise he really is a good man who is great for Southend United. Under John Main, we were goining nowhere but out...
