  1. Mason Wells

    Blimey ! Mason was near the finish line when the Boston bomb exploded,he was in Paris near the terrorist atrocities ,he was injured in Belgium by the blast. Lucky or unlucky ?

    Terry Mason called up to help England U17's

    Congratulations to our goalkeeping coach who has been called up to assist with the England u17 side. He's been working for the club for 8 years and helped with the development of our goalkeepers and obviously done a great job with Dan Bentley and Ted Smith. Also we have Harry Seaden who has...
  4. Terry Mason

    Anyone have any idea what going on, just got the news that Paul Smith left and he would take some of the training sessions when Terry Mason wasn't here, as he is only part time, will he go full time now.

    Terry Mason

    Goalie coach, anyone know where he is? Wasn't warming the keepers up at Chesterfield or Wycombe and not in the team photo. Just seems odd!

  8. Ref Watch ...... Chesterfield H

    Saturday's match against Chesterfield sees 4th year referee, Roger East from Salisbury, in charge and making his second visit of the season. He achieved some success as an Assistant Referee being appointed to the 2004 Cup Final and a couple of playoff finals. Wasn't uniformly popular...
  9. Ref Watch .... Gillingham JPT

    Tuesday's match sees Gavin Ward from Oxted returning to Roots Hall for the first time since he mishandled the match against Gillingham nearly a year ago. This is his fourth season as a League referee. He has refereed 5 home matches and I think he has got progressively worse in each one. His...
  10. Ref Watch ... MK Dons (abridged version)

    Limited access, so a very brief note. Referee is Select Group official Lee Mason, a regular on Match of the Day, usually doing something to upset Liverpool. He was in charge of that wonderful 45 mins at Colchester a few years back when we raced to a 3-0 lead (actually he was in charge for the...
  11. Ref Watch ..... Swindon

    Man in charge of Saturday's crucial (aren't they all now?) match is Police Officer David Phillips from Chichester, West Sussex refereeing in his second season. This will be his third Southend game and his second Southend home game; his only previous Southend home match being the match against...

    Slipperduke Review of 2009

    Welcome, my very dear friends, to a very special presentation. It's that time of year again, you see. A chance to sift through the wreckage of twelve months of English football, to reward the noble and to eviscerate the terrible. Bigger than the Ballon D'or, more prestigious than the PFA, these...
  13. Ref Watch ... Franchise Friday

    The man in charge is Darren Deadman who comes from Chatteris, Cambridgeshire, and is a civil servant in Peterborough. In his fifth season as a League referee he is just one feisty match away from 500 yellow cards. He is on 494 - will he go for it tomorrow night ? His red card count is above...
  14. Ref Watch ..... Tranmere

    Or perhaps this should be a refblog ? Anyway, referee Dean Whitestone from Northampton, in his third season as a Football League referee, makes his fourth visit to Roots Hall. His most recent visit kicked off the season with our win over Peterborough when three visitors were cautioned. Prior to...
  15. Ref Watch ..... Leeds

    Tuesday night sees Pat Miller, from Bedfordshire, refereeing his second ever Southend match in his 4th season as a League referee. His previous game was as a late replacement in last year's home draw with Swansea (5 cautions including, obviously, McCormack). A short, short-haired and, for my...

  17. Ref Watch - Forest

    After a very decent performance by Rob Lewis on Saturday, Tuesday night sees Paul Melin refereeing us for the third time this season, the first at home. Nothing to say about Paul Melin, that wasn't said a few weeks back when he officiated in our 4-1 win at Bournemouth. His 4th season as a...
