  1. Breaking News Theo up for PFA Fans' Player of the Month

    I know he's got next to no chance of winning with Grigg and ex-Shrimper Charlie Mulgrew in there, but wouldn't it be great for the lad and his confidence going into next season if all shrimpers got behind him and pushed him towards the top of the vote? It ends on Thursday, all details here...

    Zone Update Thank you all

    Well this has been a season of ups and downs, but we are still in League 1 which after the fiasco of PB.........SCP saved us. As always we would not be here without so much help. I cannot thank enough our sponsors, BTMK, First for Mortages, Trade Price Cars, Outstanding Branding and of course...

    Pre-Match Thread MK Dons v Southend Under 23 Central Cup Final tonight

    Anyone going tonight? 7.30pm kick off at MK Dons £5 adults, £1 under 18's. As usual nothing about the match on the official site. I expect we will put quite a young side out. Maybe Wabo will play?

    Elvis or Dimi ?

    I've been so impresed with Elvis since he broke through with Phil Brown. He's a real SCP kind of player too, fantastic mobility, seems his attitude is good, has real pace and covers his centre backs intelligently. A ball winner that doesnt sell himself, whereas as much as i like Jason Dimi he...

    Who will be Skipper next season?

    This season we have had Anton Ferdinand, Ben Coker and John White all wearing the Captains's arm band. Who do you reckon will lead the side out next season? I'm betting JW, but this assumes his contract is renewed. Any thoughts?

    Announced by the player on Twitter. The arrogance of the modern footballer to pre-empt the clubs official announcement.

    Contract talk

    It’s that time. There’s been a lot of talk about a clear out under CP and with rumours about Wright and Wordsworth it’s clear that he’s going to be ruthless. Here’s my take, though it’s a bit of a mix of what I predict CP might do and what I would do, though of course finances, etc., come into...

    The ball boy experience

    Never seen a thread about the day out with SUFC for the ball boys, so i thought i'd write one. I joined my boy's team Benfleet Villa under 14s with SUFC staff today. The boys were ushered into the ground, they have their own little changing room and are given a pre match chat and tracksuits to...

  20. Ref Watch ..... Bristol Rovers (H)

    This is the 62nd and final Refwatch for this season ...... The first three visits of Bristol Rovers, one of our more regular opponents over the years, to Roots Hall ended 3-2, 3-4 and then 6-3.
