    SZ's SUFC Hall of Fame - Steve Tilson

    The SZ SUFC Hall of Fame has high standards. It's exclusivity can be judged by the high calibre of those individuals who fell just short: the likes of Paul Sansome, David Crown, Ricky Otto and Ian Benjamin were great but not quite great enough. Indeed even Paul Clark and Ron Pountney only made...

    SZ's SUFC Hall of Fame - nominations

    Ladies and gentlemen, it's time to open SZ's SUFC Hall of Fame to nominations once more, where we seek to celebrate our history and recognise Southend United's very finest. Rules are one nomination per poster, per round of nominations, so you'll need to think carefully over who you want to...

    SZ's Southend United Hall of Fame - Mark Gower

    Next up for SZ's Southend United Hall of Fame ballot is mercurial midfielder Mark Gower. Mark Gower will need at least 90% of the votes and at least 30 votes must be cast. You, the SZ voters must decide if Marky Gower made a substantial impact, displayed greatness and left a legacy that he...

    SZ's Southend United Hall of Fame round up

    Those currently in: Chris Powell with 100% of the vote and a poll of 66 votes in favour Sid Bloomfield with a 97.73% of the vote, polling 43 to 1 Stanley Collymore with 94.44% of the vote, 102 to 6 Ron Pountney, at the 2nd attempt, with 91.07% and 51 to 5 (only 22 votes in favour on 1st poll)...

    SZ's Southend United Hall of Fame - Spencer Prior

    Four places (I think) left to fill and next up is Spencer Prior, albeit a day late in Ron Martin style. -------------------------------------------------- Separated by over a decade, Spencer Prior had two very different careers with Southend. Either would be sufficient to get him in the Hall of...

    SZ's Southend United Hall of Fame - Paul Clark Pt II

    Paul Clark was probably better remembered for his second spell at the club, so maybe it would be more apt to be elected on his second ballot. His first ballot saw him receive the second highest number of votes so far (only Stan has had more than the Viking's 88). Now I'm sure a factor in this...

    SZ's Southend United Hall of Fame - David Webb

    For 84 years Southend was a team that bounced around the lower divisions. The opening words of the official club history are: "Other teams dreamt of Wembley, some hankered for the first division championship or a place in Europe - but Southend only ever wanted second division status." We'd...

    SZ's Southend United Hall of Fame - Billy Best

    I never saw Billy Best play. What I have seen was the reverence that those who had, hold Billy Best. The mere mention of his name and fans of a certain age go all misty-eyed. I first noticed this phenomenon in 1993. I knew Stan was good, but I wasn't at that stage sure quite how good he was...

    SZ's Southend United Hall of Fame - Oliver Trigg

    Oliver Trigg was the man who kicked it all off. Literally. The time was six pm on 25 August 1906. Southend 'A' versus Southend 'B' at Roots Hall, the first practice match, in aid of the Victoria Hospital. Trigg was given the honour of 'kicking off' in his capacity as chairman of The Southend...
