    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 - Freddy Eastwood

    With Freddy there's only one place to start: has there ever been a better debut? I very much doubt it, and I include fiction in that. Scoring after just 7.7 seconds of your professional debut against the top of the table team before going onto complete your hattrick is the type of story that...

    SZ's SUFC Hall of Fame - Nominations round 8

    ...The SZ Hall of Fame? Last time we did a round of nominations was August/Sept, and I think Dave Smith made it in. And I'm pretty sure Mark Gower now qualifies to be nominated. Also we seem to have lost the Hall of Fame page from the front of the website? Unless I'm being blind.

    Memory Lane SZ's Southend United Hall of Fame - Ian Benjamin

    It's the answer to the most famous question in Southend United history: who put the ball in the Bury net? And as every Southend fan will gleefully tell you: Ian Benjamin, Ian Benjamin. Now this poll's been a long time coming*, but in some ways that's apt. *He received the required nominations...

    SZ's Southend United Hall of Fame 7th Round Nominations

    SZ's Southend United Hall of Fame (courtesy of Yorkshire Blue) For a bit of fun and to honour our club's history, I propose starting a SZ Hall of Fame to recognise the true legends of Southend United. The words legend and great are bandied about a bit too often for my liking, I'd like our Hall...

    SZ's Southend United Hall of Fame - 5th round of nominations

    You should know the rules by now. Paul Clark looks like missing out on the first ballot by the narrowest of margins, so will be amongst the favourites to be nominated as his supporters seek to right that wrong. With 3 nominations record scorer Roy Hollis might also feature, and I remain...
  12. Yorkshire Blue

    SZ's Southend United Hall of Fame - Dave Smith

    This poll is really a week or so too early. The date of this poll should be 01 May, because that is the date for which Dave Smith will forever be associated with the club, for it was on 01 May 1981 that his side claimed the club's first major trophy* with a 1-1 draw against Rochdale. Dave...

    SZ's Southend United Hall of Fame - Paul Clark

    The Viking That alone might be enough words for many on here to vote yes to Paul Clark, but if you weren't fortunate enough to have witnessed his crunching tackles and never say die attitude, I suppose I should give a lengthier bio. The first local player up for election, Clark was born in...

    SZ's Southend United Hall of Fame - Paul Sansome

    Ah-oooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooh, its Sammy! Yep, first up from the 4th round of nominations is popular goalkeeper Paul Sansome. If Sammy is elected, he'll become the third individual from the double promotion era to be elected, following in the footsteps of his manager Dave...

    SZ's Southend United Hall of Fame - 4th round of nominations

    It's time for the fourth round of nominations. Rules and guidelines are here. Basically each poster gets one nomination per round, so use your nomination wisely, and individuals need five nominations to go forward to a ballot. So far Chris Powell, Sid Broomfield, Stan Collymore, Ron Pountney...

    SZ's Southend United Hall of Fame - Alan Moody

    Next up for nomination is Alan Moody. The last two nominees, David Crown and Ricky Otto look unlikely to make it into the Hall of Fame (at least on the first ballot), probably because their glittering Southend career's were deemed too short. That is unlikely to keep Alan Moody out. In fact it...

    SZ's Southend United Hall of Fame - David Crown

    David Crown was my first footballing hero. I started watching Southend in the mid-80s, but despite constantly nagging the old man it wasn't until late 1987 that he started taking me along with him regularly. I suspect he was protecting me from the Dick Bate era. Fortunately the Bate spell was...

    SZ's Southend United Hall of Fame - Frank Gill

    One of the reasons I was keen to get the Hall of Fame going, was to learn more about our club's heritage. I thought I had a fairly decent grasp on our club's history but this is one nomination that has caught me completely by surprise. I'm therefore welcoming the opportunity to find out more...

    SZ's Southend United Hall of Fame - Ronnie Pountney 2nd vote

    Up for the second time is Ronnie Pountney The first individual to be nominated 6 times, this still wasn't enough to make him a first ballot hall of famer, as his vote seemed to have got lost in the Christmas period. The idea that Pountney didn't make it was met by incredulity from those who...
