    Questions for Tony Bentley

    Confirmed a interview with Tony Bentley for the fanzine - any questions?
  3. Memory Lane Tony Bentley

    For all fans of a certain age it was great to see our former player Tony Bentley at Roots Hall yesterday. Now 76 Tony was playing when I first stated going to Roots Hall in the early sixties. He signed for Blues in May 1961 from Stoke City and went on to play over 400 league & cup matches before...

    Hi Everyone, Supported the Blues since 1958, earliest memories Harry Threadgold in goal, and a 6 foot Yogi Bear on to the South Bank before every match. I also was given a lift to school ( Prince Avenue ) by Tony Bentley every morning with Ernie Shepherds daughter. We also used to lay out the...

    Memory Lane Tony Bentley v Bill Garner 2:4

    Another intriguing clash as Tony Bentley is up against Bill Garner in the type of tie that I suspect would have made a good 50:50 on the pitch.

    Memory Lane Tony Bentley v Andy Ford 1:8 - poll added

    Our 8th clash of the opening round sees two full-backs(?) up against each other, so hopefully an easier one for Mick to make comparisons.

    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...

    Old Gits Club?

    Any old timers (with a "football favour", remembering Tony Bentley, paying 6d to go into the West Stand) fancy a meet up? Maybe in Calais so Yogi can get there?

    Kevin Maher

    Reading the OS it would seem that Kev will be our 3rd most appearances once he has played against Bristol Rovers He deserves a big well done, he has shown the club huge loyalty, and has performed brilliantly more times than not. Source: southendunited.co.uk Finally, Captain Kevin Maher will...

    Kevin Maher

    Last night was Kev's 416th appearance in a Southend shirt. This season he's passed the legendary Ronnie Poutney in the all time list and three more appearances will see him equal Tony Bentley in 3rd place. Quite an achievement and at only 30 he could very well catch up both Sandy Anderson in...

    Kevin Maher

    At 382 appearances our Kev is currently 5th in the all time list. 38 appearances next season would lift him above Ron Pountney and Tony Bentley to 3rd place which would be a remarkably achievement in the current footballing climate. 124 more appearances needed to equal Alan Moody's overall...

    Tony Bentley- an apology

    In an article in February 2003 in our Hall of Fame special for the best ever right-back, we announced that Tony Bentley had sadly passed away. We have been recently informed that this is not the case at all, and we are delighted to hear that he is actually coaching a women's Premier League...
