    Swindon Town Away FACup 3rd Round Jan 1969

    Probably been asked before but are there many of us still alive who were there that day when the Blues (inc Billy Best and Chico Hamilton) took down Swindon Town (including Don Rogers and John Smith) in the period when Swindon were so good they went on to be Arsenal in the League Cup Final at...

    Morpeth Town v Bowers & Pitsea

    Bowers & Pitsea take on the long journey Up North this Saturday to Morpeth Town. Anyone fancy being a glory Hunter, or witnessing history in the making, for going our beloved Southend for one day to represent an Essex Team to Wembley there is a coach!!! :smile: It's not every day you can say in...

    Bowers & Pitsea FC v Morpeth Town, 1st Leg Semi Final FA Vase.

    As stated unfortunately the Len Salmon Stadium, Pitsea, has been hit by the recent weather and the game is now being staged at Concord Rangers Stadium on Canvey Island. Only £6-00 to get in with less for concessions. If you're not going to Barnsley then to see a possible history in the making...

    Memory Lane 13th March 1986 : Southend United 1-3 Northampton Town

    Apologies as this may have been covered before. So, were you one of the 683 who made it that night? I have to admit that I wasn't. Those who know, will recall it was a Freight Rover Trophy Group Stage match, with our unlikely scorer being none other than Frank Lampard. So, where were the 683...

    Post-Match Thread and Ratings Shrewsbury Town 1-2-Southend United

    A cracking result in the circumstances. Obviously 10 men suits us. For those on a mission the Timlin thread has already started so maybe this thread may be a bit positive. Roll on Saturday.

    If you want to save a few quid (literally)

    I was walking down the high street past Bargain Buys on the corner of Cliff Town Road yesterday. In their window they had large boxes of Finish PowerBall dishwasher tablets, 110 tablets for £8 (Tesco currently charge £8 for 38). That is a pretty hefty saving compared with mainstream Super...
  9. Another central defender to go? Thompson linked with move

    MK Dons could make a late move to sign Southend United defender Adam Thompson before Monday’s transfer deadline, according to reports. The Mirror claims the Dons and Championship rivals Huddersfield Town are interested in the 23-year-old Northern Ireland international. Thompson graduated from...
  10. Hunt's Twitter 'bants'

    Southend United striker Noel Hunt has made it clear on social networking site Twitter that he is not bitter about his experience at Leeds United. Hunt was on the books of Leeds from the summer of 2013 until January 2015 and struggled with injuries. The Irish striker failed to score a single goal...

    Leyton Orient U21 0-1 SUFC U21

    U21s have a game against Leyton Orient today. Luke Prosser is the only senior player in the u21 team! 8 senior players in the Orient side. Also a trialist it looks like for blues, with Jordan Gibbons playing. Who is contracted for Yeovil Town. I believe it is him. Here is the team sheet below...

    Post-Match Thread and Ratings Swindon Town 4-2 Southend United

    Top effort from the poor 620 Shrimpers who travelled. Shame the display didn't match that. Reports, ratings and I'm guessing a lot of rants here.

    Official Match Thread Swindon Town vs Southend United

    Bentley, O'Neill, Thompson, Prosser, Coker, Worrall, Leonard, Deegan, Timlin, Hunt, Barnett Subs: T. Smith, Bolger, Barrett, Atkinson, Hurst, Payne, Mooney White and McLaughlin out, Barnett gets his debut, 6 changes. Harsh on Payne but system change definitely needed.

    Swindon who went there the earliest?

    Following on from the "Longest Serving Supporter?" thread I, like many on here, made my first visit to Swindon just over 47 years ago: 4th January 1969 Swindon Town 0-2 Southend United F,A. Cup Round 3 Goalscorers; Billy Best and Ian Hamilton Attendance; 18,828 The question is has anyone...

    Operation Meet the Street

    Did anyone else see this on BBC1 just before Christmas? It featured in Episode 3 TV Presenter Dominic Littlewood, who is a Southend boy. The programme focuses on loneliness and at one point there is an interview with a guy called Keith who says he has started coming to watch Southend so he can...

    "Attention All Blues Supporters"

    Ron must be getting desperate. I wish someone would teach him when to use capital letters, and then maybe even how to use sentences instead of bullet points. We really need to put the Town and the Club on the Football Map by showing that our chairman can pass a basic grammar test. The best...

    Monday Night Noxious Club

    At the risk of upsetting Berrichonne Shrimper with my unfettered ego, I'd like to tell you about a radio show that I'm kicking off tomorrow night on The Source 96.1FM. As TravelZoners will know, I like to get a bit of Shrimpers-related stuff into my public service broadcasting and I hope to find...

    Further to my Memory Lane post on Sheffield United cup games I've had an enquiry about one of players Walden (don't know his first name yet) which is amazing, it means someone has read my post :smile: Anyway I'm doing some research into the player and thought I would post it up for all to...
