    Derrick Parker

    Questions please - tracked him down and arranged an interview for the Fanzine.
  2. Ref Watch ........ Portsmouth A

    For our visit to Portsmouth where we have only ever won once (last year!), the man in charge tomorrow is Lee Collins from Surrey. He was fast tracked through the system and rose to the level of League referee remarkably quickly, this being his fourth season. He started his career off with 6 red...
  3. Ref Watch ........ Wimbledon (H)

    The man in charge tomorrow is Lee Collins from Surrey. He has been fast tracked through the system and rose to the level of League referee remarkably quickly, this being his fourth season. He started his career off with 6 red cards in his first 11 matches, then calmed down a lot. He has now...

    Breaking News JACOB BLYTH.........Another named target

    As Clinton Baptiste predicted correctly, yesterday, Jacob Blyth is the new striker target being tracked by Phil Brown. If we appear to have failed with Jakub, at least we may get Jacob in. Yet another player named............I'm starting to wonder whether there is some ulterior motive for...
  5. Ref Watch ........ Bury H

    When I think of Southend v Bury matches, I tend to think of turgid 0-0 draws after the three we had in quick succession in the 70s. Even since then, there have been few goals about in these matches with the last 14 such matches producing a miserly 23 goals (6 of which came in one match). The...
  6. Ref Watch ........ Chesterfield H Select Group Officials

    So it's a team of Select Group officials two weeks in a row at Roots Hall. First up for our big match against Chesterfield is Robert Madley, one of two refereeing brothers from Ossett in West Yorkshire. Only in his 4th season he has been fast-tracked into Select Group status although he has only...
  7. Ref Watch ........ Newport A

    As we go to a city we haven't lost in for 31 years, the man in charge tomorrow is Lee Collins from Surrey. He has been fast tracked through the system and rose to the level of League referee remarkably quickly, this being his third season. He started his career off with 6 red cards in his first...
  8. Ref Watch ........ Scunthorpe H

    The return of Friday night football sees the continuation of the waterfowl theme. After Sheldrake's abysmal performance a couple of weeks' ago, tonight we have Coote. We have a pretty decent record against Scunthorpe at home and the man in charge as we attempt to keep that good record going is...
  9. Ref Watch ......... Yeovil

    The man in charge tomorrow is Lee Collins from Surrey. He has been fast tracked through the system and rose to the level of League referee remarkably quickly, this being his third season. He started his career off with 6 red cards in his first 11 matches, then calmed down a lot but then went a...
  10. George Friend (remember him?)

    Now being tracked by 3 premiership clubs! Weren't we on the verge of signing him but then found out we didn't have any money??
  11. Ref Watch ....... Paint pot Oxford

    Tonight's referee is one who is being fast-tracked more than any other referee since Attwell (and that worked out well!!). He is David Coote from Winthorpe near Newark. He is a third year referee and he has been getting appointments far better than his experience (and, probably, ability)...
  12. Ref Watch ....... Daggers at home

    After a glut debutant referees, man in charge tomorrow is Lee Collins from Surrey. He has been fast tracked through the system and rose to the level of League referee remarkably quickly, this being his second season. He started his career off with 6 red cards in his first 11 matches, but has...
  13. Ref Watch ........ Oxford away

    Given the number of experienced officials who have been assigned to matches with nothing riding on them, I am surprised a match that matters (potentially) to both teams has been given to a first year referee, Lee Collins from Surrey. He is being fast tracked through the system and has risen to...
  14. Ref Watch ...... Dagenham away

    Man in charge of tomorrow's difficult encounter (Mr Sturrock's words, not mine) is scheduled to be rookie first year referee Lee Collins from Surrey. He is being fast tracked through the system and has risen to the level of League referee remarkably quickly. Or will it be ? He limped off half...

    Chris Almond

    Ive heard he's a nutter SKELMERSDALE United flyer Chris Almond is being tracked by League Two Southend United - as manager Tommy Lawson prepares his side for a major cup final clash with Liverpool. Ahead of the Liverpool Senior Cup showpiece on Saturday, the latest exciting prospect to...

    Latest Rumours Sturrock & Widdrington/Players...

    Latest from the transfer rumours site. Obviously to be taken with a pinch of salt... 15 Jul 2010 13:22:50 New Southend United management duo, Paul Sturrock and Tommy Widdrington, are to seek urgent talks with Chairman, Ron Martin, on his return from his Cypriot holiday to seek immediate...
  17. Ref Watch ..... Swindon

    Man in charge of Saturday's crucial (aren't they all now?) match is Police Officer David Phillips from Chichester, West Sussex refereeing in his second season. This will be his third Southend game and his second Southend home game; his only previous Southend home match being the match against...
  18. Ref Watch ... Yeovil away

    After a very satisfactory performance from Rob Shoebridge on Saturday (if not from the players) what does next Saturday bring? Yeovil has often been the venue for very poor refereeing performances as far as Southend are concerned. But despite that we have won our last three away League matches...
  19. Ref Watch Referees and things .....

    The general tirade of abuse directed towards the, on this occasion, hapless Mr Ward seems to have run over a couple of threads so I'll put my response in a seperate one. Whilst most of the criticism is undoubtedly justified, there is included amongst it, a number of inaccuracies and...
  20. Ref Watch ... Stockport

    Man in charge, as we turn our attentions back to the more mundane League programme, is Tony Bates from Stoke who, when he is not refereeing, works, yes, in the pottery industry. He is top of the whole list of Football League referees. Well he is if you arrange them in alphabetical order and...
