  1. Memory Lane John McKinven

    It is with deep sadness that I have heard of the death of former Shrimper John McKinven on July 25th.aged 73. He was one of my early hero's who joined Southend from Raith Rovers as an inside left. It was however when he switched to outside left that he became a real crowd favourite. His nickname...

    Bill Best the start of the Legend

    The bill best story As mark of respect for Bill Bests 70th birthday I thought would recall my memories of his first few games. In 1967-68 Southend started seven games unbeaten and were top of the table at this stage, by the new year we had fluctuated between 1st and sixth, but when Bill signed...

    Memory Lane Peter Watson v Trevor Roberts, QF1

    I'll kick off the quarter-finals now with Peter Watson up against Trevor Roberts, even though we still have one tie outstanding (Halse v Hamilton). As players should by now need no introduction, I'll include a poll straight away.
  5. Yorkshire Blue

    Memory Lane Trevor Roberts v Joe Sibley 2:2

    Second tie of round 2, Roberts v Sibley.
  6. Yorkshire Blue

    Memory Lane Mike Beesley v Trevor Roberts 1:3 - poll now added

    Our third clash sees two players who I think were team-mates, goalkeeper Trevor Roberts and inside forward Mike Beesley. Post your cases for them, and a poll will follow later, but if you can't wait to cast your vote, you can always vote on McAlinden v McCrory or Anderson v Watson
  7. My Roots Hall.

I Guess I was about 9 when I used to visit Priory Park and wondered who these people were kicking footballs about, It took...
