    Stephy Mavididi

    Former youth player who was signed by Arsenal has been sent on loan to Preston for the season. Highly rated by all accounts.

    Planning ahead

    Great to see McLaughlin sign a new contract. He now joins Anton Ferdinand (who'll be 33), Theo Robinson, HMP's Nile Ranger and new signings Stephen Hendrie and Michael Kightly (who'll be 32) as the only players under contract for the 2018 season. Coker, McGlashan, Turner (who'll be 34) plus...

    Question The New Youth Players

    Afternoon, Thanks to Manor15 for updating the squad contracts, and it's great to see the new youth team players getting their first deals. Let's hope they make it through to a longer term deal before long. However, I'm not sure where each of them actually play? Can someone in the know give a...

    The future of our next generation of players playing for our national side is currently looking as bright as it's been in a while. Firstly, Congratulations to our U20's for reaching the World Cup Semi Final for the first time in 24 years. Italy up next on Thursday, and if we can get passed them...

    u21 squad for Euro Championships

    http://www.bbc.com/sport/football/40158863 Not one but two ex-loanees amongst the forwards but the name that stands out is ex-youth teamer and son of Dominic Iorfa, Dominic Iorfa. Surely Alfie Mawson if that's the guy who was at Wycombe is older than 21?
  8. Yorkshire Blue

    Shrimpers Trust End of Season Awards

    As some of you may be aware, last night we held our annual awards night, where almost the entire 1st team squad were in attendance along with the management team, and the youth team and Dave Huzzey. It's always interesting to see how the voting compares here with the club's awards, so here's...

    Ricky Duncan, Kevin Maher and the Youth Teams

    Great article on the echo's website about Duncan, Maher and the youth team. Really enjoyable read and just goes to show how far our youth set up has come on. http://www.echo-news.co.uk/sport/14994913.Ricky_boosting_Blues__next_generation/

  14. Ref Watch ..... Leyton Orient FA Youth Cup

    This is more an opportunity to plug tomorrow night's home FA Youth Cup tie than any misguided belief that anyone actually cares who is refereeing it. Earning his rather miserly £45 plus travelling expenses will be Daniel Richardson from Middlesex. He was promoted to level 3 a couple of years...
  15. Let the train take the strain ;

    Had a brief chat with Jason Williams at West Ham station on the way to the game on Saturday (think he lives Stratford way) and bumped into a charming young man in a Southend tracksuit at Stratford station on the way home. I assumed he was in the youth team but he hinted he was higher up the...

    Did you know there was another Southend United? Well it's a youth and junior football club formed in 1957 and based in Waterford Southern Ireland in the province of Munster. It has a growing membeship of over 200 players and coaches. Why they named it Southend United, I don't know. Still...

    Daggers v Southend ESC

    Apparently we have a game with daggers tonight at their place in the Essex senior cup. Not sure what side we will put out but its a good opportunity for some of our fringe players. Maybe: Ted White Sokolik Thompson Kyprianou Bridge King Youth Youth Mooney Williams
