Xàbia Shrimper

Spanish Shrimpers
Oct 24, 2003
Xàbia, España
Let's start our own ShrimperZone centenary celebrations by picking 100 players who have turned out for Southend United. But let's choose them on a personal level in YOUR lifetime - first come, first served (no repeats) - with your reason WHY you choose this player. We all have different tastes, I'm pretty sure we can come up with 100 different players.

I'll start with:

He is my selection simply because he was my first sporting hero. He was well established when I first started watching the Shrimpers in 1976 and well on his way to those 500+ appearances. He was almost always in total command and an absolute rock in defence; he was also rather good at penalties and I dare say most of his 44 goals came from the spot.
