Not very often I do this, but I am linking to an article in the most recent newsletter by a very brave Junior Blue whose mummy died suddenly a year ago.

If it doesn't hit you in the feels then you're a stronger person than most.

The school have been very good. The family had a table sale recently at St.Lawrence Church Hall and thy school sent some of the choir to sing a few songs. The table sale raised a lot of money for C.R.Y and there was a signed Southend shirt as one of the raffle prizes.

I had a chat with Jason at the Sponsors evening and he was very happy to sort out a signed shirt for Jess. We really do have a great bunch of players, Anton and Coxy took two other JBs on the pitch walk and Harry Kyp sorted out a signed shirt for Jess' brother.

Touching article. Made my eyes sweat a bit.

Well done to both the players, and the club for getting involved in this.
