Another hugely successful MTPD at Roots Hall this morning. 80 Junior Blues - and their parents and grandparents - had a really good morning with the team at Roots Hall.

This was our first event with Chris Powell in charge and I have to say, it was quite different to previous times. Phil's always been great at these events, but Chris and Damien Matthew were fantastic with the children, talking to them about how training worked and what benefits there were, what to look for, and asking them to choose the best goal scored during the sessions.

They came back at the end to "de-brief" too, and the children really responded to their proactive approach.

We did the autographs first, at Chris' suggestion, and this worked well with everyone getting plenty of opportunity to get autographs and photos. It was a very good humoured event with almost a full squad out - just Ted, Fortuné and Rob Kiernan missing.

Some great photos on the OS https://www.southendunited.co.uk/news/2018/april/junior-blues-meet-the-players-day/
