I pulled up at Tesco's Pitsea for some fuel and none other than Michael Kightly parked beside me to get some fuel as well.

He said hello to me because he must have noticed my SUFC car sticker. I then had a chat with him while we both filled our cars up.

I asked him if he had another club sorted out next season, and he said he was hoping to join Barnet as they have shown alot of interest. He also said Grimsby were after him, but he doesn't want to move out of the area.

I joked with him and said your not going to Canvey are you? He said "No Way would i want to join them"

I then went into pay and he stood chatting to me while i purchased my fuel. I wished him good luck for next season and hoped he got his move to Barnet. He also said to me he was going to join Grays for a little while, probably for some pre-season training.

We shook hands and he hopes Southend do well this season.

What a top guy! He seems really down to earth and so friendly. Shame for him to leave SUFC really, i for one thought he was a bright talent.

Good luck Kights!!!

Good report. A seemingly nice lad that has no sour grapes. I agree he looked potentialy good and I hope he fulfils it. Good luck Kights!

Just been told that Kightly has signed for Grays.

It'll be interesting to see how he does against us next week.

He's bound to score... then again, Eastwood and Cole will want to put on a show too so I see us nicking it (but it'll be too close for comfort!)

Yes, he did. Kights' only shortcoming was, I think, a lack of a physical side to his game. He's quite slightly built... and was thus always going to struggle in the basement league with SUFC where braun is a fairly key asset. He's muscled off the ball a bit easily, I guess - and that's a shame, because the rest of his game looks very sound.

To be honest, plenty of us thought he'd make the breakthrough at SUFC - but, for whatever reason, Tilly doesn't fancy him. I'd say he's a good bet to prove Tilly wrong, though.

Apparently, although as I didnt see him for you so can not comment, he has worked on his strength and stamina.

I heard a short coming was his ability to last 90 mins but he has worked on that

Definately lightweight. If we hadn't gone up, I think he'd have stayed at us as a last chance saloon to build himself up and improve on his game. Unfortunaltely for him we went up, and moved on as a team, whereas he didn't.

I'm sure he'll do well at you guys, and I wish him well.

He is a very good player and I think he will eventually get back into the football league and go on to do very well.
