No 1 a thumping 10-1 victory over Oxford City


11 is a bit of a guess but it could be Laurie Dudfield ?

I hope 5 is a better link than both managed Derby County (Phil Brown) albeit with dramatically varying levels of success.

12) Little signed Pony Richards for a fee and I'm not 100% sure but I know it was close to £50k.

If this is a bung question I hope it's a manager already dead like Bobby Moore.

Chelsea?

10) What club record did Kevin Maher achieve in 2002/3?

Most sideway passes

First Southend player to be penalised for dissent by the ref moving the ball back.

11) Who scored a penalty with his only touch of the game in a match in 2004/5?

I reckon either Lawrie Dudfield as sub or Tes in one of his lethargic matches.

Obviously not Dr*we as you said scored.

Bit tentative this one, but cannot think of anything else...

5) Cloughie's long time assistant was called Peter Taylor, who shared the same name as err our ex-manager and player; the other Peter Taylor ?

12) Mark Tinkler was another Little signing. Costing in the region of £40k if memory serves me correctly.
Didn't Gordon Connelly cost as well? About £20k?

I shudder at the thought of us actually paying money for Connelly. I'm pretty sure Nigel Pepper cost us...possibly Neil Tolson as well?
