I was watching MOTD last night and saw that Bournmouth had Simon Francis (captain) , Federici , and Junior Stainislass in the line up .

It made me wonder what is the most amount of ex shrimpers (signed or on loan ), that have played together in the Premiership? Any advances on three?

I guess three won't be beaten, so how about, unless this has been done before, a team line-up made up entirely of players who went on from Southend to play in the Premier League. They've got to have played for Southend before playing in the Premier, rather than the other way around.

I'll start with a few obvious ones :-


Mark Gower (Swansea City)
Michael Kightly (Wolves, Stoke)
Gary Hooper (Norwich City)

Ah right, I guessed it had.

The trick now is to get them into a line-up and correct positions.

We seem to be top heavy on strikers and midfielders at the moment.

Currently we are playing 0-0-4-5

Luke Daniels.

Yes,he was superb when he played for us and to prove what a great keeper he is ,he even got to play in the mighty Baggies' first team (one appearance in his nine seasons at the club!)
