As some of you may have read, I'm organising a charity football match and family fun day on Sunday 11th May in aid of a The Lullaby Trust (http://www.shrimperzone.com/vb/showthread.php?80680-Charity-football-match-and-family-fun-day).

The match itself will be against a Southend United legends side (Confirmed are Peter Taylor, Steve Tilson, Kevin Maher, Adam Barrett, Terry Alderton, Leo Roget, Mark Beard, Osei Sankofa, David Lee & Lawrie Dudfield).

I'm going to be producing a programme for the day, and in it, will be a player profile section. Are there any realiable websites out there where I can find the playing stats for the Southend United Legends side? Obviously there is Wikipedia, but it's not exactly the most accurate.

Any help would be appreciated.

soccerbase is good but more recent. the SUFCDB is probably your best bet although I think in recent years it's been a little unreliable.

Just to add - SUFCDB is a fantastic resource. The only reason I question it's reliability is that a couple of times I found that its player stats didn't match with other websites. Not sure who is at fault really...

Thanks for the help.

If anyone has any particular memories about these players, please feel free to let me know and I'll include them.

Also, did Terry Alderton ever go on to play for the first team, and if not, when did he get released?

No he didn't.

No he didn't.

A fine example of the fallibility of wikipedia:

Alderton began his career as a goalkeeper with Southend United. Later he moved on to comedy.

(you decide which bit is wrong)

..... in his dreams.

Although he has played in front of a bigger crowd than most of our goalkeepers !
