March 31 2003 Steve Tilson testimonial v England XI. Southend won 8-2.
Southend scorers:- Tes Bramble3, Steven Clark, Brett Darby2 and Mark Rawle2.
England XI scorers:- Steve Tilson and Clive Allen

The crowd was 4,555 and Michael Kightly came on as a sub for Bramble. Kevin Maher also played for Southend, and alongside Tilson, Chris Powell also represented the England XI.

As already mentioned, the Wimbledon game was in the Football League Group Cup. Derek Spence scored for us and Paul Lazarus got both goals for Wimbledon in front of a crowd of 1,780.

The last one I can help you with (I only started going in August 1967 so the other 2 games pre-date me) :-

Monday January 19th 1970 Essex Professional Cup 1st round replay finished Southend Utd 2 Chelmsford City 3. Goal scorers were Bill Garner and Gary Moore for Southend and Andrews, Price and Amato for Chelmsford. It went to extra time, was 2-1 to Chelmsford at h-t, and the crowd was 2,297.

From my diary for 21 March 1966: "I was saved from vomiting at Woodley's performance in our 6-1 victory over Clacton in the semi-final of the Essex Professional Cup by the continual remarks from the people Phil and I were with. That he scored from 18 yards with a blinding left-foot volley is ironic and disastrous, since he will surely now not be dropped? Firmani (3), King & Barnard."
(Editor's note: And to think that I now get very cross when our fans spend their time cursing our own players and wishing them gone!)
Can't help with the 1967 game, I'm afraid. My diary just has a review of the Sgt Pepper album, released that day.

He had actually been dropped for the previous game a couple of days earlier. Anyway that stunning volley (which I saw but have no recollection of) ensured that he played every game until the season end, playing his part to the full in our first ever relegation !

I’ve checked out all the answers given-just one minor error-Chris Barnard didn’t score v Clacton,Bobby King got 2.
And the Essex Professional Cup Final,all games in that competition were full first team fixtures,was won 4-2(1-1 at ht).Our scorers were Woodley,Slack,Smillie 2.Brennan and Smith replied for Chelmsford who had Costello at right-back.

Apologies to Stuart, but according to the match programmes played after the above match our goalscorers were Bill Garner & Billy Best? (I am not sure which one is correct? I did go to the game myself but it's over 48 years ago and let's face it our match programmes are often prone to the odd mistake??).

Yes,D.,I’ve checked again(personal records)and you’re right-Best and Garner scored-that match was Peter Taylor’s first team debut.
