Roots Hall


Apr 17, 2005
I am very much looking forward to the new stadium - I feel it will really push the club on to new levels but I tell you one thing; I ain't half gonna miss Roots Hall! I was sitting at the game last night and thinking about how much I loved the place. I still get that surge of adrenaline every time I walk up the stairs to my seat in South Upper. There have been so many good memories that I will miss when we leave. I will always remember the Man Utd game but there are other, more special memories, that will live stronger in my mind, be it against Chester a couple of seasons ago on a cold winter night when I chose to introduce my mate to Southend United and we won 1-0 from a late goal by Lawrie Dudfield, our 4-2 win over Boston when Leon Cort scored a hat trick or even my first ever live football game when Southend thrashed Oxford Utd 6-3! As I say, I am looking forward to the new stadium but there will never be another stadium quite like Roots Hall!
