My, how time has flown!

A thoroughly enjoyable stay in Glasgow, a thoroughly embarrassing performance by yours truly balanced out by a thoroughly brilliant performance by our much missed H, and a valiant attempt by him and MK in the final round.

ShrimperZoners' appearance on Eggheads, for those of you who have joined since. And to pre-empt the inevitable, no, we still don't know when it's going to be on again - the episode is unavailable on iplayer!!!

Unlike the team that took on the Eggheads, Southend United have won every single match played on this day (7 of them) including the most recent one, a 4-0 win over QPR which took us to the two-legged LDV Southern Final en route to Cardiff.

Also a 2-0 win at Orient with Ben Abbey scoring twice and a Tilly winner against Portsmouth in Division One (the Championship, for our younger members).

Date is also memorable to me as it's the date my husband proposed to me! :blush: That was 4 years ago today!

For the uninitiated, could you undertake a left to right who's who of our team, please?

Certainly can, some are no longer part of SZ for various reasons....

Hutton, MK Shrimper, Canvey Shrimper (RIP H x), myself, Southampton Shrimper; Glasgow Shrimper. Hutton was our reserve player, he'd have done better than I did on my round as it turns out!

Southampton Shrimper went first with Geography, then Glasgow with TV & film, I had Art & Lit, Harry had Sport - he won his round so he and MK were in the final.

Unfortunately that information taken unashamedly straight from the usually reliable SUFC DB site is incomplete. I thought it was statistically improbable that we wouldn't have played on that date at all in the last 12 years so checked. The games above happened as described, but there was also a 1-1 draw at Orient (Walker's finest moment) and a 1-0 home defeat to Derby since then.
