Southend United chairman Ron Martin has fired himself to continue the bizarre events surrounding the Essex club.

A club spokesman said: “People generally lose their position as a result of not doing their job."

"The necessary decision surrounding Mr Martin was a disappointment and of course not taken lightly. People have been dismissed at this football club over the past 20 years and that even extends to managers.”

Mr Martin has failed to even begin work on a new stadium project which he promised would be finished almost a decade ago which is highly embarrassing considering he states himself to be a ‘property developer’. To add to constant failings Ron has been unable to pay wages, bills and debts on time on numerous occasions.

Another League 1 chairman who does not wish to be named commented: “Ron turned up the other week with his largely empty briefcase which contained a few computer generated images, repeating the same old about stadium work starting in spring. I told him that no one believes it anymore.”

The hugely bizarre and unprofessional statement does not seem to recognise that the club has been around for over 100 years, not 20!
