I think they're a long way down the pyramid, aren't they ?
7th tier I think, it's probably the kind of level where if some interest was drummed up enough funding could be raised to climb the pyramid.

At the moment in Essex the main women's football club is Billericay, they got promoted to the third tier last season, beating fellow Essex side Hashtag United to the title by a single point (only the champions get promoted in that league). Hashtag United were previously Basildon Ladies, who you might remember Steve Tilson managed for a bit a few years ago.

Oh yeah. Just been looking it up. They leave SUFC a long way behind. I suppose it's the invetsment they've put into it, whereas we've had to focus on the mens team first

Shame that the Southend Ladies couldn’t be invited to play a game or two at Roots Hall. Be a great experience for them to play at the stadium and also this would almost certainly create interest & enhance the profile of the women’s game within the Southend era.

Sadly I hear it is a matter of cost however. 😔

It's also a shame nothing is setup for girls aged u16 ie on the youth side of things. Again, I imagine this is down to cost but perhaps something might change over the next couple of years as the ground facilities develop, along with the success of the euros.
