Sol Campbell’s 8th Southend United League One Home Team of the 2019/20 season


The Roots Hall pitch looks fantastic and is ready for action at 19.45pm Tuesday 18th February 2020 against Gillingham. It looks like we are going to have a windy evening at Roots Hall with gusty winds and some possible light rain. It will still feel cold so wrap up warm everyone.



Here is the weather forecast for this evening at Roots Hall
