It is now time for ALL of us to get behind him and the team whether you are at Roots Hall, listening on the radio, listening or watching on ifollow, make that famous "Roots Hall Roar".

Kevin Bond’s 1st Southend United League One Home Team of the 2019/20 season


The Roots Hall pitch looks fantastic and is ready for action at 3.00 pm Saturday 10th August 2019 against Blackpool FC.


It looks like we are going to have sunny intervals for this afternoon’s game (If you are in the East Stand make sure you have your sun glasses and peaked cap), there will also be a strong swirling winds from the South West, but should be OK to wear your new home kit with pride.

Special Guest

SUEPA (Southend United Ex-Players Association) welcomes Stuart Parker

Stuart Parker.jpg

On Saturday against Blackpool FC we are delighted to welcome another Southend United Ex-Players Association (SUEPA) guest – Stuart Parker.

Stuart was with us for just 18 months during the mid ‘70’s yet plundered 31 goals in just 74 appearances, finishing leading scorer in the 1976/77 season and scoring some memorable goals. Perhaps what he will be remembered for most are the five goals he scored in the FA Cup as we won our way through to the fifth round of the FA Cup against Derby, including a memorable late winner against Cardiff.

Stuart started his footballing career at Blackpool FC where he still lives today so it is fitting he will be visiting us when we play against his hometown team.

Please be sure to give him a great Roots Hall welcome
