Seeing loads of other clubs announcing their squad numbers for the season but just a few days before the season nothing from Southend yet or have I missed this somewhere along the line?

Something was tweeted about:
4 WORDSWORTH
9 MOONEY
10 PAYNE
16 HUNT

Otherwise, no change.

They all had squad numbers and names in the back of their shirts in the orient game. from what I remember, most have stayed the same as last season which the exception of Payne changing to 10. Mooney was 9 and Hunt had 16 IIRC. Can't remeber Wordsworth.

He was the one who wandered lonely as a cloud mate.

Orient was the first pre season game I have missed so didn't see that unfortunately Trucking Shrimper. Just wondered why the club could not have announced this via the website or in the Echo? Normally some of the youth players get a number and it would be nice to see if this has happened for this season also.

Team photo would be nice at some stage also:omg:

They don't like to rush this to ensure it is as up to date as possible.

As to squad numbers, the shirts they wore on Sunday were all named up so pretty much as per post #2 above. Only thing of note is that Payne is taking #10.

This appears to give the squad numbers with the exception of Mooney.

David Mooney told me at Meet The Blues that he would be wearing the number 9 shirt this season. Thank you for the link Rootshallbloke but this is not up to date showing Payne with 18 and Wordsworth and Mooney without a number. It is hardly much of an ask for the club just to give us an update of this is it?

Does it really matter? We all know the numbers anyway.

Can we all read far too much into the fact that Bentley was given the number 1 shirt meaning he's almost definitely staying? :smile:

Actually yes it does. It is called keeping the fans informed. If other clubs can do it, why can't Southend?
It's hardly important and urgent for the club to release squad numbers that everybody already knows. When the club posts a picture on Twitter of the starting line up (which they've done for most pre season games) it has the squad numbers so is that not informing the fans?

The only change is Payne who has taken number 10. The new boys have all taken vacant numbers. Wordsworth 4, Mooney 9, Hunt 16.
