Interestingly I have a very recent souvenir, got it from the ref yesterday before the game. It was his ability to get any important decisions correct.

I told you to wait until after the game before you took that! Bloody hell, do you never listen?

I have over 100 Southend players complimentary away match tickets from the late 60's, early 70'.
A signed used match ball 1970-71 when Southend United played Scunthorpe United(2-2)given to me by the club/players for my 21st.Birthday.
1980-81.Derek Spence's Home & Away Shirt(Charterhouse) The home shirt was given to me in the tunnel after the last home league match against Rochdale.(Derek also gave me his Northern Ireland shirt from the World Cup match qualifier (1-1) at Hampden Park a match I attended with my good friend Russ Ralph(who sadly is no longer with us).
1980-81. Dave Cusack's tracksuit.(Champions Division 4).
1984-85. Ron Pountney Shirt/Shorts/Socks.(I sponsored him in his testimonial year with my Czech Pen Friend, this turned out to be Ronnie's last season as he was released at the end of that season by the then manager Bobby Moore).
2000-01?.Ronnie Pountney Testimonial a spare shirt unused in the match. Ronnie also gave me a glass football engraved "Ron Pountney Testimonial" these were also given to the Charlton Athletic players who played in his match.
2006-07.Peter Clarke match worn shirt from the Championship season.
Finally all the memories from over 55 years of supporting my local club and the many players I have come across in all those years especially the friends that I retain to this day from the "Halcyon Days" of the middle to late 60's & early 70's.

After a dismal day I got round to opening a couple of boxes of my old SUFC programmes, and other tat, which have been in the loft for more years than I can recall.

One item I had forgotten I still had (thought my mum had chucked it when I left home around 25 years ago) was a Wembley Trophy football, signed by the 1980-81 Division 4 winning squad. I remember this match so clearly, and the players throwing signed balls into the crowd. I was at the game with my dad and grandad, we were playing a friendly against Wolves, who were a leading club back then. I remember standing on the West stand terrace, and catching Ron Pountney's eye - he aimed one of the balls directly at me with a firm throw, to which the then 11 year old wannabe Southend No.1 caught instinctively as the surrounding supporters shouted "oi that's mine!" to which my dad then grabs and declares actually it's my sons and shoves the ball up his jumper. So, had it ever since.

Having spend it's life in lofts, sheds and garages it's seen better day and most of the signatures have faded. I can still make out Dave Smith, Mervyn Cawston, Derek Spence, Tony Hadley, Terry Gray, Dave Cusack, Ron Pountney and Steve Yates.

Am sure they are all there somewhere...

Anyone got any interesting SUFC memorabilia hidden in lofts or cupboards?

I always thought Pountney looked a bit dodge, the glass eye explains it though!! :smile:

Has anyone got a SUFC silk scarf from the 70s ?
Just checked yes still got one this was from about early 70's this one is blue with the badge printed all over it in white. I did also have another with the same design but white with blue badge all over it.
Also does anyone remember the car sticker that was about in the 60's, it was blue with white wording about 10" x 2" approx? and said something like this "SUPPORT THE BLUES" but the UP was larger(as in UP THE BLUES), also think the badge was on it some where in the middle but struggling to quite remember???

I have my 1980/81 Travel Club membership card - signed by Phil Esdaile. Was banned after a misunderstanding at Darlo and never travelled by coach again. Great souvenir and reminder of being a prat!
