Bit off topic but I can't recommend Frameworks and I've known them refuse to do anything related to Southend in the past as their son was once on the youth books and then was dropped! Bit petty to turn away business but I've never forgotten that - there's also another personal reason, relating to a close friend of mine which means they'll never get a penny out of me ever again.

The Trust use a guy who used to have a shop in Benfleet High Road, he now does all his framing from his workshop at home. If you drop Beaver a line via the Trust info email, he'll get back to you with contact details. info@shrimperstrust.co.uk

Adam Barrett is a regular customer of theirs. Which is why I got his signed shirt framed by them just last year. Not for me but for a much more deserving fan.

They have clearly realised they were cutting their noses off to spite their faces then, it was some years back now. As I said I have a more personal reason for refusing to step in their shop ever again.

I have a framed centenary shirt, signed by the first team at the time. It was given to me as a wedding present from my pals.

That's fair enough. I have no connection to the shop but the job they done for me was fine.

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.

Nice thoughts and we still share those great memories Nobbler. See you Saturday in the Shrimpers! :smile:

Andy Ansah gave me his match shirt (Yellow Hi-Tec no. 7) on the last day of the season at the Old Den. I assume in those days they wore them most of the season. Had all the Football League badges on the arms etc.

Top top bloke..

Villiers Terrace - I've been in a daze, for days.

I've got a loft full of this stuff, but these three games are etched on my memory forever. The Russia Tour I can't even remember, but I suppose it was more exciting than playing Championship Under 21 sides and schlepping all over Essex playing non-league sides and the players getting the granny kicked out them by no-marks with an axe to grind.

We do, of course, have large numbers of signed shirts adorning the walls of the Shrimpers Bar, plus some "special" photos, including one of the Liverpool game. In the foyer, there are also pictures going back over the whole century of the club up to our centennial season. I think we also have our "Hall of Fame" up, which, I believe is up for a re-fresh soon and for some new inductees to be added - of which I fully expect Adam Barrett to be one.

You don't have to be a member to come in the bar, people are always welcome on match days.
