It's time for the third round of nominations.

Rules and guidelines are here. Basically each poster gets one nomination per round, so use your nomination wisely, and individuals need five nominations to go forward to a ballot.

So far Chris Powell, Sid Broomfield, Stan Collymore, Ron Pountney, Oliver Trigg, Frank Gill, Billy Best and David Webb have all been nominated.

Last time out Paul Sansome got 3 nominations, Alan Moody 2 with the likes of Otto, Crown and Hollis on one nomination.

The likes of Paul Clark, Richard Cadette and Brett Angell might also feature, they all received two nominations first time round but didn't get a single nomination in round two. Goalkeepers Mervyn Cawston and Simon Royce also got a nomination in round one but none in round two.

The likes of Ian Benjamin, Jimmy McAlinden, Jimmy Evans, Sandy Anderson, Jimmy Shankly, Harry Warren and Ted Birnie might also come under consideration.

So ladies and gentlemen, once more your nominations please.

Is it the second or third round of nominations? :P Attention to detail, Cousin Weir (I can imagine your girlfriend saying that to you!) ;)

David Crown- his 17 goals in a struggling side from Nov. 87-May '88 kept us in Div. 3, whilst his ongoing good form helped get us back up in 1990, all this as a forward in the twilight of his career...

David Crown gets my nomination. Excelled at beating three defenders and smashing it in from 20 yards.

Wasn't Tilly discounted atm because he's still here? I think the older players will always suffer here because there's hardly anyone around who can vouch for them, with the likes mom players like of Oliver Trigg and Frank Gill, it's different. Not the most charismatic of players but have gone with ACU's nomination for Alan Moody, although sorely tempted by Paul Clarke

Hmm tricky, I'm tempted to go for a goalkeeper this time round.

Either Paul Sansom or Charlie Cotton (keeper from 1906-1910 when he died aged 30)

Not sure yet.

Good shout, although I think his playing record possibly overshadows his managerial one! We've actually had some fantastic managers, Dave Smith's another contender. Maybe we should have a "corridor" of fame for hierarchy and keep the "hall" for players?! :D

2nd best striker we have had in my time. 65 goals in 2 1/2 years. His goals fired us to promotion in 1990 which of course laid the foundations for our history making season the following year. He scored the best goal I have seen from a Blues player (v Wigan) and his most amazing achievement was to score 29 league teams in a relegation side.

I will repeat my vote from the second round and encourage others to support the nomination of Roy Hollis. This man is Southend United's all-time leading goalscorer, with 135 goals in 260 games - better than a goal every other game. Billy Best scored 123 goals in 246 games, so Roy has more goals at a better strike rate than Billy, and yet Billy is already enshrined whilst Roy has a single nomination.

Roy Hollis wasn't blessed with sublime skills, and had an awkward gait (though not absurd) and appearance that saw him christened 'Gormless Hollis' by some of the Southend faithful. But he got himself in the right places at the right times and used his talents to become Southend's greatest ever goalscorer - a record that is unlikely to ever be broken. Our past experiences with Stan and Freddy show that any prolific striker we have is likely to be sold on quickly to a 'bigger' club. So join me and nominate Roy Hollis - 135 goals in a Blue shirt deserves inclusion in this Hall of Fame.
