Shrimpers Trust News The Elusive Roots Hall Covenant...


Supporting SUFC
Jun 16, 2004
Southend on Sea
Ever since Southend United submitted plans to Southend Borough Council for a new stadium at Fossetts Farm, there has been speculation about the existence of a covenant on the land at Roots Hall.

Despite having a copy of the Title deeds of Roots Hall and the original Trust Deed from 1950 - we have never been convinced that such a covenant exists.

Consequently - The Shrimpers Trust have been in discussions about the matter with a high-ranking Council official, and we understand there is a contractual obligation in place that ensures Roots Hall does not close until the new stadium is ready to open.

This latest news confirms there is a requirement that no demolition work will start on Roots Hall until our football club has a new home.

We will update supporters with any further details that become available; however, we wanted to share the little vital information we have been provided as soon as possible.

As ever, we encourage contact from the club's most important asset - the fans - and we are happy to be approached with any queries or concerns you may have.
