We are looking forward to the JPT games against you.
As a lot of us will be making a day of it in (kiss-me-quick hats and ****les) can you advise the best drinking places before the match at your place.
As for the drinking delights of Leyton, The Coach and Horses is the only one near the ground left, The Birkbeck is near The Tube Station but is a bit of a treck to the ground.
The Supporters club welcomes away fans with their supporters club card (limited though).
Am certain these two games will be up to the usual ****ney/Essex Boy encounters of the past.

Yeah fair do's, the Cliff is ok for away fans....anywhere closer to the ground can be a bit naughty and you will need a 'home' ticket to get in. Also, with the Cliff it is a three minute walk from Southend Central train station so easier for when you get off the train.

Cliff pub was very popular with Brighton fans when they would play us at Roots Hall.

I love all this Essex vs ****ney thing when we play orient.....
Leyton was in Essex til 1965 and is over 5 miles from Eastcheap so the only ****ney Orient fan is one born to parents with particularly good hearing.....

Loughton - the only way is Orange!
Well this is all lovely isn't it ?

If you are making a day of it try going to Old Leigh and the boozers there. You can get your ****les whilst you at it!
Leigh Broadway has the grand (or at least did have) and there are a couple of pubs coming in that way on way to Southend.
As for by the ground, like the pubs in Leyton, I really wouldn't bother.

By the way the river lea was the boundary line between Essex and London but has long since changed. I do draw the line mind when people in South Woodford say that they are eastenders !
