Carefully selected and researched by Peter Miles and David Goody, this book recounts the highs and lows of some of the greatest matches in the history of Southend United Football Club.
There is nothing quite like going to a match that perhaps from the outset looks nothing more than “just another game” but at the end of the ninety minutes leaves you fulfilled and excited. These matches can take many forms, great comebacks, crushing victories, triumphs over adversity and just plain old thrilling football matches. We have carefully chosen our selection to cover the breadth of the clubs near one hundred year history. We hope the fifty games chosen will revive some happy memories and recall just some of the great players that have represented Southend United.
