It should not come as a surpise to anyone, but our upcoming reds v blues match on Sunday 29 March is not going to happen. Given the current situation I have decided it is better to call it off now.
We still have matches in the diary for Saturday 25 April (international friendly against Cardiff City) and Thursday 7 May (James A’s testimonial in Southend). I shall advise you closer to the date what is happening with those games.
For now, stay healthy, stay strong.
Love you all,
That Thursday date is tempting as I could visit my parents in Southend if I’m working in London.
awesome! I’ll definitely try and do it then if there’s a space available
In more positive news, the Royal Parks have just told me I get the money from the booking back.
We were supposed to play a football match tomorrow. That is not happening obviously, and that makes me sad. James’ testimonial at Roots Hall next month is not taking place either. Possibly it will be postponed until next year, but because all staff at Southend United have been furloughed they cannot confirm anything atm.
One day we will play football again.
