Images from our home game against Mansfield Town where we paid tribute to our troops
Above is a gallery of images from our home game against Mansfield Town where we paid tribute to those who have risked their lives serving our country.
Dan Rodgers, who arranged the event, said: "The Essex Military Support Association were honoured to be asked by Southend United to put on a parade in remembrance of those who have fallen, those who have served and those who are still risking their lives for our country.
“Showing support for troops overseas is more important now than ever before and with Southend United generously opening its doors to local military units, to show its support for our armed forces.
“The welcoming from the Southend United fans was overwhelming and it was fantastic to see such heartfelt support. On Behalf of the Essex Military Support Association I would like to say thank you to Southend United for enabling its local communities to show their gratitude for the men and women who fight to protect this country."
