Blues will face Mick McCarthy's Ipswich Town at Roots Hall
Southend United’s first home friendly of their 2014-15 pre-season campaign has been confirmed, with Championship side Ipswich Town visiting Roots Hall.
Mick McCarthy’s side will visit on Tuesday 29th July, kick-off 7:45pm.
Ipswich finished ninth in the Championship last season, just missing out on a place in the play-offs by four points.
McCarthy will be hoping to improve on that this time around as they look for promotion to the Premier League.
The game will provide a good test for Phil Brown’s side ahead of the new campaign in League 2, as they also get set to look for promotion.
Ticket details for the game, and all other pre-season friendlies will be announced in due course.
