Historic image from 1961...
Unlike the players of today, the players of the 1960s were not the pampered bunch of superstars you would expect.
They were expected to provide their own training kit and would train on the Roots Hall pitch, something the groundsman would have something to say about nowadays!
Not a matching kit amongst this group of Southend United players from 1961.
Thanks to David Goody and Peter Miles.
