History Books: Pilgrims vs Blues

10 August 2018

Let’s open the archives and look at the history between Plymouth and Southend...

The first-ever meeting between the two sides took place on Saturday 4th December 1920 at the Kursaal in the English Division 3 (OLD), with the game ending in a 2-1 home victory for Blues. 

The last time Blues won away to Plymouth was back in April 1999, this game ended in a 3-0 victory for Southend after a brace from Barry Conlon and a goal from Scott Houghton. 

Blues have played the Pilgrims a total of 72 times with 25 games being won by Plymouth, 24 being won by Blues and 23 games ending in a draw. 

The only cup competition that the two sides have ever met in is the FA Cup (1984). 

Blues midfielders have loved scoring at Plymouth in the last 20 years with a total of 5 of the last 12 goals scored at Home Park coming from players in the centre of the field. 

In terms of fixture scheduling, we have travelled to Home Park to face Plymouth first in the season 14 times out of the 35 season we have played against them.
