It’s now two strikers for the price of one on another SUEPA Saturday

14 December 2018

Tomorrow, thanks to the Southend United Ex-Players Association (SUEPA), we will now not only be welcoming back to Roots Hall Lee Barnard, but also his former striking partner James Walker...

Often playing as a winger, James once memorably came off the bench to rescue a point against Orient in the sixth minute of injury time after beating four defenders to score.

Like Lee, James also scored on his league debut for us, in a game against Bournemouth in which Lee also scored. Indeed, they both notched the goals in another win later that season, so it will be great to re-unite them at Roots Hall on Saturday.

Be sure to be in your seat early on Saturday to help give both James and Lee a top welcome as they both get introduced to the crowd shortly before kick-off.
