Southend United's annual Junior Blues Meet the Players day was once again a huge success at Roots Hall!
Junior Blues members of all ages were invited down to Roots Hall on Thursday 25th October to take part in a private training session.
The day started with all the players signing each Junior Blues 2018/19 Squad Photo. This was also a chance for some cheeky selfies and even Sammy the Shrimp popped down to pose with fans for the day.
Following the signings was a warm-up drill, followed by some quick training drills, involving passing, heading and some fun and games between the players and staff.
Chris Powell got his squad together as they played a short game of football on the pitch and let the players roam free, scoring some great goals in the process.
Once the training had ended and the players had warmed down Powell left alone, encouraged all the Junior Blues members to come onto the pitch for a special treat in which he let all the children experience the thrill of being on a football pitch, by letting the run from one stand to the other.
