SUEPA | Mel Capleton's Return To Roots Hall

16 December 2019

It was great to see Mel Capleton back at Roots Hall on Saturday when we played Rotherham in another match day return of a former Shrimper arranged by the Southend United Ex-Players Association (SUEPA).

Our former shot-stopper at the turn of the millennium made it a family day out, bringing his wife Clare and his two young daughters Ruby and Bea to see the place where he turned in many fine performances in a Shrimpers shirt. At just three weeks old this was Bea’s first match!

Mel enjoyed his day back with us as he met old friends from his times with us and made many new friends too.

There are a number of SUEPA match day events planned for the New Year – you can keep up to date with regular news from SUEPA by following them on Facebook or Twitter.
