On Saturday the club will pay its respects to Sid Broomfield who sadly passed away two weeks ago.
Sid was only 30 when he was handed the task of building a new stadium for Southend United.
The visit of AFC Wimbledon will be the first opportunity for us to pay tribute to a club legend, a man whose contribution to the very fabric of Southend United will never be forgotten.
A member of the Broomfield family will lay a wreath in the centre circle before a minute’s applause is observed prior to kick-off.
Saturday’s programme is dedicated to Sid with the cover changing to a one-off style of that resembling the first game at Roots Hall against Norwich City in 1955, as well as an obituary included inside. These are on sale at the normal price of £3 and available from the sellers located around the ground and at half-time.
Please join us at Roots Hall as we remember a Southend United legend.
