On Saturday against AFC Wimbledon two Southend fans and their families were invited pitch side to meet their favourite Blues player and got a chance to go behind the scenes and see what goes on prior to kick off at Roots Hall.
After recently receiving an email from Jack saying it was his grandad's 70th Birthday we invited them along to be part of our matchday experience.
Aaron and his family have been through a tough year, so we wanted to invite them along to put a smile on their faces.
Both of their experiences started with a tour around the ground and they were given the chance to have some photos on the pitch and in the dugout.
We then went behind-the-scenes and into the press room and tunnel area where both family’s got to meet some of the players and a chance to catch a few snaps with the team.
If you want to or know of someone who would like to do this at a future game make sure to contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
We will be continuing to give fans experiences such as the one above throughout the whole of the 2019/20 campaign at Roots Hall.
So if you know someone in mind who you think is deserving of a bit of behind the scenes access and wants to come and meet their favourite player pre-game or celebrate a birthday in a way that they or you will never forget, please get in contact with us now.
