BLUES SEND 91ST BIRTHDAY MESSAGE TO LIFELONG SUPPORTER

22 December 2020

Southend United, together with Southend United Community & Educational Trust, arranged to surprise a supporter on his 91st birthday last weekend.

At a very difficult time for all, lifelong supporter Tony Faulkner had to spend his birthday on Saturday in a care home and due to the pandemic hasn’t been able to see his family other than through a window since March.

A huge supporter of the Blues, with six season card holders in his family, he had a Southend United birthday cake which was accompanied with a special personalised message from the players and a birthday card arranged by the Club and the Trust.

By no means an ideal way to celebrate the occasion, again through a window and at a distance, but it certainly put a smile on his face which was great to see.
