Saturday’s match against Coventry City saw 10 Armed Forces personnel come down to Roots Hall as part of our long-standing partnership with Tickets for Troops.
Out of this group we selected one member and his friend to go behind the scenes to take a look at what goes on prior to kick-off at Southend United Football Club.
The pair were given a tour of the ground, taken around the changing rooms, given pitch-side access and were able to get some autographs and pictures of the Blues players as they arrived ahead of the game.
Darren served in the Army for numerous years and travelled all over the world in the process and supported the club wherever he went, so it was our pleasure to give him an experience to remember.
