The matchday programme for this weekend’s game against Barrow AFC is on sale.
Southend United’s first game of 2021 sees them welcome last year’s National League champions, who have recently appointed Michael Jolley as manager, to Roots Hall (3pm KO).
Roots Review features an interview with striker Simeon Akinola. The 28-year-old talks about getting another chance in the Football League with Blues, his wait to get involved after signing, scoring his first goal for the club on Boxing Day and specifically his mindset as Blues begin the New Year with some crucial games ahead of them.
Akinola’s integration to the team has coincided with an upturn in form, but after 11 points from six games the former Barnet front man said Blues haven’t achieved anything yet and the hard work starts now.
