It was great to see Ian Benjamin on Saturday in the first match day event of the season organised by the Southend United Ex Players Association (SUEPA).

Benji, who of course put the ball in the Bury net back in May 1991 and did much more besides during a two-year spell at the start of the 1990’s, was returning to Roots Hall for the first time in many years and was eager to catch up with fans during his afternoon with us.

The welcome you all gave him as he was introduced to fans on the pitch shortly before kick-off was really quite special and we very much hope to see him again soon.

Further pictures of Benji’s visit are up on the SUEPA Facebook page where you can keep up to date with all SUEPA news including details of their next match day event which we hope to announce very soon.
