Shrimpers travel to Needham Market for new friendly

21 July 2011 10:14
Needham who? They are in the Ryman League Division One North apparantly, and we'll be sending an eleven there next Monday. And another one, pre-season friendly that is. Southend United will travel to Ryman Division One North side Needham Market on Monday, July 25th; kick-off 19.45. It's in Suffolk apparantly for you hardy souls who might want to take a look; Scotland, that was easy! (A 'Day Return' nearer the fixture.) They are nicknamed the 'Marketmen', no, really. It fills a nice gap between the two home games against Ipswich Town this Friday and Norwich City next Thursday.
