We are continuing to make a number of improvements to our website for the 2010/11 season and key to this is adding extra features to the website via new writers and contributors.So you may ask, what kind of contributions are we looking for to be placed on the website? The answer is anything you want, perhaps you wish to write an opinion piece on the current situation, the past match, the next game, a trip down memory lane, your favourite Blues side of all time amongst others.In short we place no restrictions and no boundaries. It can be related to Southend United Football Club, football in general, or the winters Ashes series if that's on your mind! (And we know we have many Aussie Shrimpers who may like to have a word on that matter!)How often you wish to write is also down to you, and any previous journalistic experience is not required, just write to us at the address given below and as editor I'll follow it up personally. We can look at setting up a personal column suited to your particular take on events, or add you to the rota of writers covering behind-the-scenes, ex-players, previews or the matches themselves.Whatever happens this season, it's going to be nothing less that interesting!
