Shrimpers boxes only after furore

Chief executive Geoffrey King apologised on the club's website after Leicester supporters in boxes let to Virgin Media ignored stewards requests to behave, not drink in sight of the pitch and refrain from making profane and derogatory remarks. The club took some time to resolve the situation, opting to put more security in the box and remove all alcohol rather than asking the occupants to leave. The boxes were occupied by Leicester supporters only instead of both Leicester and Southend supporters as was agreed. King has stated that the behaviour of other Leicester supporters was impeccable but the decision has already been taken not to sell boxes to oppositions supporters in the future. "I am sorry that this situation arose and you have my assurances that it will not happen again," he said.
