The Spitfires Invade The Essex Riviera This Tuesday Night

IT’S football under the floodlights at Roots Hall tomorrow night as the Shrimpers welcome Eastleigh F.C. to the Essex riviera.

It’s no secret that the Shrimpers have been beyond disappointing so far this season and currently things do not look to be even close to improving for Phil Brown and his Southend side.

Following on from chairman Ron Martins bizarre behavior in which he confronted the loyal Southend supporters during the second half of Saturday afternoons away defeat to Solihull Moors F.C., things are not at all rosy down at Roots Hall and with the rot taking more of a foothold day by day this could very well be the end of Phil Browns 2nd stint at Roots Hall should Eastleigh F.C. take all three points back to Hampshire.
