Southend United played their first home game against Millwall last night and beat them 2-1
to record a good confidence boosting victory ahead of their opening fixture away to Coventry City. The 'friendly' fixture was their first outing at Roots Hall since the final game of last season when the Shrimpers secured their league 1 status with the dramatic win over Sunderland.
The Shrimpers first home fixture of the new season will see them playing host to Blackpool on Saturday 10th August.
We are look forward to working with Southend United for a third season and want to wish the team and everyone at Roots Hall a successful season pushing all the way for promotion!
Leyton Orient play host to Premier League newcomers Norwich City this coming Saturday 27th August, The O's return to League 2 following their National League Championship winning season.
This will mark their first home fixture since the untimely and very sad death of their Manager Justin Edinburgh, both this fixture and their first home game of the season against Cheltenham Town on the Saturday 3rd August will prove to be extremely emotional for all concerned.
This will be our second season working with Leyton Orient, our thoughts will be with the team and everyone involved with the club, here's to another successful season and a determined challenge for promotion.
Incidentally Southend United and Leyton Orient have been drawn together in the same Carabao Cup group, all the best to both teams!
Chelmsford City will see Aldershot Town visit the Melbourne Stadium on Saturday for their first home fixture, The Clarets kick off their National League South campaign at home to Hampton on the 3rd August hoping they can go one better than the play off place they achieved last season.
This will be our first full season working with Chelmsford City having taken on the contract the beginning of March this year, we would like to wish the team and everyone at the club every success this season!
We are very proud to be working with all three clubs and value their support in return.
