(Southend United fan)
1. Why you were looking forward to going to the ground (or not as the case may be):
ground not visited before.
Easy to find
from A5 and parked at Brooklands pub for £5
by roundabout on A5112. Then a
short five minute walk to the
Arsenal lose 2-3 to Spurs on Sky in away
stand. Locals were friendly and as we parked
home fans were asking how long the trip was
looks impressive from outside but is plain
inside with four matching stands and
nothing special about the architecture. The
pitch is obviously in good condition being
new and the view from the away end is great.
Plenty of leg room, although floodlights are
blinding if you look up at any high
The game was lifeless in first half with both teams cautious but Shrewsbury came out early from half time and ran through a series of warm up exercises and it paid off when they took an early lead.
Stewards were quick to control fans from both sides after a fracas on the pitch when a Southend defender apparently fouled the goalkeeper going for a loose ball.
Southend then took the game to Shrewsbury and deservedly equalised with 4 minutes from time when Grant volleyed home a great goal.
I thoroughly enjoyed the cottage pie at half time even if a bit pricey at £2.70p. Toilets were clean and stewards friendly. Allowed fans to sit anywhere in the whole of the away stand and no problems displaying Southend flags.
6. Comment on getting away from the ground after the game:
No problem leaving the ground but care is needed on crossing road outside the ground as traffic can be heavy and fast moving.
7. Summary of overall thoughts of the day out:
An enjoyable day out and a good football match.
