    The Southend Manager has also been awarded the 1st Division Manager of the Year by his fellow managers. I must confess that when they went to the top after a slow start to the seaon, the most we were realy hoping for was a play-off place, and there were a few nerve-racking moments towards the end, where it was fortunate that a) they had built up a bit of a cushion and b) the chasing pack also dropped points.

    I understand season tickets are now selling fast - special rate if bought before June - and we shall see what next season brings ;)
