Default SUFC Players and Remembrance

On this Remembrance weekend I thought you may be interested in learning of the part played by SUFC players who were killed in the Great War. With both playing and former members of the team SUFC was one of the hardest teams hit I have come across. The file was to large to upload so I have put in a link here for those who would like to read their stories

www.wickford-war-memorial.com/Southend_ROH.htm

Be great to see them commemorated at the new stadium somewhere. I see the dreaded O's have quite a good section on their site about their players who were lost so hopefully this restores a litle babalnce!!

Equally if anyone has any further details of them be really interested to hear from you.

Cheers
Steve
