The face of football in Southend was to change forever following a meeting held in the Blue Boar Public House on May 19th 1906. Southend United were formed at a meeting assembled by landlord Oliver Trigg and a band of fellow enthusiasts.

Major club successes in their history include the record tumbling Division Four winning side in 1981, Division Three promotion in 1991, the League One title in 2006, cup shocks against the Premier League big boys Manchester United and Chelsea and the play-off successes of 2005 and 2014 – the most recent of which was sealed in the most dramatic fashion at Wembley Stadium as a penalty shootout booked Blues’ return to the third-tier.

Daniel Bentley stepped up to deny Sam Wood's effort to complete the League One march under the arch.

It had all looked so different in extra time as it looked for all the world that Joe Jacobson's 25-yard free-kick had given Wycombe the win.

As time ticked on and went into stoppage time, up stepped Joe Pigott to slot home in the 122nd minute to take it to the lottery of penalties.

This was to be Blues first return to the League One in five years.

After a solid first season on the fringes of the play-offs in a new division, Southend United with the Championship in their sights continue to be a club on the rise, both on and off the pitch with an exciting future in prospect for the Club, the supporters and the area.
