Eastwood in dramatic return to Roots Hall

23 Mar

BLUES fans have been delighted by the loan return of hero Freddy Eastwood.
The 28-year-old left Southend for Wolves almost five years ago after three years with the Shrimpers.
During that time, he scored 49 goals in 113 games, helping the side gain promotion twice.
He scored the winning goal in the League Two play-off final against Lincoln City in May 2005.
Arguably his most famous moment was his matchwinning free kick against Carling Cup holders Manchester United which helped the club achieve probably the greatest result in their history in its centenary year.
However, there were many more moments that will be remembered in the hearts of Southend fans.
The club will now be expecting a large attendance for the crucial fixture against Cheltenham Town next Friday.
But there is more urgent business afoot for Eastwood and his new team mates as they travel to Bristol tomorrow to take on a Rovers side rejuvenated under Mark McGhee.
Southend have slipped down to 4th after an appalling display against Aldershot on Tuesday night, and will probably need five wins from the last eight to have a chance of automatic promotion.
