Issue 43 CUP FINAL SPECIAL – available to pre-order now

12 Mar

THE latest issue of All At Sea is brought to you with fanfares, bunting and champagne* as Southend celebrate reaching a Wembley cup final for the first time in their history.
As the team managed to get this far, defeating League One opponents despite a horrendous injury list, we have decided to pull out all the stops too, and bring you a 40-page bumper cup final special.
It will be available for the normal price of £1 and will be on sale from Saturday as the countdown begins.
Inside, we’ve included an interview with Drewe Broughton, the hero of our 2004 LDV Vans Trophy campaign, kindly donated to us by Lee Morgan.
Tony Agg remembers the heartache of coming a penalty kick away from reaching our Wembley dream almost 20 years ago.
Peter Baker gives us some insight into how Southend ended up making their only Wembley appearance, in bizarre fashion, in 1930, and what happened that day.
Piers Hewitt tells of the time he first visited Wembley – and it was a far cry from how you would have expected it to be. Peter Searles has even let all the emotion get to him and has written a poem.
There will also be an in-depth report of both legs of the Area Final so you can relive them all over again, as well as a full lowdown on how to get the best out of your day at Wembley.
As we’re all telling the players not to be distracted from league duties, we’ll be practising what we preach and there’s a full round up of recent away games, previews of games coming up plus some inevitable column inches on the controversial return of Bilel Mohsni.
Joseph Rutter makes his debut within our pages to look back at some of our best ever loan signings in the wake of Ben Reeves’ influential month at Roots Hall.
All this and plenty more is inside, and it can be yours by seeing our sellers on Saturday outside the club shop on Victoria Avenue and at the Shakespeare Drive entrance. It will also be on sale at Plymouth and Fleetwood home games, on Travelzone coaches to Rochdale, Bradford, and Wembley, and online here (where a selection of back issues are also available). You can order your copy now, and it will be sent first class as soon as the fanzine is back from the printers later this week.


* Not actually included in the £1 cover price.
