As of November 2023, we have 466 ex-player/coaching staff members, spanning the decades right from the 1950’s to the present day. Members include all 12 of the players who took part on that famous night back in 1979 when Southend held European champions to a draw in the Roots Hall snow, and there are now ten seasons in the 1970’s and 1980’s where every squad member has become part of SUEPA.
There are all the names you would hope and expect to be in SUEPA, including Tony Bentley, Billy Best, Bill Garner, Mervyn Cawston, Frankie Banks, Dave Cusack, Richard Cadette, Steve Phillips, David Crown, Roy McDonough, Steve Tilson, Freddy Eastwood, Shaun Goater, Ryan Lennard and many many more. Dave Webb, Barry Fry and Paul Sturrock are amongst our coaching staff members.
SUEPA President is none other than Adam Barrett, who is hugely supportive of what we do.
