The Shrimpers are my local club and are unfortunately a complete basket case. Yesterday’s game was halted for 8 minutes as fans protested on the pitch against the current owner Ron Martin, the second pitch invasion in consecutive matches. So many problems off the pitch, echoes of the blue few with, in this case Sainsbury’s pulling out of a proposed ground purchase just over 10 years ago. It’s been a downward spiral for years and although hopeful I’m not confident that the future bodes well for this well loved club. I was told there were more than 6000 there yesterday which shows great support for a National League team.
