Up the Shrimpers!

I rarely write about football on this site (“soccer” to my trans-Atlantic chums), but this is just too good. Southend United, my local team, defeated none other than Manchester United tonight! Southend are currently having a bit of a struggle in the Championship (they were promoted at the end of last season), whilst of course Man U. are in the Premiership. This was real David and Goliath stuff… unbelievable!

BBC Sport: Southend 1-0 Man Utd.

I can’t wait to tell my eldest in the morning. He’s a big Freddy Eastwood fan… ;-)
