Profile

Southend United are managed by former player Chris Powell who returned to the club as boss in January 2018.

As a club, Southend have sampled many highs and lows throughout their history, but one of their most notable achievements came in 2006 when they faced the mighty Manchester United in the League Cup.

After beating Leeds United in the previous round, they were in high spirits going into the game and a Manchester United side that included a plethora of internationals travelled to Roots Hall and were duly beaten by the Shrimpers in one of the biggest shocks in the history of the cup and was arguably the biggest win in the history of the club.

Now plying their trade back in League One, it is current manager Phil Brown's job to try to make them an established third-tier side. With a 22,000-seater stadium in the pipeline, fans will be ebullient about the Shrimpers embarking on a rise up the Football League ladder and with a manager, who has a whole host of league experience, the future could certainly be on the way up for Southend United.
