Southend United squad visit children's ward

17 December 2014


Members of the Southend United squad recently paid a visit to Southend Hospital to visit youngsters and their families.

The visit to the hospital is an annual event in the Blues' calendar, with members of the team handing out gifts, signing autographs and having photographs with the kids - and even some of the parents!

Boss Phil Brown said: "It's been great to visit the hospital today, and it's always good to be able to put a smile on the kids' faces.

"We all enjoyed it, and we hope the families in there, all have an enjoyable festive period over Christmas and the New Year."

Jackie Keeble, play services coordinator from Neptune Ward, said: "It was great to see Phil Brown and his squad visit the children on Neptune Ward. It brightened everyone's day."
