Paul Sturrock: Perfect way to sign off

Sturrock was replaced by Phil Brown two weeks before the Johnstone's Paint Trophy final, but spent the day with the League Two club's supporters for the game.

He travelled to the national stadium on the supporters' coach before sharing a drink and sitting among them during the match.

Sturrock told Echo News: "Sunday was a superb experience and a day I will never forget.

"In all my years in football, it was like nothing I had ever experienced before.

"I'd just like to say a massive thank you to all of the Blues fans. I hope they all enjoyed the day as much as I did.

"It was the perfect way to bring my time with Southend to an end."

e was right to leave, but not just because of the money City were coming into. If I remember rightly he had a reasonable amount of chances to shine at City, but he never passed the bloody ball. Loads of aimless dribbles and 40 yard shots and not much else. I would say that if he had learnt to be a bit more of a team player he may have done better at City.
