Another trip to the seaside is confirmed for Yeovil Town next season following the relegation of Southend United to the National League.
The Shrimpers’ fate was sealed despite winning 2-1 at Barrow today because they needed either Colchester United or Scunthorpe United to lose to stand a chance of staying up.
Our last visit to Roots Hall came at the start of our season in the Championship when a Kevin Dawson strike was the difference in Capital One Cup tie.
Before that you have to go back to April 2010 when a goalless draw in Essex in League One, with the fixture at Huish Park settled by a single Dean Bowditch strike in November 2009.
Those with slightly longer memories will recall Southend being where a late Phil Jevons’ strike all but clinched promotion from League Two with a 1-0 win back in 2005.
Last weekend, Grimsby Town were confirmed as the other side to drop out of the League – that will be a somewhat chillier stroll down the prom, I bet.
