Sky Sports Come Calling For Shrimpers

Sky Sports Come Calling For Shrimpers

Sky Sports will be coming to Roots Hall Wednesday week looking to see if they can capture another upset with Southend overcoming Leyton Orient in the Johnstone's Paint Trophy.

The Shrimpers won the first leg of the Area Final at The Matchroom Stadium earlier this week so take a 1-0 lead into the second leg and this has seen Sky Sports pick this game up for live coverage.

With tickets priced just £15, and Southend just 90-minutes from Wembley, despite the TV camera coming to town you'd expect a good turnout with Orient already selling 1,000 tickets!
