Southend United’s 2016/17 season opens with a Roots Hall clash against Gillingham.

We actually play them in quick succession owing to the League Cup first round draw as well, but more on that shortly.

We host the side on Saturday August 6 for the opening weekend, and the first away trip of the campaign comes on August 13 when we travel to Vale Park to face Port Vale.

Christmas is kind to Phil Brown this year as both key matches are on home soil – Wimbledon on Boxing Day and Charlton Athletic on New Year’s Eve.

It does mean we begin January and 2017 on our travel though with Swindon away on January 2 and Peterborough away on January 7.

The final regular league action of the year comes on Sunday April 30 where we host Bury.

All fixtures subject to change.
