Southend United to announce new manager

Southend United will announce their new manager today after sacking Paul Sturrock at the weekend. The news comes just two weeks before the Shrimpers take on Crewe in the final of the Johnstone's Paint Trophy.

Southend chairman Ron Martin has confirmed Sturrock will still lead the team out at Wembley on April 7th, but said results in the league had not been good enough.
