Kevin Bond resigns as Southend United boss after six defeats to open season

Southend United have accepted the resignation of Kevin Bond to the 2019-20 season after a dreadful start.
The Shrimpers have dropped their opening six League One matches and sit in place, using Bolton beneath them because of their 12-point deduction.
Chairman Ron Martin satisfied with Bond on Friday morning and that meeting concluded tendering his resignation.
Bond helped direct Southend to security and had taken charge at Roots Hall in April.
“Kevin is a sincere professional coach with enormous experience in the business. His accomplishments in maintaining the club League One last season needs to be acknowledged and will be remembered from the club’s fans,” Martin explained.
“Regrettably the euphoria experienced at the conclusion of last season hasn’t translated to the pitch so far this year.
“But I remain confident that the players we’ve got at Southend United, including the powerful signings created by Kevin Bond, will allow a successful year under the guidance of a new supervisor.
“The hunt for this individual commences today.”
