Who do you guys consider our main Rival to be?

I think that Grays is our big derby even when we weren't in the same league, but Southend, Ricay, Dagenham, Gravesend and now Stevenage I imagine are all going to be big games as well.

grays has some appeal but its mainly stimpson generated..

stevenage isnt really arch rival stuff they have consistantly been way above us in the league, crowds, ground etc etc.. but they have never beaten us in a competitive match so i reckon we just annoy them..

daggers and fleet are fairly recent the fleet edging it with the ryman season 'history'

southend .. nah, we have had some fun in recent years but us considering southend rivals is like southend considering west ham rivals..

its billercay by a country mile

in my opinion of course <img src="/forum/images/graemlins/wink.gif" alt="" />

Has to be Grays, there is no real rivalry anymore with Ricay the two clubs have gone in different directions.
The Grays games are the ones to stir up bad feelings by both sets of supporters. The way Stimpson left in 202 to take the grays Managers job still leaves a bad feeling and I am sure we are all looking frward to giveing him plenty of stick on Boxing day.

Very tough. For me it's a toss up between Grays, Southend and the ricay.

I hate Southend with a vengeance and was in a foul mood after they won the play off final.

I've never particularly liked Grays although they have some great individual players. Will never like ricay either. I can't pretend to like them because I don't but it's strange because although they are not in the same division as us I still dislike them.

I agree with you Ken about AlderSHIT, never liked them but I strongly go along with Richie, Scum-end are the ones I really cant stand, ... hope they go straight back down this season.

I think for local rivalry its gotta be Billericay Town and Grays Athletic, especially with the history between us and Grays over the last couple of years.

Competitive rivalries have to be Aldershit, Gravesend, Dagenham, Stevenage and Southend when we play them in cup games.

Rivalries for reasons other than football - Halifax Town.

I'd like to say Southend, I them with a passion. Our rivalry can never be fulfilled until we get into the same league as them. I to think as Grays as our rivals, Its not something I have ever really been into, they seem to us more. But seeing as they are scum, i will be more than happy to be their rivals for the time being.

Daggers, its not much of a rivalry, havent really played that much together.

Gravesend, Stevenage and Aldershit I all for various reasons including breaking Boylans leg, and their thug fans etc.

We just have to hope we can get some good rivalry going with a side soon, I dont want to ever not Southend.
