Brett Angell was a great Southend striker who was in the Dave Webb Managed side of the 1990/1991 season when the Shrimpers made it to the next division after finishing second behind Cambridge United. I saw many of the games that season. There were so many exciting games and Southend United were spectacular during this promotion campaign.
Brett Angell was the star striker. Often Southend played on a Friday night when at home. It used to set the weekend off very nicely. These were great days and Southend football was very exciting in the early to mid-nineties.
Eventually the higher teams noticed Brett Angell and he was bought by Everton. He was a little out of his league in the premiership table and did not make the grade. He was passed around a little among the clubs. He eventually enjoyed another great spell at Stockport County.
I will always remember him as one of Southend's finest as he always seemed to shine for the Blues.
