The National League’s Southend are planning to hold talks with one of their sponsors over a deal, meaning their stadium will now have a ‘Gilbert & Rose West Stand’.

The West Stand at Roots Hall was sponsored by local estate agents Gilbert & Rose, but an unfortunate juxtaposition means its name now unknowingly includes the name of serial killer Rose West.

The matter sparked a flurry of activity on social media, and after being made aware of the unintended reference to West, a club spokesman revealed they were likely in talks with Gilbert & Rose to “get another arrangement.” of finding words”.

The spokesman added: “They are fantastic local real estate agents and we look forward to working with them throughout this partnership which will include a number of community projects.”

The Shrimpers will start their fifth division season at home against Boreham Wood on Saturday, with tickets currently available for home fans in the West Stand on the club’s website.

Rose West was sentenced to life imprisonment in November 1995 for the murder of ten young women and girls.
