As the winter in the UK continues to be unsettled, Southend United took the opportunity, in mid February, to escape and head towards the sunshine of Portugal's Algarve coast.

Because of the bad weather in the UK, Phil Brown's men had been struggling to train on a good surface. The excellent pitch at Vale do Lobo meant that the team had the opportunity to get down to some intense training sessions. They even managed a friendly game against Aalborg from the Danish Super League who were also away on a training camp.
