Contact the Registrar at with any queries.

Sign up by Direct Debit

This is the easiest way to join the Old Southendian Association in two simple steps.

Step 1 : set up your payment via our secure Direct Debit network, GoCardless
Step 2 : complete your Old Southendian Association online application form

You will be directed to the correct form for applicants who have set up a Direct Debit after you have completed your payment with GoCardless

Once your first payment has been received, if necessary we will adjust your Direct Debit payments so your membership is paid each 10th April.

Note for school leavers: you must be allowed to make payments by Direct Debit from your current account - you need to be 18 or over.
You could ask your parent or carer to pay from their account if you are not yet 18, or sign up by Standing Order.

Sign up by Standing Order

To join by Standing Order, you will need to complete the following three steps:

Step 1 : print off a Standing Order Mandate form and complete with your details
Step 2 : write a cheque for your first membership payment of £10 and send to us with your Standing Order Mandate form

Cheques must be made payable to Old Southendian Association

Please remember to include your cheque and Standing Order Mandate form, with your name and address and send to:
