My special guest on the show this week was former footballer Anton Ferdinand, whose career included spells in the Premier League with West Ham United, Sunderland and Queens Park Rangers, plus a couple of seasons with Southend United.

Anton joined me on the phone for a chat about his new Billericay-based youth football project the Ferdinand Football Group, and we also discussed racism in football – about which he recently took part in a TV documentary – and the current (and very different) fortunes of two of his old clubs, West Ham and Southend.

The interview can be heard on the link from 00:33:20.

For more information about the Ferdinand Football Group, visit their website. There are also pages on Twitter and Facebook

In EFL League Two, Southend United kept their survival hopes alive with a 2-1 win at home to Leyton Orient, whose remaining hopes of reaching the play-offs are now over, but Barrow’s subsequent win at Forest Green Rovers on Tuesday night means that the Shrimpers are now all but relegated to the National League – where Dagenham & Redbridge won their third match in a row with a 3-0 win at King’s Lynn Town.
