The South East Essex Gunners (SEEGUNNERS) is the official Arsenal Supporters Club for the South East Essex Region. Our main base is in Rayleigh but we have members across the area from Southend to Basildon .
The club was officially formed in October 2004 and at the start of the season the membership had grown to nearly 300 members. The club was formed because of the number of young supporters in the Rayleigh / Southend area that had no link with Arsenal and could not get tickets to watch their team play.
In the three years since being established, the club have:-
- Organised three Family Fun Days at Rayleigh Town where up to 500 people have attended each one and have helped raised over £2,000 in total for charity (Childline and Willow Foundation).
- Over 1,500 tickets have been allocated to supporters club members allowing many people, especially children, an opportunity to get to a game.
- Regular updates are sent by e-mail to all members outlining future events and ticket availability.
- Coach transport has been organised for a number of games where a large group of tickets have been allocated in the Family Enclosure.
- Tours of the Emirates Stadium / Highbury have been arranged via the club.
- Local football training sessions have been organised
- Large screens have been organised locally for watching away games.
- Provided teams at the annual Supporters Club Tournaments played at Highbury.
The SEEGUNNERS Committee is made up of the following people:-
Mark is the Chairman of the SEEGUNNERS.
Ian is the Treasurer / Ticket Secretary.
Lionel is the Secretary.
There are also a number of other individuals who play an active role in running the club.

Match Day Tickets
We often receive requests for Arsenal match tickets, both home and away. Whilst on occasions we do have access to spare seats, the best way is to contact the official Arsenal website and call the box office. Another option would be to visit Ticket Review. Follow us on Twitter to receive instant notifications when we have extra seats. FanSeats (www.fanseats.co.uk) is another option, this website compares Arsenal ticket prices to give good deals. The Facebook Group also notifies of any face-value tickets on offer. Well worth joining.
Throughout the season we are lucky enough to work with Arsenal and get some great prices for hospitality. The packages normally include transport, match ticket and corporate hospitality packages for some of the Premier League matches. Whilst we can never guarantee the match we always try and accommodate travelling fans.
Arsenal Football Team
We are all passionate fans of Arsenal and with this we will fully back our team no matter the results or position in the league. Whilst we are open for debate, this is, after all football and therefore we want to keep it light-hearted. When we go to the matches we go as a group but feel free to go and do your own thing near the stadium. We always travel by public transport to the Arsenal matches and we try and set the times the week before. If you prefer to travel in vehicle then we are happy to tell you where we will be and at what time. Football is the best sport in the world so we try to enjoy it as much as we can.
We try to update the website as much as we can but for any other queries then please contact us via email here. We are always looking for more Arsenal fans so please tell your friends about us. The more people we have attending the SEE Gunners supporters club the better it is all around.
