The Echo is at Death's Door. Nearly all the full-time staff have been let go. Most items are regurgitated press releases. If someone sent them a match report they would put if on their webpages at once.
Taylov is right about there having been reductions in Echo sports staff and the Southampton paper's Non League Reporter did leave unfortunately. In fairness though, The Echo did manage to keep a significant local sports coverage a lot longer than most provincial papers of its size.
