Pro Deals Offers To Young Shrimpers
Professional contracts have been offered to three youngsters at Southend.
Head of youth Ricky Duncan, as he told The Echo, is delighted by the promotion of the three players: 'It's fantastic. Since Phil Brown came in he's been to a number of our games, and that's a big boost for all the players to have the first-team manager watching.
'It's fantastic for everyone involved in the youth set-up that they've been given this chance.'
Those offered deal are Mitchell Pinnock, Seedy Njie and Ryan Auger.
Pinnock made his debut recently against Aldershot under Phil Brown, with Njie featuring in the Carling Cup under former boss Paul Sturrock. Auger has also stepped up under Brown.
