Weston Becomes First Summer Signing

Weston Becomes First Summer Signing

Myles Weston has today become manager Phil Brown's first summer signing ahead of the 2014-15 campaign.

The 26 year old moves to Roots Hall on a two year deal following his release by League 1 side Gillingham. He's predominantly a left winger, but he can also play through the middle as a striker, and since coming through Charlton's youth set up he actually made his Football League debut back in a loan spell with Notts County, who he subsequently joined on a permanent basis.

He then moved to Brentford, before spending the last two years with Gillingham.

In total so far he has made 292 career appearances across all competitions, and scored 28 times. 43 of those appearances, and two of those goals came in 2013-14.

Speaking to the Official Site as the signing was announced, manager Phil Brown said.

'I'm delighted to have Myles joining us here. His pace and trickery will cause defences in this division all sorts of problems. He knows what it takes to win promotion from League 2, having done so with Gillingham a couple of years ago. He's got that experience and should have a big part to play for us next season.'

Weston himself said of the move.

'I'm really pleased to have finalised the move to Southend and I can't wait to get started in pre season. I met with the manager and was really enthused by his plans for the club. I immediately wanted to be a part of that, and I'm looking forward to the future.'
