Southend Couldn't Offer What Straker Wanted

It was a little surprising when Anthony Straker left Southend last week to sign a contract with York City, but it was the fact that they could offer him something that we weren't able to that convinced him to move on.

Phil Brown's said in his Echo interview that Straker wanted a two year contract but he was only prepared to offer him a one year contract, even though he did want to keep the winger at Roots Hall after his successful season last term.

We didn't hang around though in signing a replacement with Myles Weston soon snapped up.

Brown did move to dismiss the suggestion that Weston was a 'knee jerk reaction', as the former Gillingham winger has been someone that he'd been looking at since last summer anyway with his ability to play on either flank or as a striker the reason he wanted to bring in the 26 year old.
