Blues duo pen new deals

Southend United have confirmed that Jason Demetriou and Nathan Ralph have signed new deals with the Roots Hall Stadium club.

Experienced Cypriot international, Demetriou has appeared 178 times for the Shrimpers since arriving from Walsall in 2016. The player has penned a one-year deal with the option of a further twelve months with the Vanarama National League outfit.

Left-back Ralph has signed a similar deal: “I’ve had an unfortunate couple of years with two long-term injuries so I’m happy to sign and be able to focus on my football,” he told

“It’s been nice to get back out there with the players, starting pre-season with them, after so many months in the gym and working alone.

“I’m pleased to have signed for Southend again and I feel after being out for so long I’ve got a bit of a point to prove so I want to show that.
