Blues stopper Seaden pens new deal

SOUTHEND UNITED goalkeeper, Harry Seaden, has put pen to paper on a new one-year deal at Roots Hall Stadium with the option of another twelve months.

The 19-year-old stopper has represented England at under 16’s and 17’s level and made his first-team debut for the Roots Hall Stadium outfit during the last campaign.

Speaking to, Seaden enthused: “It’s a dream come true to sign my first professional contract and it’s what I’ve always been working towards but I know the hard work starts now.

“I have to work even harder now to get to where I want to be and that’s definitely in and around the first team.

“It means a lot for me to be at Southend because from a very young age I would go to all the home games with my dad and my brother.

“It’s great to be here and with the way things have been for the club it could well be that youngsters keep getting more chances so we have to make sure we’re ready.

“I loved making my debut last season and would be great to stay involved.”

Meanwhile, former Colchester United manager, John McGreal is the latest name to be linked with the vacant managerial role at the club.
