Blues youngsters pen pro-deals

Southend United have confirmed that six of their up and coming youngsters have signed professional deals with the Roots Hall Stadium outfit.

A number of the Blues youth graduates featured in the first-team as the club found themselves relegated from Sky Bet League One.

Third-year scholars Ide Osimeh, Matt Rush, Miles Mitchell-Nelson, O’Shane Stewart and Terrell Egbri have all signed one-year deals, while right-sided defender, Rob Howard, has penned a one-year deal with the option of another twelve months ahead of the 2020/21 League Two campaign.
