Powell switched Blues for Iron

Frontman Callum Powell has joined newly-promoted Vanarama National League outfit Braintree Town following the conclusion of his cont with Southend United.

Powell spent two and a half years at Southend but was sidelined during the last campaign, suffering a posterior cruciate ligament injury during the Blues National League fixture at Aldershot Town in September 2023.

Speaking to www.southendunited.co.uk, Blues boss Kevin Maher said:  “Powelly was one of the first players that we brought into the building and what he added in terms of his energy and his work rate was really important for us.

“He’s a player that will make the most out of everything he gets and I admire him so much for his infectious attitude, the effort he puts in and his personality around the place.

“He suffered an injury last season that most would take so long to get back from, but the way he managed to come back towards the end of the season shows his character.

“He was always a spark and selfless for the team so we’re grateful to him for all that he did for us during a difficult time and we wish him nothing but the best.”
