Southend United snap up Ellis Brown following his release from Charlton Athletic

Echo: Phil Brown - pleased to have signed Ellis Brown Phil Brown - pleased to have signed Ellis Brown

ELLIS Brown has a signed a one year deal with Southend United after impressing on trial.

The youngster, who can play up front or on the wing, was released by Charlton Athletic at the end of the season.

And Shrimpers boss Phil Brown is pleased to have snapped him up.

“Ellis has come in after impressing Ricky Duncan, he then trained with the first-team a couple of times and was extremely impressive so we’re pleased to have signed him,” said Brown.

“He stayed with the first-team, trained with us and in training games has given John Egan and Jakub Sokolik real problems.

“His pace is one of his strongest attributes but he also has a real technical side to his game.

“I’m pleased we’ve been able to bring him to the club after he left Charlton. He’s an exciting prospect.”

Brown was presented to the crowd at half-time of Saturday’s game against Burton.

Let's hope he gets a chance straightaway if he impresses in pre-season. Whether he plays on the wing, or as second striker to Corr or another centre forward, we certainly need pace and someone who can unlock defences.

Look at the young talent Burton have got, which just shows that you don't always have to go for recognised players. Take Eastwood for example, major letdown, he could hardly run on Saturday, was out of breath after running a few yards!

Just read this on the Southend website: Southend United will face Cambridge United for the first time since 2005 – the year Blues won promotion to League 1, next season.

Could this be a good omen? Fingers crossed!
