Gary Deegan - joined Southend United on a three month deal

First published in Sport by

SOUTHEND United have signed midfielder Gary Deegan on a three month contract.

As was revealed in Echosport this week, the 26-year-old had been training with Blues.

And he has since impressed enough to be handed a deal.

Deegan, who was also on trial with Blues during pre-season, began his career in Ireland with Shelbourne before spells with Kilkenny City, Longford Town, Galway United and Bohemians followed.

The Irishman was then snapped up by Coventry City in July 2009 and went on to make 43 appearances for the Sky Blues.

However, the midfielder then moved to Scotland with Hibernian for the 2012/13 campaign, where he made 23 appearances and scored one goal.

Last season he came back to England with Northampton Town and played 30 times for the Cobblers.

Deegan goes straight in to the Southend squad for tomorrow's game at Carlisle United.

what do the moaners do with themselves all summer/

we've signed a midfielder because timlim is injured, atkinson is just coming back from injury, leonard picked up a knock midweek.

we haven't signed a striker becasue we've got corr, barnard, coulthirst, weston, layne and williams

in the unlikely event of phil brown going to crystal palace, i hope he takes some of our more miserable fans with him

Shrimper Nation I am not sure if Barnet Shrimper is moaning, just stating a fact that we need a proven goalscorer, that was evident the other night against Wimbledon, we haven't got one yet , and the bunch you mentioned, well the jury is still out!
I would assume a panic buy today by PB, why did Northampton let him go?
Just stayed in the League last season
As a united front we all agree some how 3 points tomorrow.

Do desperately need at least one good quality striker but the reality is they certainly don't come cheap.
