SOUTHEND United striker Jason Williams has joined Chelmsford City on a month long loan deal.

The 19-year-old made two substitute appearances for the Shrimpers last season but has yet to figure so far this term.

And he will now be spending at least the next month with the Conference South club.

Williams came through the youth system at Roots Hall and would have worked with Clarets coach Kevin Maher when he was working with the Shrimpers’ youngsters last season.
