SOUTHEND Manor have been boosted ahead of tomorrow’s Essex Senior League clash with West Essex by the news that Luke Jackson will remain with the club on loan.

The striker made the temporary move from Basildon United but there was some doubt as to whether he would be recalled by the Isthmian North club after numerous players departed earlier this week.

However, it has been confirmed that Jackson will stay with Craig Waters’ Manor.

Manor, who are unbeaten in their last two outings, are 16th in the standings and would leapfrog West Essex by bagging all three points at Southchurch Park.
