FORMER Southend United star Stan Collymore will no longer be engaging with chairman Ron Martin.

Collymore had been in talks about ways in which he could help the club moving forward.

But those discussions have now ended.

Collymore insists he agreed to be head of football operations at Blues last week but was later informed of ‘an arbitrary change in the role via email’ and has told Martin he no longer wishes to engage with him moving forward.

The Shrimpers will be in the National League next season after suffering back to back relegations.
