GREG Halford has joined Waterford after leaving Southend United.

The versatile 36-year-old made 16 appearances for the Shrimpers last season.

But Blues boss Phil Brown opted to look elsewhere.

"I spoke a couple of times to Greg,” said Brown.

“He’s a very laid-back character and he’s had a first class career.

“He was expecting an offer on day one at the end of last season and I think he got a bit disillusioned when that didn’t happen.

“I wanted to change the dynamics of the changing room altogether and if we’ve lost Greg to someone else it’s not the end of the world.

“We will just have to replace him.”
