SOUTHEND United head coach Kevin Maher insists the club’s revamped scouting network remains in pursuit of new players.

Blues will not be adding to their squad before Saturday’s trip to Altrincham.

But Maher is still actively pursuing new signings.

“We’ve covered loads of games in the last three weeks,” said the Shrimpers boss.

“Players are being lined up but it’s not always easy to get them over the line.

“It takes a few things that need doing for that to happen.

“We are actively looking but it’s got to be the right ones.”
