FORMER West Ham United goalkeeper David Martin is training with Southend United.

The 37-year-old shot-stopper has been in with Blues’ goalkeepers for the past few days.

And Martin was also out on the Roots Hall pitch as part of the warm up ahead of Saturday’s National League opener against Oldham Athletic.

Martin made more than 300 appearances while with MK Dons between 2010 and 2017 before spending time with both Millwall and the Hammers where he made five Premier League appearances.

The goalkeeper returned to MK Dons last season but is still eager to extend his playing career.

He told the MK Citizen back in July: “I just want to play football.

“Of course, it has to be on the right terms and that’s playing.

“It needs to be the right location and the money has to be right to a certain degree.

“ I’ve got a young family, so it needs to be worth me doing it.

“But you know your worth and you know when you’re ready to retire and I don’t think I am.”

Collin Andeng Ndi is currently Blues’ first choice goalkeeper with youth team shot-stopper Harvey Gluckstad acting as back up.

The Shrimpers are currently unable to register any new signings due to a transfer embargo which has been in place in September.

However, the club are still without a goalkeeping coach following the departure of Jerome John at the end of last season.

Martin is the son of former Blues boss Alvin who brought Shrimpers head coach Kevin Maher to Roots Hall back in 1998.
