11111111 Reggie Lambe is vying to win a contract at English League Two side Southend United, The Royal Gazette understands. Lambe, who had been on trial at non-league Newport County, is keen to remain in the Football League and is due to play for Southend in a pre-season friendly tomorrow. The 20-year-old’s decison serves as a blow to County boss Hudson who was keen to sign Lambe after he impressed in a recent friendly against Merthyr Town. Paul Scope, who made Newport aware of Lambe’s availability, said: “I’ve spoken to Anthony and I know he liked Reggie and is disappointed he’s looking elsewhere.” Southend are a former club of Shaun Goater who helped the Seasiders to promotion to the Championship in 2006. Lambe has been looking for a new club since being released by Ipswich Town at the end of last season. He made four Carling Cup starts and two Championship substitute appearances during his time at Portman Road. He also made seven substitute appearances on loan at Rovers at the end of last term. The Bermuda international returned to Rovers for a trial earlier this month but failed to impress manager Paul Buckle.
