Three trailist Shrimpers as Corr and Sturrock out at Dartford

11 July 2011 07:55
Southend United kick-off their pre-season schedule against the Darts Monday evening; kick-off 19.45, with three players trying to impress Blues boss Paul Sturrock. Not the two we predicted but still three trailists to take the field against Dartford this evening as the Shrimpers start their pre-season schedule against Blue Square South side Dartford, and hope to gain revenge for their 2-0 defeat here last season, just days after Southend manager Paul Sturrock had got enough new players together to field a side! First up is Blue Square Bet South club Welling United dfender and skipper Jack Parkinson. Parky joined the club as a teenager from VCD in July 2008 will take part in both this week's friendlies after signing a new one-year deal with Welling at the end of the last campaign. Welling boss Jamie Day told "They want to have a look at him first before finalising anything. If we can progress players on then it shows we're doing a half-decent job. Obviously it weakens our squad but it gives others the chance to shine and it frees up some money to bring players in that we wanted to previously but were unable to afford." Southend United: Morris, Clohessy, Phillips, Barker, Prosser, Thomson, Parkinson, Sawyer, Currie, Crawford, Thomas
