Trialist impresses Shrimpers

29 January 2009 04:05
Southend are trialling Ipswich Town youth product Ed Upson, who scored twice in a friendly with Canvey Island. The Shrimpers are running the rule over eight players in total as manager Steve Tilson looks to bolster his squad. Upson is out of contract with the Tractor Boys at the end of the season and is set for the exit at Portman Road, with Roots Hall seemingly a likely destination. Upson, who has received a call-up to the England Under-19 squad, netted the winning goal of the 2005 FA Youth Cup final.
