A 2015 summer signing after his departure from Ipswich Town, Anthony Wordsworth arrived on a free transfer, signing a two-year deal with the Blues.

A graduate of the Colchester United youth system, Wordsworth went on to appear over 150 times for the U’s, before moving on to Ipswich for an undisclosed fee.

In and out of the side at Portman Road, Anthony took in loan stints with both Rotherham United and Crawley Town before joining Southend in July 2015.

Injury hampered much of Wordsworth’s first season at Roots Hall, but crucial strikes against Burton Albion and neighbours Colchester endeared him to the Blues faithful.
