Defender signs new two-year deal with Southend United
Southend United are pleased to announce that defender Luke Prosser has agreed a new two-year deal with the Club with an option of a further year.
The 25-year-old joined Blues in 2010 having spent four years at Port Vale, which included loan spells at Leigh RMI, Salisbury City and Kidderminster Harriers.
Luke made 13 appearances for Blues in 2010 before joining Conference side Rushden & Diamonds on loan.
He returned in February 2011 to Roots Hall and made eight appearances, scoring his first goal against former club, Port Vale.
Luke made 27 appearances in all competitions during the 2011/12 season, scoring one goal against Accrington Stanley in a 2-2 draw in March.
The defender enjoyed his most successful season at Blues last season, making 36 appearances.
He missed just one game of the Club’s excellent run in the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy – the first leg against Leyton Orient – and started the final against Crewe at Wembley.
Speaking of Luke’s contract renewal, Phil Brown said: “We’re very happy that Luke has decided to stay with us and sign a new deal.
“He’s a player who I like a lot because he can play at left back or the left side of defence, so he gives me defensive options.
“He works hard and showed a very good attitude towards the end of the last campaign, he’ll have a big part to play this season.”
An interview with Luke Prosser will be available later today.
