Defender speaks to Blues after making his 100th appearance for Blues last weekend
Defender Luke Prosser was delighted to keep a clean sheet on his 100th appearance for Southend United against Exeter City on Saturday.
Speaking exclusively to the club’s official matchday programme, Prosser said: “Every season I’ve been here I seem to have played more games and matured as a player. I’m pleased with the number of appearances I’ve made so far this season and to have only missed three games.
“There is real competition for places as we’ve got four central defenders here who are all wanting to start games. You know that poor performances can lead to you being out the side and of course suspension means someone else gets a chance to impress.
“I’m really enjoying myself at Southend United. I think I joined the same day as Mark Phillips and Barry Corr had joined a week or so before us so we’re the three longest serving players here apart from those that have come through the youth system.
“I think it’s fair to say I made a slow start here at Southend United but the loan spell helped me to progress and I came back a stronger player. Each year I’ve improved in my opinion and played a more important role in the side, so I just want to keep progressing.
“Making my 100th appearance at Exeter City last Saturday was great for me personally. I signed a new deal in the summer and I am really happy here at Roots Hall. Hopefully we can have a memorable season.”
