Young Fulham striker has signed a one-month loan deal with Southend United
Southend United are pleased to confirm that Fulham striker Cauley Woodrow has joined on an initial one-month loan deal, subject to approval from the Football League.
The 18-year-old trained with Blues for the first time today and Phil Brown has opted to bring Cauley in for an initial month.
The striker began his career with Luton Town, where he became the first non-league player since 1974 to win a full England age-group cap.
He joined Fulham and is contracted to the Craven Cottage club until 2016.
The England youth international was a key player for Fulham’s under-18’s as they were crowned national champions twice in two years.
Phil Brown said: “We’re pleased to have Cauley here. He’s someone I’ve seen play and is maybe what we’re missing in terms of striking options.
“He applied himself really well during training today and I’m sure he’ll do well during his time with Southend United. He’s with us for a month to begin with before we assess the situation.”
Cauley said: “I’m delighted to be here and looking forward to getting some first-team football under my belt.
“I really enjoyed my first day with the players, they’ve all been great. I’m now just looking ahead to this weekend’s game against Morecambe.”
Cauley will wear the number 33 shirt while he is with the club.
Cauley's first interview after signing for Blues will be available on Blues Player shortly.
