Southend United manager Phil Brown with a message for supporters...
There appears to have been a slight misunderstanding between myself and the Southend Echo in regards to my column in the paper today (Thursday).
I was quoted as saying that a transfer embargo surrounding the club has made it difficult to bring in faces for more competition throughout the squad.
I’d like to make it clear that the Chairman and board have been extremely supportive of myself, and that there is no transfer embargo in place.
In January, we were able to bring Bedsente Gomis, Luke O’Neill and Lee Barnard to the football club, who I am sure will all play a big part in helping us achieve what we want to this season – and that’s promotion.
We find ourselves in a very good position heading into the remaining games of the season. It’s going to be a big push, but every single player is working as hard as they possibly can to help us get into League 1.
I’d like to thank Southend fans for their continued support, and look forward to seeing as many of you as possible at Mansfield Town on Saturday as we look to pick up an important three points.
