Midfielder extends his stay with the Blues for another two years.
Southend United are delighted to announce that midfielder Will Atkinson has signed a new two-year-deal with the Blues.
Will made 41 appearances for the Club in all competitions last season, and has appeared on 93 occasions in total since arriving in the summer of 2013 after departing Bradford City.
And the 26-year-old was thrilled to put pen to paper to remain with the Blues for the forthcoming season.
“It was an easy decision to stay,” the versatile midfielder said.
“I was pleased with last season from a personal point of view and with the team winning promotion, it turned out to be a great campaign for us all.
“I've played a lot of football for Southend since I joined the Club and I really can't wait to play in League 1 next season.
“The last two years have been pretty successful I think with the play-offs in my first year and then the win at Wembley last season, and I want to be part of some more good times with the Club for the next two seasons.”
