Forward thrilled with new deal...
Nile Ranger says he is delighted to have agreed a deal to keep him at Blues till 2020.
The former Newcastle striker has made a brilliant start to life at Roots Hall, scoring two goals whilst also having his own unbeaten record when he is in the starting eleven.
Ranger said he is loving every minute at the club and is now ready to help the team kick on to continue the push up the league.
“Tying myself down to three and a half years at Southend is a big thing because I was in a dark place before.
“Now I feel like I’ve revived my career thanks to the gaffer, the Chairman, Ron, and the players. The fans have backed me as well so I’m really thankful to them.
“I’m pleased to have this opportunity and I’m going to continue to give my all.
“I’ve got a lot of strong people around me who told me not to give up on my dream and it’s all I know so I couldn’t stop.
“We’ve been doing very well lately. We’re on a great run and we don’t want that to stop so we have to keep it going.
“I’m a Shrimper and now the focus is on the games coming up.”
