Attacking midfielder extends stay with Blues

Southend United are pleased to announce Jack Bridge has signed a two year contract extension with the Club.
 
Bridge has been at the Club since the age of nine making his way through the Academy and the attacking midfielder was delighted to extend his stay with the Blues.
 
“I’ve been here for such a long time and I really want to be here so I’m delighted to sign a new contract.”
 
Jack spent some time on loan at Chelmsford City impressing for the Clarets, scoring seven goals in 14 appearances including six ‘Man of the Match’ accolades.
 
After receiving rave reviews in the Vanarama National League South the midfielder is looking to cement a place in the Blues squad next season.
 
“After making my debut at Roots Hall last weekend and starting for the first time yesterday it’s given me the taste of what I want and I can’t wait to kick on next year.”
 
Manager Phil Brown was also pleased to tie Jack down for another two years.
 
“I’m absolutely delighted; it shows the level of the Academy set up we have here and special praise goes to Ricky Duncan because since I’ve been at the Club there has always been an Academy product in my squad.”
 
“We reward people who want to be here and they also need to have the ability to play at this level, Jack has shown he is capable of stepping up, especially in our last two games.”
