Blues striker picks up monthly award...Simon Cox has won a second successive DeVines January Player of the Month award, as chosen by Southend United supporters on its official Twitter account @SUFCRootsHall.
Cox narrowly beat off Ted Smith and Marc-Antoine Fortune in a closely contested vote. The striker won 37% of the vote, followed by Smith on 29% and Fortune on 27%.
It was a momentous month for Cox as he brought up a ton of career goals with a wonderfully taken 90th minute strike against Rochdale which proved to be the winner.
His other goal last month was a fine finish to bring Blues level against Sheffield United.
Congratulations Simon on winning back-to-back Player of the Month awards.
