Norman Wabo rewarded pro deal
Norman Wabo has signed his first professional contract with Southend United after impressing for Kevin Maher’s under 21 side, signing a one year deal with an option for another year.
The striker was delighted to sign his deal with Blues.
“I’m very happy to sign my first professional contract, I just want to thank god for everything, I’m grateful for opportunity given to me and I can’t wait to push on now.”
Wabo spent the end of the 2016/17 on loan at Cambridge City in The Evo-Stik Southern Premier League scoring four goals in five appearances.
“The loan move was great for me, I matured as a player and going to Cambridge was a key moment for me in my career, it certainly helped me in my development.”
The youngster was also prolific for Blues’ under 21 side and he will be waiting for his chance in the first team.
“I’d like to think I’m an all-round striker, I’m good on my feet and very fast on the ball. I love to take on my man, I’m very direct in my play.
“I’d like to score for the first team when I get my chance, I am confident in my ability to score goals and show the fans what I’m about.”
