Batlokwa signs pro deal

Renei Batlokwa has signed his first professional contract with Southend United, signing a one year deal with an option for another year.

The midfielder was delighted to sign his deal with Blues.

"I feel very pleased to have got it done, I just want to kick on now and repay the club's faith in me."

The 19 year old impressed during the 16/17 pre-season and Manager Phil Brown has already said he expects Batlokwa to push his way into the first team.

"Last pre-season was a great opportunity to show the Gaffer what I could do and my aim is to replicate that this season but more consistently to earn a place in the squad."

Renei was recently called up to the Botswana national but decided to focus on pre-season with Blues.

"The call up was a great sign that there's is recognition of what I did. Unfortunately it didn't turn out the way I wanted it to.

However, it has encouraged me to fight this season to get into the first team at Southend United."
