Harry Cardwell signed for Southend United in January 2022 for an undisclosed fee from Chorley.

The 25-year-old striker has penned a two-and-a-half-year deal.

A former Scotland U21 international, Cardwell began his career in the youth system at his hometown club, Hull City, before joining Reading’s Academy at the age of 16.

In 2017, after five years with the Royals, Cardwell moved back up north to join Grimsby Town on a permanent deal and went on to make 53 appearances in the Football League for the Mariners before signing for Chorley in 2020.

The 6ft 3 striker was instrumental in the Magpies’ historic FA Cup run last season, also scoring the equaliser in the 3-2 comeback win away at Wigan Athletic.

Cardwell then spent the second half of last season on loan at Stockport County following the curtailment of the National League North, featuring 19 times and grabbing six goals as the Hatters fell short in the National League play-offs.
