Precocious forward Norman Wabo made three appearances for Southend United’s first-team during the 2017/18 season.
That same season saw him net 12 times in 12 games for the club’s U23s team, including both goals in the Central League Cup Southern Section Final victory against Milton Keynes Dons at Stadium MK.
Wabo, who joined Blues as a 14-year-old after featuring for Sunday club Westward Boys alongside ex-Shrimpers scholar Abdul Salami, has regularly found the back of the net for the club across all age groups, completing his two-year scholarship with 30 goals in 68 games in 2016.
The former Essex Schoolboys talent, who can be as frustrating as he is talented with his single-minded skillset, continued that form into the club’s U23s side and has spent time on loan in the National League with Ebbsfleet United, Maidstone United and Dover Athletic as he seeks to force his way back into the first-team picture at Roots Hall.
