Date of birth
A 2015 summer signing after his departure from Ipswich Town, Anthony Wordsworth arrived on a free, signing a two-year deal with the Blues with the option of another.
A graduate of the Colchester United youth system, Wordsworth went on to appear over 150 times for the U’s, before moving on to Ipswich for an undisclosed fee.
In and out of the side at Portman Road, Anthony took in loan stints with both Rotherham United and Crawley Town before joining Southend in July 2015.
Injury hampered much of Wordsworth’s first season at Roots Hall, but crucial strikes against Burton Albion and neighbours Colchester endeared him to the Blues faithful.
The following season, Wordsworth showed his attacking prowess by notching 12 goals from midfield.
