Timlin joined Southend on a permanent basis in August 2011 having previously had two loan spells at the club.
A cultured left footed midfielder, Timlin jumped at the chance to work with former Blues boss Paul Sturrock again having previously played under him at Swindon Town.
The midfielder started his career at Fulham and spent time on loan with Scunthorpe and Doncaster before joining Swindon.
Timlin is a battling midfielder who has the technical ability to create and score eye-catching goals – his thunderous strike at Barnsley in March 2016 an example!
He has since made his 200th appearance for the club.
