Sturrock still searching to strengthen Shrimpers squad

Sturrock: New Shrimpers boss

Sturrock: 'We're still working hard to bring people in and hope happens soon'

We've heard quite a lot but nobodys signed on the dotted line yet.

However, Blues boss Paul Sturrock has been very close to grabbing somebody's signature, and still hopes it will be more than one, as he looks to recreate the squad he had at the Pilgrims when he took them to the fourth tier title nearly a whole decade ago. 

Sturrock told "When I was at Plymouth I had one team for home games and another for when we played away, and if we get the players I want to bring in to Southend then we could be doing the same here. We are still working hard to bring people in and hope it can happen soon."

The player the Shrimpers boss told us could be in place for the trip to South Yorkshire had asked for time to consider the move, the picky sod!
