SOUTHEND man­ager Phil Brown has given pro­fes­sional deals to three acad­emy play­ers – ex-Arse­nal winger Mitchell Pin­nock, striker Seedy Njie and right-sided player Ryan Auger.

Southend head of youth Ricky Dun­can – who has also seen three play­ers of­fered de­vel­op­ment deals – said: “Since Phil Brown came in he’s been to a num­ber of our games, and it’s a big boost for all the play­ers to have the first-team man­ager watch­ing them.

“Six lads have been given the op­por­tu­nity to con­tinue their de­vel­op­ment and it’s fan­tas­tic for ev­ery­one in­volved in the youth set-up that they’ve been given this chance.”
