SHRIMPERS KEEP COKER

The Football League Paper - - INSIDE -

PHIL BROWN be­lieves Ben Coker’s new two-year con­tract is noth­ing more than the Southend left-back de­serves.

The 24-year-old has been a vir­tual ever-present for the Shrimpers this sea­son and boss Brown has been im­pressed by how Coker has han­dled him­self.

“Ben came in on trial and earned a con­tract in the sum­mer, then pro­duced all sea­son to earn him­self a new deal,” said Brown.

“That is tes­ti­mony to the boy him­self and all credit to him as an in­di­vid­ual for earn­ing the new con­tract.”
