SHRIMPERS KEEP COKER
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.”
