Southend United sign former Colchester United defender Ben Coker on a free transfer.

Southend United boss Phil Brown has revealed that the club have completed the signing of Ben Coker following a successful trial.

The 24-year-old, who is primarily a left-back, had been without a team since leaving Colchester United in February.

Brown told the club's official website: "He's done really well since he's come in on trial and really put a marker down.

"He has worked extremely hard and I think him and Anthony Straker are starting to form quite a nice partnership on the left-hand side.

"Having Ben sign gives us options as Straker can drop back if needed or Chris Barker can move to left-back. I'm delighted to have signed Ben and I'm sure he'll do very well."

Brown has featured in all of Southend's pre-season fixtures to date.
