Southend United fans already taking to new signing Sam Barratt

Following the news late last night that Sam Barratt had signed for Southend United, the youngster has already made a mark on the Shrimpers fans on social media.

Barratt, 22 has joined the EFL League One side after three seasons with Maidenhead United where he picked up a National League South winners medal and was a big part of this seasons successful National League campaign.

Responding to a post on twitter by Southend fan – Give us your all and we’ll give you all the backing you need. Up the Shrimpers! on the social media platform, Barratt said: “Will give nothing but my all.”

A Southend fan site posted something to a similar effect.

And plenty of them have been watching his highlight reel.

Barratt joins the Shrimpers following the departure of Jermaine McGlashan, another former Bracknell winger. Southend finished 10th in League One last season and current boss Chris Powell was appointed in January 2018, succeeding Phil Brown.
