The 27-year-old joins the Shrimpers as a free agent after being released by Aldershot at the end of last season.

Reid, who started his career with Coventry, has also enjoyed spells with Cheltenham and Newport.

"I'm pleased to have signed a deal with Southend United and I can't wait to get started," he told the club's official website.

"Last season was tough with everything that went on at Aldershot but I'm very happy to be back in the Football League with Southend and hopefully we can have a successful season.

"Hopefully I can score goals and show the fans what I can really do. I can't wait for the season to get started against Plymouth on Saturday."

ah, Fergie is just having another pop at Rooney. He just wants to put him down whenever he gets a chance. Rooney is by far the best English player. Carrick is not far behind, mind. However, by elevating Carrick like that, Sir is having a dig at Wayne. Fergie is well-known for mind games like that. Good to see he's still feisty.
