Shrimpers move for Fulham’s Cauley Woodrow

3 Sep

SOUTHEND boss Phil Brown moved one in and one out on the final day of the transfer window, releasing Don Cowan and bringing in Fulham’s starlet Cauley Woodrow on a one-month youth loan, which can be extended.
Woodrow signed for the Cottagers in 2010 for a substantial six-figure sum from Luton Town having been released by Spurs as a boy.
Described as a player in the mould of Teddy Sheringham, the tall striker is yet to make a first-team appearance but is highly rated at Craven Cottage.
Speaking at last night’s q&a with the Shrimpers Trust, Brown said he was impressed by Woodrow whilst watching a development match between Manchester City and Fulham, where he had initially gone to scout Cottagers’ midfielder Ronny Minkwitz.
But Woodrow stood out and, after consultation with chief scout Bob Shaw, Brown decided to invite him along for training before swooping for a loan deal yesterday having moved out Don Cowan.
