Young goalkeeper Christian Walton had his emergency loan our at Southend United extended once again ahead of this weekend’s action.

With goalkeeping troubles at Roots Hall for Phil Brown, Walton headed out to them with Football League approval last month and the 21 year old made his debut in their three nil victory over Oldham Athletic on Saturday April 1.

Prior to his existing deal expiring, he had made six appearances for the side, and with the extension he was back between the sticks for their victory over Bury last weekend.

That was the final League One fixture of the year and Southend narrowly missed out on the Play Offs so presumably he heads back to us shortly as the extension runs until the weekend.
