Will Atkinson: Southend United sign midfielder from Bradford
Southend United have signed midfielder Will Atkinson on a two-year deal following his release by Bradford City.
The 24-year-old played 57 games last season, including the League Cup final defeat by Swansea and League Two play-off final win over Northampton.
He joined the Bantams from Hull City, where he worked under current Southend boss Phil Brown.
"Will had such a fantastic work rate and desire to succeed," Brown told the club website.
"I'm delighted that he has joined the club. He's another player, just like who fits the bill perfectly and I'm looking forward to working with him again."
