Southend have parted with assistant manager Dave Penney after his contract with the League One club expired.

The 50-year-old former Doncaster and Bristol Rovers manager joined the Shrimpers in 2013, and was part of Phil Brown's backroom staff as they won promotion via the play-offs in 2014-15.

But Wakefield-born Penney has decided to return to West Yorkshire from Essex.

"I would like to take this opportunity of wishing the club and its supporters continued success," said Penney.external-link
