Southend United have signed prolific forward Brandon Goodship from National League South side Weymouth.

The 24-year-old, who scored 77 goals in two seasons with the Dorset club, joins United on a two-year-deal with the option of a further 12 months.

Goodship is Kevin Bond's first new signing since becoming Southend's permanent manager on 17 May.

"Ever since I heard of Southend's interest I was obviously really keen." he told the club website.

"The last two seasons have been really good for me. Going into every game I felt like I would score if I had the chance."
