Craig Fagan has applied for the Southend United managerial post.

Fagan is currently the U23s boss at the Shrimpers, whose first team were relegated to League Two when the season was curtailed.

It is understood that a number of players are supportive of Fagan’s bid to become the new manager, succeeding Sol Campbell who left the job by mutual consent on June 30.

Former Tottenham, Arsenal and England defender Campbell had only been in the post for eight months, but he said he was “not keen to be a financial burden on the club”.

Southend have endured financial hardship in recent years, even before the impact of the coronavirus pandemic.

Campbell’s staff of Hermann Hreiðarsson, Andy Cole and Tony Colbert also left the Essex-based side last month.

Fagan, 37, played in the Premier League with Derby County, having been part of their promotion-winning team in 2007.

He was a vastly experienced EFL player, with over 150 games under his belt for Hull City, as well as spells at Colchester, Bradford City, Bury and Gillingham.

His U23 side have been top of the Central League this term.
