It’s three signings for Stockport

Solihull Moors have added to their midfield

One out at Aldershot

Reaction here from the Southend boss

“Being a left-footed centre half he can bring that balance that we have lost with Ralphy injured and ruled out for six weeks.

“He’s someone who’s got a great left foot, he’s played at the level albeit for a brief period and he’s got great potential.

“We’re looking forward to him coming into the squad alongside Kenny.

“With the players we’ve lost it meant we wanted to add a couple in that area. We want to keep pushing and finish the season strong by winning as many games as we can.

“I’m pleased we’ve been able to sign two and I’m grateful to the club for allowing us to do that.”

Defender can’t wait to get started

Another one in at Southend

Nothing happening at the Spireites

That’s it for another year

Ladies and gents, I make that 5pm and deadline day is now officially over.

Stay tuned though tomorrow when we will bring you plenty more on deals that have gone through but not been made public just yet.

Here’s what Southend boss Kevin Maher had to say about the deal

“We’re delighted to bring Kenny in. He has got loads of experience at the level and good leadership qualities. We are very young at the back so needed someone with great knowledge. He fits that bill.

“He’s someone suited to playing in a three so that’s a possibility, he’s done that for Dagenham this season so we can look at that. He wouldn’t be adverse to it.

“You know exactly what he can bring to the team, and we can trust him straight away in terms of knowing the job, knowing the level and talking to others around him.”

Southend have added a defender

Southend have agreed a deal with fellow National League side Dagenham & Redbridge to sign the 33-year-old defender on a deal until the end of this season.
