Core Sports are delighted to announce the signing of highly-rated striker Charlie Kelman from Southend.

The 17-year-old starlet has agreed to join Core Sports

Charlie Kelman is one of the latest beneficiaries of Southend’s culture of bringing through youth players. Kelman scored an impressive 61 goals last season and has since made a breakthrough into the first team this year, notably scoring on his debut with an incredible strike from the halfway line in the final moments of the game. He is also a United States youth International.

Director Alex O’Leary commented: “Charlie is a player who we have admired for some time, and we are delighted to have been able to bring him here, especially given the competition we faced to sign him.

“Charlie is a goal threat to any team and his record of scoring makes him an extremely exciting addition. He is a sensible young man, intelligent, and a strong team player, Clearly having another really good character in our group is part of what we want here at Core Sports’.

“He has shown tremendous drive to improve and has also displayed a great desire to be a part of what we are trying to achieve here, and I believe he will be a real asset to the agency in the years ahead.”

“He is a fine forward player, one capable of producing quality at any given moment. We’ve followed his progress at Southend from an early age and have been really impressed by how he has developed’

Everyone at Core Sports would like to wish Charlie the best of luck as he begins the next stage of his career with us.
