Rob Newman

Born: 13th December 1963

Birthplace: Bradford Upon Avon

Height: 6ft 2ins

Weight:13.4 stone

Rob joined the club in the summer having been released by Norwich City somewhat surprisingly. The Canaries loss proved to be Southend's gain, as Rob has turned in some outstanding performances this season and looks set to win the player of the year award. He is also a prolific goalscorer from defence, and contributes a substantial percentage of the Blue's goals. Rob is 35 years old and he has played in the UEFA Cup and the Premier League with Norwich and has lost none of his enthusiasm for the game. Noted for his unerringly accurate crossfield passes and his strength.
