Southend United have called James Lawson back from a loan spell at Grimsby Town.

The teenage striker was less than a fortnight into a one-month stint at Blundell Park, but his stay has been cut short.

He made just one substitute appearance for The Mariners and Southend boss Steve Tilson explained the reason for recalling the 19-year-old.

"James was there for two matches and only played about 20 minutes," said Tilson.

"We wanted him to get games and that wasn't happening, so he has come back to us now."

Prior to joining Grimsby, Lawson had made three appearances for Southend this season and will now look to force his way back into Tilson's plans.
