Nathan Ferguson: ‘I would summarise my time as a Shrimper as challenging’

Former Southend United midfielder Nathan Ferguson admits his time at Roots Hall was ‘challenging.’ 

The 28-year-old joined the Shrimpers during their fight for survival in Sky Bet League Two before he departed in February of last year.

Ferguson gives his take on his time in South East Essex but he is not suprised about how well they are doing today.

“The way I would summarise my time as a Shrimper would be challenging,” he said.

“Due to joining the club after a transfer ban and relegation during the COVID-19 pandemic which made things especially difficult.

“It’s no surprise to see them doing well as the current manager (Kevin Maher) knows how to set up an organised structure which helped to stabilise results on the pitch.”

One of his most memorable moments in a Southend shirt was his 40-yard screamer that he scored in a 3-1 victory over Forest Green Rovers.

Ferguson views it as the best goal he has scored in his career to date.

“The goal at Forest Green was the most extraordinary goal I’ve scored for sure,” the ex-Billericay Town and Grays Athletic midfielder stated.

“It’s up there with one of my favourites, it’s just a shame there were no fans in the stadium at the time.”

Today, Ferguson is plying his trade for Vanarama National League side Wealdstone after arriving at Grosvenor Vale in February 2022.

The Stones currently sit in 14th place and he hopes they can be in play-off contention come the end of the season.

“I think we have started the season a bit slow,” he said.

“We have struggled to find consistency but we have slowly started to get more results.

“Hopefully this season we will be able to get in the play-off places as we just missed out on them last year.”

Ferguson also adds the influence that manager Stuart Munyard has had on him since his arrival.

“The gaffer has been good for me, he has a strong philosophy of playing attractive football which has definitely benefited me.”

Wealdstone host Billericay on Saturday in the Third Round of the Isuzu FA Trophy.

Ferguson expects a tough test from Gary McCann’s side.

“I expect the Billericay game to be a competitive game as both teams will want to progress in the FA Trophy.”
