Grays forward James Lawson has joined Ryman Premier Division side Chelmsford City on a month's loan.
The 20-year-old has made nine league appearances for Grays, but is still awaiting his first goal for them.
Lawson made 31 league and cup appearances for Southend before he was released during the summer, and subsequently moved to Grays.
Last season, the Shrimpers loaned him out on three occasions - to Grimsby, Bournemouth and Dagenham & Redbridge.
He was transfer-listed by Grays earlier this month.
