In August 2010, he moved to England to sign with Southend United of League Two,[2] as one of seventeen new signings.[3] This move came despite difficulties in securing his transfer from the Moroccan club,[4] after delays in getting the necessary paperwork from the Moroccan government.[5] He made his debut for the club in the Football League Trophy in their goalless First Round encounter with Gillingham at Roots Hall, he was replaced by Louie Soares at half-time before Southend went on to win 4–3 on penalties.[6] On 26 October 2010 Bouzid suffered a head injury in a reserve team game against Colchester United which required emergency surgery to his skull. On 14 January 2011, Bouzid went on a week-long trial with Scottish club Ross County F.C.[7] However, he did not do enough to impress manager Willie McStay and returned to Southend.[8] In May 2011 he was one of five players told they were to be released by Southend[9]
