Full back Josh Doherty was the third signing for Colchester United on deadline day of the January transfer window.
Signing on loan for the U's following the departure of Cohen Bramall to Lincoln City, Doherty joined up with the squad on a loan that runs to the end of the 2020/21 season.
Starting his playing career at Watford, he made one appearance for the Hornets, before being released in 2016 and moving across London to Leyton Orient. But without an appearance at Brisbane Road, he was on the move again, backo his native Northern Ireland to sign for Ards, making eight appearances in 2017.
Picked up by Crawley in September 2017, Doherty actually made his Crawley Town debut at Colchester United, in a 3-1 defeat for the Red Devils at the JobServe Community Stadium. With ninety-four appearances to his name at Crawley, including seventy-nine in League Two, Josh will bring experience to the squad.
