Ben Garner was appointed Colchester United First Team Head Coach on 2nd March 2023.
Garner came in to replace Matt Bloomfield who departed the U's for Wycombe Wanderers in late February.
Bringing plenty of experience to North Essex, Garner has coached at Crystal Palace and West Brom, while also holding the Head Coach positions at Bristol Rovers, Swindon Town and Charlton Athletic.
Garner helped to guide the U's to safety at the end of the 2022/23 season with emphatic home wins over Crewe and Sutton at the JobServe Community Stadium.
The U's boss' expansive brand of passing football has been easy on the eye since his arrival, and he has quickly become a favourite of the supporters.
