Cole Skuse became the first summer signing of 2021 moving to Colchester United after his release from League One Ipswich Town.
The versatile and experience midfielder ended an eight-year association with the Tractor Boys to join Colchester United ahead of the 2021/22 season.
Beginning his career at Bristol City, Skuse made his debut at Layer Road against Colchester United in 2005 with a substitute appearance. Helping the Robins gain promotion to the Championship two seasons later, Skuse played forty-two league games as Bristol City finished runners up to Sunthorpe United.
Remaining a key figure at Ashton Gate for another five six season, Skuse clocked up over 300 appearances for the Robins before moving to Suffolk and Ipswich Town.
Then a Championship side, Skuse helped Ipswich to the play-off semi-finals, and was a fan favourite at Portman Road. He was released by Ipswich after almost 300 games and joined the U's on a two-year deal in May 2021.
