Defender has contract cancelled.
Ben had found his first team opportunities limited under boss Joe Dunne and his contract was cancelled by mutual consent on Friday afternoon.
He had come to the U's after impressing on trial from non-league Bury Town, and impressed in his first full season in the Football League.
Playing predominantly at left back but also on the left wing, Ben went on to make 45 appearances in U's colours.
We wish him all the best with his future football career and thank him for his efforts whilst at Colchester United.
