U's Flash: Two More Go

1 February 2013

Henderson and Rose depart.

There were two further movements before the transfer window closed on Thursday night, with a pair of players leaving Colchester United.

Michael Rose and Ian Henderson both had their contracts cancelled by mutual consent ahead of the 11pm deadline, which means that they can now sign for any club between now and the end of the season.

Ian was the first of the two players to arrive at the club, having been signed by Aidy Boothroyd during his time at Colchester United.

The 28 year old returned from a short stint in Turkey, and joined up with the manager who had been his youth team boss at Norwich.

He went on to play 130 times in U's colours, scoring 26 goals from predominantly wide positions.

Michael arrived eighteen months later, on a free transfer from Swindon Town.

Signed by John Ward, Michael started the season at left back, before battling for that position with Ben Coker and John White for the rest of the campaign.

After a good pre-season, he regained his place at the start of 2012/13 before again battling for his spot with White and West Ham loanee Dan Potts.

He ended up playing 40 games for the U's, scoring three goals - his last against Chelmsford with a great free kick.

We wish them all the best for their footballing futures.
