Popular keeper returns on loan.
Colchester United are delighted to confirm that goalkeeper Sam Walker has returned to the club, following his successful loan spell in 2012/13.
Sam was a crucial part of the U's survival bid last season, with his penalty save against Leyton Orient a definitive moment in the U's successful efforts to stay in League One.
And, ahead of the U's sell-out clash against Tottenham Hotspur on Friday night, Sam has penned a loan deal that will initially keep him at the club until January 19th 2014.
Boss Joe Dunne said: "Sam did extremely well for us when he was here last time around and he was someone we wanted back for the new season.
"We have great competition for places now in goal - they will push each other and bring the best out of each other."
Sam has permission to play in the friendly against Spurs on Friday.
