U's Flash: Will Signs

24 November 2014

Central defender signs from Birmingham City.

Colchester United have boosted their defensive ranks with the signing of Will Packwood from Birmingham City.

Following the news that club captain Magnus Okuonghae is set for an extended spell on the sidelines after rupturing his Achilles in the game against Coventry at the weekend, the U's have wasted no time in finding a replacement.

21-year-old American Will, a product of the Birmingham academy, has initially signed on loan until January 1st and will be available for the U's weekend trip to MK Dons.

Having made his Blues first team debut in August 2012, he has gone on to play 21 times for City and also enjoyed a loan spell with Bristol Rovers this time last year, playing eight times.
