Time To Kick On

2 June 2015

Richard ready for regular football.

Colchester United's first summer signing is ready to kick on and play regular first team football after his switch to the Weston Homes Community Stadium.

Richard Brindley played eight times on loan for the U's at the tail end of the 2014/15 season and has now committed to a two year contract after leaving Rotherham at the end of the previous campaign.

And, with his future secured, he is now ready to realise his potential.

He said: "I'm looking forward to next season and being a part of this club. I enjoyed my loan spell and hope to have the same sorts of results over the next couple of years.

"At the end of last season, it was a tough battle for the team, but a good experience for me, but now I start afresh and hopefully push on."

The team were a tight knit group towards the end of last season, winning five and drawing three of their last ten games.

That experience will no doubt be of benefit to the team as they prepare for a fresh assault on League One in 2015/16.

Richard added: "The lads are a really good bunch, and the staff and management have helped me massively. Being a part of this team is something I'm looking forward to.

"I am ready for regular first team football, it didn't quite work out for me at Rotherham, but I am grateful to have the chance to develop and reach my potential."
