Dion Departs

Sembie-Ferris leaves by mutual consent

15 August 2017

Dion Sembie-Ferris seeks first team football elsewhere after leaving Colchester United.

The young winger and the U's agreed to terminate his contract, allowing him to find another club ahead of the transfer window closing at the end of August.

Having come into the club as a seventeen-year-old from St Neots, the pacy wide man burst onto the scene as an impact sub, including making his debut in the FA Cup at Cardiff City.

First team appearances have been hard to come by for the now twenty-one-year-old, with his last start coming last October in the Checkatrade Trophy.

According to U's Director of Football Tony Humes, it was a logical decision for both parties.

He told "We couldn't guarantee that Dion would be involved as much as he would have liked and he is getting to the stage when he needs to be playing first team football regularly.

"We have a duty of care to players like Dion, and the likes of Macauley Bonne and Alex Wynter, and it was only fair to let Dion try and further his career elsewhere.

"His attitude was great in his time here and all of us here at Colchester United wish him the best of luck wherever his career takes him."
