Robbie adds two faces to club's list of directors.
"I am pleased to announce that Tony Humes and Tony Ashby have both joined the Colchester United Board as Directors.
Colchester United chairman Robbie Cowling has added two new faces to the club's board.
In a statement on Friday afternoon, he said:-
"Tony Humes and Tony Ashby already work full-time in their roles as Director of Football and Director of Football Operations respectively, but they have demonstrated to me that they care about Colchester United way beyond what can normally be expected from employees.
"Therefore I am delighted that they have both accepted my offer to join the Board.
"It is important for me to have fellow directors who share the club's visions and its values and, having worked with them both for a number of years, I know that is the case.
"The next few years are going to be very important for Colchester United.
"We're starting to see the benefits of the club's policy to develop and promote our Academy players, but it's a long term policy and we still have a lot of work to do.
"As always I look forward to the challenges and I know I can rely on the support that my fellow directors have always provided me with."
