U's Flash: Mandeville Confirmed

Front man joins on loan

31 January 2018

Colchester United are pleased to welcome striker Liam Mandeville on loan from Doncaster Rovers.

20-year-old Liam joins the U's until the end of the season from the League One club, ahead of this weekend's home game against Newport County.

He joined Rovers as a 16-year-old and broke through to Darren Ferguson's first team in April 2015.

He hit the headlines just over a year later as he picked up the EFL Young Player of the Month award in November 2016, as his five goals in six games got Rovers off to a great start in their quest for promotion back to League One.

That soon became seven in nine games and he ended the 2016/17 campaign with 10 in 27 as Rovers finished in third place in the table.

He has remained in the first team picture in 2017/18, playing 24 times and notching four in his last eleven appearances.

He arrives with 64 first team games under his belt and will now look to contribute to the U's promotion push.
