Prosser Wants Positive Play-Off Finale

Skipper preparing for Exeter clashes

8 June 2020

Luke Prosser can't wait to return to match action.

The Colchester United captain has been back training with the squad for the past week, as the U's prepare for the potential Play-Off Semi-Finals against Exeter City.

He is eager for the games to come around, but knows there is a lot of training to be done before the two legged semi.

After training at Florence Park on Monday morning, he told the official website: "As weird as it was with the social distancing, it was great to be back last week."

"The Gaffer, Bally and Perry did a great job mixing the groups up as the week went on, but it was still strange to only be allowed to train in small groups of four or five.

"Having spent so much time in close proximity throughout the season normally, it was funny just to wave through windows as one group was leaving and the other just arriving.

Full contact training will be next on the U's agenda, and despite the final go-ahead still to be agreed, Prosser explained that the squad are fully concentrated on the meetings with Exeter.

"We always hoped that we'd get the chance to finish the job somehow this season, and since it was suggested it could be straight to the Play-Offs, the lads have been fully focussed."

"The whole squad has come back in great shape. I trained pretty much every day in lockdown to make sure I was ready if we did get back and it looks like the rest of the lads did as well."

"I came here four years ago with a few promotions under my belt already, and the plan was to get another one as soon as possible here with Colchester United.

"We went close a couple of times, but I was confident that we'd get into the Play-Offs even with the nine games left this time round.

"We've had a great season in the cups but we all want to end on a high now we've got this opportunity.

"Leading the lads out in the Semi-Finals will be a great feeling, but getting through and leading them out at Wembley would be even better."
