Youngsters Head Out

Strike duo away from JCS for a month

9 December 2021

Jake Hutchinson and Tom Stagg will spend the next month away from Colchester United.

The strike duo are heading out to Hitchin Town and East Thurrock United respectively, and will be looking for minutes as they continue their football development.

Jake is heading out to Hitchin on a month's loan, and is expected to be in their squad for the weekend trip to Stourbridge in the Southern League Premier Division Central.

Tom, who heads out on work experience, will also be expecting some weekend action with East Thurrock playing at Horsham in the Isthmian Premier League.

Director of Football Tony Humes said of the temporary moves: "Both Jake and Tom are both at the stage in their football education and development where they need the challenge that will stretch them more than they can get in the Academy teams."

"That challenge is trying to play regular competitive men's football and coming back better equipped to put themselves in the eyeline of Hayden and Alex for first team involvement.

"The ideal scenario is that they both have strong months for their teams and come back having bought some points to those teams and some good match action for themselves."
