14 May 2021

Colchester United have released a number of players that are out of contract this summer.

New Head Coach Hayden Mullins said of the first step towards putting together the U's squad for 21/22: "There’s not many we’re retaining for next season and there is an exciting opportunity for some new players to come in. There’s going to be a fair bit of movement this year."
