Young Duo Added to Squad

Young Duo Added to Squad

Colchester United boss Geraint Williams has added James Hammond and Fabian Quintyn to the U's squad, ahead of Sunday's game against Scunthorpe.

Young duo Hammond and Quintyn were recently offered professional deals with the U's after impressing for the reserves this season.

Williams told CU-FC.com: 'We have had a couple of players drop out of the original squad after Saturday's training.

'I didn't think it was fair on the four lads that we are releasing to take them on this trip and then tell them we won't be offering them contracts.

'Instead, it is an opportunity for these two young men to see what professionalism goes into preparing for a first team game.

'They will be able to get involved with the work on the pitch before the game and it is both a well done to them for their efforts this season and to show them what's in store in the future.'

Hammond and Quintyn will take the number 25 and 26 shirts respectively.
