Guy Wants Fresh Start

Colchester United's troubled striker Jamie Guy wants to quit the U's.

Guy, 20, was banned from driving for 12 months and fined 400 and 75 costs following charges of drink-driving and driving without insurance or a licence. The ex-Cambridge loanee was also fined 350 with 75 costs after admitting threatening behaviour, relating to a play-fight' in a Colchester car park.

I'm upset about what's happened, and it won't be happening again,' he said, outside Colchester Magistrates Court on Thursday.

The front-man also revealed his plans to make a fresh start elsewhere: 'I haven't really spoken to the club about it. I do not see myself at the club after this and I am looking to get away for a fresh start.'

U's boss Geraint Williams, who recently stated his desire to keep Guy, said: 'The club do not condone Jamie's behaviour but has been sympathetic to his position and we will speak to him with a view to the best outcome for both Jamie and for the club.'

The Barking-born forward failed to start a U's game last season, only making a dozen appearances from the bench. Guy, who stands at 6ft 1 in, rejected a loan move to Crewe Alexandra in the second-half of last season.

Guy's willingness to leave North Essex could well prompt interest from Crewe, while Leyton Oreint could also pounce.

It does look like after his off field problems he needs to start again.

Cash in on him now before he goes over the edge and is unavailable due to serving a prison sentence or something silly. Although if he was lucky i'm sure someone can make shin-pads that will fit round an electronic tagging system ( But he couldn't play in cup ties in case of extra time going over his tag curfew!)

yeah well, still think he could do a job for us, but if he wants a fresh start then he should go
