Geraint Delighted With Duo

Geraint Delighted With Duo

Colchester United manager Geraint Williams has spoke of his delight after securing the services of Steven Gillespie and David Perkins.

Gillespie joins from Cheltenham Town for a club record fee in excess of £400,000, while Perkins arrives from Rochdale for an undisclosed fee.

Williams told CU-FC.com: 'After a weekend of discussions between all the relevant parties, I was delighted that we were able to secure the signings of David and Steven on Monday afternoon.


Williams On Perkins

'We watched David a few times in a successful season at Rochdale.

'As well as having bundles of energy, he is a very good footballer. He can also play a number of positions across the whole of the midfield.'


Williams On Gillespie

'Steven scored a hell of a lot of goals as a youngster and was unlucky that the manager who signed him at Bristol City left shortly after Steven went there.

'After a bit of a struggle at Bristol, he really found his feet at Cheltenham and proved that by scoring sixteen goals for them last season.'

Seeing Gillespe play last year against Latics, there was just something about him that caught my eye, could be a very useful signing.
