Dunne: It`s Got To Be Better!

First-team coach Joe Dunne has warned Colchester's young players to improve on recent poor results.

The U's reserves lost 9-2 to Ipswich Town last week, before crashing out of the Essex Senior Cup to Chelmsford City. Vital Colchester reported this to read the article, click here.

He told the Daily Gazette: 'It`s got to be better - it`s as simple as that.

'If you`re a young player at the club, you`re not here for a easy ride.

'To go to Chelmsford with the side we had, we should have been able to see them off.

'That`s what the manager wants and when you can`t do that, it poses questions and it poses problems, in the harsh reality of this industry. It was a lack of concentration and it`s been that way since I`ve moved back in and around the young players,'
Dunne continued.

'The concentration and discipline during games needs to be better.

'They are learning the harshest way - they lost 9-2 at Ipswich last week and there have been a couple of youth team games where we have just switched off.'
