And Is It Goodbye From Guy?

And Is It Goodbye From Guy?

Potentially brilliant but perennially frustrating striker Jamie Guy has publically stated after his Prot Vale trail that he needs a "fresh start" away from Colchester.

His United career has been dogged by injuries since he first burst onto the scene as a U`s YTS graduate, breaking the first team during the club`s halcyon days in the Championship.

Guy was Colchester`s most used player from the bench during the 2006-7 season, as he grabbed impressive goals against Coventry City, Cardiff City and West Bromwich Albion.

Since then, injury and indiscipline have hampered Guy`s progress and he had been set to depart on loan to Vale when bad luck befell him again and he sustained a knee problem.

"I need a fresh start" said Guy, in yesterday`s Colchester Gazette. He is angling for a move to Mickey Adams` Vale, although previously expressed a desired to join Dagenham & Redbridge, the club he watched a boy.

"I think it`s time to move on and start a new challenge. I hope I can go back to Port Vale and do well and maybe get something permanent. I played a couple of games for Vale and scored a couple of goals. I was feeling pretty sharp and fit."

Very much a case of goodbye and good luck, then, from one of Colchester`s own.
