Players Have No Idea Who 'Mystery' Man Is!
Matt Lockwood last night said he "hasn`t a clue" who Colchester`s new manager will be, but if it is press favourite Aidy Boothroyd, then apparently the players will be last to find out.
The left-back, who played last night in the side`s loss on penalties to Gillingham having been sensationally frozen-out under the club`s previous boss, explained: "Really , it`s nothing to do with us."
The Chairman and the Chief Exec [Steve Bradshaw] are the ones that obviously run the club, they`re the ones who are interviewing the manager and they`re going to pick the guy who is best for job to take Colchester United forward. He`s going to get a manager who has been there and done it and I`m just really looking forward to meeting him," Lockwood added on BBC Radio Essex.
He joins fellow defender, Alan Maybury, the second Colchester player insdie a week to say they have only inklings of what will happen next.
Without knowing it however, presumably, Lockwood`s closing statement echoes an excitement building for Colchester fans ahead of an impending announcement, which will be confirmed before the next league game away at Southampton.
