Young Colchester United forward Russell Malton has today departed the club on loan.
The U's YTS product heads to local non-league neighbours Heybridge Swifts, in a loan deal which lasts until the start of 2010. With the likes of Clive Platt, Kayode Odejayi, Kevin Lisbie and Steven Gillespie all in front of Malton in the U's pecking order - a loan move looks like his best chance of regular football, for the time being at least.
Speaking to the club's official website, Malton said: 'It's going to be good for me to be involved in first team football for a couple of months and get my fitness levels right up there.'
Malton, who can operate through the middle, along with down either flank, is keen to get some well-needed match experience under his belt.
'Hopefully I will get plenty of games under my belt during the time that I am at Heybridge,' he concluded.
Vital Colchester would like to wish Russell the best of luck in his time with the Swifts.
VITAL COLCHESTER IS BACK!
