Late O`Toole Goal Wins U`s 27,000. Now Sign Him!


They said 400,000 might be a bit too much for loanee John-Joe O`Toole. And he scored a potentially contract-winning goal at Hereford.

Alright, yes; it somewhat kills the magic of the F.A. Cup to report just how much victorious clubs get for progression to the third-round proper.

But, in the context of midfielder O`Toole`s long-term Colchester United future it would mean he has started paying for himself already.

That`s if he signs. He`s clearly a player Boothroyd likes and after the ninety-fourth minuet goal against this weekend it isn`t hard to see why. Young, previously proven at a higher level, he also has a keen eye for the bag on sticks.

Pre-match, the boss had plenty of praise for a blue-chip boy he first coached to relative fame at Watford. "I like my midfield players to scrap, fight, be creative, attacking and six-foot five. What John-Joe does, no matter how he plays, is have a scrap; you can always rely on him. He`s horrible to play against."

And so it proved yesterday!
