Transfer News: One In, One Out For U's

It was the tale of two full-backs today for Colchester United in the transfer market; one joining, the other leaving; one young, the other old; one right-sided, the other left-sided...

Highly-rated youngster Christian Ribeiro signs on a months loan from Bristol City, while veteran Matt Lockwood heads out to Barnet for a similar spell.

Good bit of a business. A tidy signing and good for Locky to get some football.
