Boothroyd Praises Class-Act Prutton

Boothroyd Praises Class-Act Prutton

Aidy Boothroyd labelled new-boy David Prutton 'a very good player' following a fantastic 25-yard wonder goal just two minutes into his debut.

The 28-year-old former Nottingham Forest man penned a loan deal at the Weston Homes Community Stadium just hours before marking his U's arrival with a contender for goal of the season. And rumours that a permenant deal was in the offing have proved true, with the U's boss confirming this.

Boothroyd, speaking to BBC Essex, post-match, explained: 'The plan is to make it permanent. He's a very good player, he's been there and done it.'

A full-time move is likely to go through in the next few days, although Prutton will not be able to face parent club Leeds United on Saturday.

'In a team that's growing we've got to have people in the dressing room and out on the pitch who can lead,' Boothroyd added.

We let him go, and have kept him and got rid of someone else

He seems like a class act. Comfortable on the ball. I don't think he made any missed place passes. And the goal!! Nice
