Knowing Me, Knowing U`s - John Ward

John Ward`s familiarity with the current Colchester United squad is either going to be a blessing or a curse.

He has already said the team will have to treat him differently now he`s leaped from number two to boss, but highlighted how he can help the club grow based on his rapport with several of the squad.

Ward has worked with goalie Ben Williams, defender Paul Reid and midfielder Simon Hackney during his days at Carlisle, while he also has one-to-one experience with striker Steven Gillespie and winger Ashley Vincent from their days together at Cheltenham.

Ward however also said he may have to make some decisions about their livelihoods which may not prove universally popular.
