Maybury Moves To St Johnstone


Alan Maybury has left Colchester United in a return to Scotland, signing for St. Johnstone until the end of the season.

The 32-year-old former Leeds, Leicester, Hearts and Aberdeen
defender spent nearly a year without a game at the club and was largely preferred only under former club boss and now Norwich manager, Paul Lambert.

Lambert signed the experienced player on a free eighteen months ago but since then Colchester have seen Aidy Boothroyd come and go to Coventry, meanwhile leaving Maybury languishing as a sometimes third or fourth option as fight full back.

John Ward, current boss, praised the player`s professionalism before allowing him to leave with good grace this week.

Was probably on a fair wage so at least it frees some money up for a new signing or two before the window closes
