Phil Parkinson has been boosted by the news midfielder Kevin Watson has signed a new one-year contract at Layer Road.
The 30-year-old played an integral role in the U's promotion to the Championship last season and Vital Colchester understands that an additional 12-month extension will be made available subject to relegation being avoided...
Kevin told BBC Essex, 'It's good to get it sorted out because we've been having talks since before the last game of the season. I've really enjoyed my two years so far at Colchester and there is no doubt we've punched above our weight.
'The chairman is quite strict about not giving two-year contracts to players over 30 but I think I've got the next best thing which is a year and then an automatic further year if we stay up, and I don't see a problem with that.'
