Rowlands joins Colchester
Even though the transfer window closed on Tuesday this has not stopped Colchester from adding to their ranks with the signing of Martin Rowlands.
The U's have been able to sign the midfielder as he was released by QPR earlier this week.
John Ward, as he told the official website, was keen to sign up Rowlands and moved quickly when he heard of his availability with him signing for the club until the end of the season initially: 'Martin has a wealth of experience and when we heard he was leaving QPR we moved quickly to get him across here. We had seen him play in a behind-closed-doors game recently and my ears pricked up when I heard he might be available.
'The move means we have got a bit more seniority in the squad now and he has ambitions to go beyond the end of the season with us.'
32-year-old Rowlands, a former Republic of Ireland international, had been with QPR since 2003 with him being their longest serving player.
