Sears joins Colchester

Sears joins Colchester

The loss of Gavin Massey, who returned to Watford this week, was not felt for long by Colchester as they today brought in Freddie Sears on loan from West Ham.

Sears is someone that John Ward was keen to bring in and is happy that the striker opted for The U's over other clubs: 'A lot of work went in last night to get him here and he'll meet us at Brentwood to join us on the coach to Yeovil.

'Freddie has been at different clubs in the Championship and has also played in the Premier League and we feel it is a bit of a coup to get him in and play for us.

'I spoke to him last night, and he was very happy to come here. There was interest from elsewhere, but he has decided to come to us.'

22-year-old Sears has joined Colchester for an initial one-month spell.
