'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Job Dunne!

Without even needing to take temporary charge for a game Joe Dunne has been appointed as the new Colchester manager.

Dunne was appointed caretaker manager earlier this week following John Ward's sacking but Robbie Cowling has, in a statement released, confirmed that he's decided Dunne is the man for the job: 'It was not an easy decision to part company with John Ward because he had worked so hard to achieve so much for Colchester United Football Club. However, it was an easy choice when it came to selecting John's successor.

'Joe has been with Colchester United for 16 years as a player, youth-team manager, reserve manager, assistant manager, caretaker manager and now he is first-team manager.

'Joe takes charge of Colchester United when the club's long-term prospects are the best they have ever been, but at a time when the short-term future is one of its most challenging.'

The 39-year-old had acted as assistant manager to Ward and has spent the past 16-years with The U's as a player and coach.

Good luck to Dunne, hopefully he can improve Colchester's fortunes, which haven't been great so far this season!
