Colchester's Brown The Model Pro

Colchester's Brown The Model Pro

Wayne Brown earlier this week handed in his transfer request and unlike former team mates long departed the 29 year old defender remains totally professional stating personal ambition for wanting a transfer instead of blaming others for his decision.

The professionalism of the man is all aparent as I am led to believe that an apology was offered with the timing of his request which coincidentally came at the time of Colchester's biggest signing to date.

Speaking to Karl Marston in today's EADT Brown went on to say:

"Nothing much has changed in the last 24 hours. I'm keeping an open mind. The club have been in communication with me, but there has been no further offer yet," revealed Brown last night.

"It'd difficult to say what will happen, and it's still early days to say whether I will still be at the club for the new season.

"However, I've had a fitness work-out with the squad today, and pre-season training starts in earnest on Monday.

"As it stands, I'm still a Colchester United player, so I will be reporting in for training with the rest of the lads," added Brown.

Some others really need to stand up and take note, I hope he does not go however I feel the club should not stand in his way and hope that his wishes will be taken into consideration. At the end of the day we have already lost the player lets take some cash and move on.

Good article. Nice to see a goos side to the game when we've had back news with the eados. But the squad looks nice and full again. Either the club will have to sell up or give him the pay he deserves; he's a goal-saver and great with Baldwin at the back.

A foward, Rob! But apart from that, remeber we have Garry Richards. Perhaps Wayno is worth the same as Curo, even though he is only a CB!

Yeh true we need a couple of those Matt well at least 1 more. Garry is an option if they use him this year. Spoz Duguid could drop back again.
