Virgo Tempted by Adams Linkup
Colchester United`s ninth summer arrival Adam Virgo has told the local press in Essex that the Micky Adams` presence as number two tempted the former Brighton, Coventry and Celtic man to accept the six-month loan contract.
Virgo, 24, had already worked with Adams last season at Coventry City in the Championship and in the player`s hometown outfit Brighton and Hove Albion.
The player revealed in today`s Colchester Evening Gazette: "Micky Adams has been my mentor for a long time and he gave me my professional debut for Brighton.
"Working with him turned out to be an advantage for me at Coventry and I hope it will here." The player, who has been hampered by injuries in recent times, went on to say that he chose to join the U`s over several other sides.
