Doogie: New Boys Doing Well

Doogie: New Boys Doing Well

Karl Duguid, Colchester United`s long-serving captain, has given his thumbs-up to the nine new signings brought in by manager Geriant Williams over the summer to redevelop what was a record-breaking squad.

Duguid, 29, thinks that the additions represent a "breath of fresh-air," especially in light of the exodus endured by the U`s at the end last season, where several key players left immediately after the club had recorded a highest-ever league placing.

The then newly-promoted side recorded an unprecedented tenth place finish in the Championship, although suffered a heavy break-up of the successful team. Forwards Chris Iwelumo and Jamie Cureton, the division`s most prolific strike paring during 2005-6, where among the high-profile list of casualties.

But skipper Duguid, a known fan of replacement striker Teddy Sheringham, said this week: "The lads who have come in have been a breath of fresh air. The defenders have stepped in well and the forwards are scoring goals.

'It can take time to gel because we lost a lot of players and a lot of goals from last year,' said Duguid, who was speaking at the recent Wickes Wall of Fame launch.

'It's been a big turnover but we've all just got on with it,' he added.

Yeah they all seem to be doing very well, credit should be given to them and to George for how he's gone about in the transfer market.
