    It's a bit worrying further down the academy ladder though judging by a recent schools result :

    YEAR 10 BOYS’ FOOTBALL TEAM
    PARTNERSHIP FINAL

    Colchester Academy 0 The Stanway School 5

    On Wednesday, 23rd April Stanway travelled to Thurstable School to play in the Colchester Schools’ Final on the artificial pitch and won with five goals in the final fifteen minutes!
    There has been worse results in every level of the football league this season and goals scored just as quick!
    Forgive me, but we are not talking about the football league here. We are talking about what should be the cream of youngsters selected by Colchester United pitting their wits against an ordinary school team of similar age and getting a right old spanking. Hopefully this is not symptomatic of the academy in general, but at this age group, it would appear the club have not selected the best."

Clinton Morrison insists he has no regrets about joining Colchester United, ahead of his summer exit from the club.

The experienced striker is set to make his farewell appearance for the U’s at Walsall tomorrow, after it was agreed he would leave by mutual consent.

Morrison’s contract is due to expire this summer and he will now seek pastures new, bringing down the curtain on his two-year spell with the U’s.

The 34-year-old has scored just four times for Colchester since joining them on a free transfer from Sheffield Wednesday, in 2012.

Morrison has struggled at times to hold down a regular starting-place but insists he has enjoyed his time at the Weston Homes Community Stadium.

He said: “I’ve got no regrets.

“I’ve enjoyed the two years I’ve had here and Colchester are a great club.

“It’s been brilliant and I’ll definitely look out for their results in the future.

“I’ll always look out for this club, because in my heart I’ve played for them."
