  • "Watched the U21 match against Wales and LG did very well, so well in fact that during the first half the commentators sounded like they were having an **** with his every touch.

    Shame no mention of his time and role he played at CUFC"

Luke Garbutt has been praised by Colchester United manager Joe Dunne after the young left-back was called up to the England under-21 squad.

The Everton youngster is hoping to win his first under-21 cap for Gareth Southgate’s side after being called up for next Monday’s Euro qualifier with Wales, along with the forthcoming Toulon tournament.

Garbutt was hugely impressive in his four-month loan spell with the U’s, where he made 20 appearances and scored three goals.

Dunne said: “I hope Luke has a career at the very top of this game and he did very well for us.

“He’s a very enthusiastic young footballer who stayed back and did extra training every day, like practising his free-kicks.

“It’s an attitude that will take him to a very high level and we hope that’s the Premier League.”
