Essex County Standard: New arrival - Chris Lewington will provide competition for Sam Walker at Colchester United. New arrival - Chris Lewington will provide competition for Sam Walker at Colchester United.

Colchester United have completed the signing of goalkeeper Chris Lewington on a two-year deal.

Lewington, who made more than 150 league and cup appearances for Dagenham and Redbridge before leaving them this summer, will battle it out with Sam Walker for the number one position at the U's.

U's boss Joe Dunne said: “Chris has been very consistent at Dagenham and great credit to Wayne (Burnett) and everybody there for bringing him through.

“At some stage, a player comes to a stage in his career where he tries to move on.

“It happened really quickly and as soon as I knew it was a possibility I dived on it, because I think he’s a very good young keeper.

“I now have two quality number ones and they can fight it out for the position."

They'll probably be one but think the consensus is that we can still get more from Jabo and Sears, and a lot is expected from Macca Bonne this season....Would like to see a quality addition though...

Not a bad replacement for Walker, when he moves to Ipswich.

He will keep Sam Walker on his toes, and I'm sure he will get his chance at some stage next season, particularly after Christmas.

Dunne is rumoured to be backing away from signing another striker. If this is the case, then It looks like there will be a shortage of goals again next season.

So Mark Cousins went to Daggers, and Chris Lewington comes here. Seems odd. But good luck to both.

Why would Sam Walker want to play second fiddle to Dean Gerken?
