Massey returns to Colchester

First published in Sport by

Colchester United have re-signed Gavin Massey on loan for another month from Watford.

The 19-year-old Hornets attacker has returned to the U's for a second spell, after making three appearances for John Ward's side during January and February.

Massey said: "I know what the club and the players are about, having been here for a month before.

"I enjoyed playing here and it was a shame that it got cut short.

"I'm now looking forward to Saturday and the other games coming up."

Massey will be available for Colchester's next eight games and goes into their squad for their home game against Huddersfield Town, tomorrow.

I must admit to being rather bemused by these loan signings. We get told that finances are tight at the club, yet we have Vincent back from injury and sureley some of the youngsters now need to be given their chance. When we wanted the added boost for fresh players to help any promotion push early in the season nothing was done which again seems typical the way this club acts. Its not a moan, I just find it frustrating. J.W. has most likely got his reasons and may be is running the rule over them as future permanent signings. Good luck tommorow lads .

This move seems strange when Freddie Sears has been kept on the bench. Will this happen to Gavin Massey too?
As so often, Saint Crazy hits the spot with his comments. But maybe John Ward has a new plan (we can but dream).
Does he want the team to go all out on the attack from the kick-off, win games 3-0 or 4-1, and build up a decent goal difference in case we finish level on points with Notts County or whoever is 6th by the end of the season? If so, we could be in for an exciting run over the next few weeks.
We should be safe from relegation now, so why not go for broke?
Up the U's.

all that extra gate money earned this season has to be spent somewhere.

I think they are good players, but they should be on the pitch. Perhaps try Sears down the left and woody in centre, instead of Izzet. And Massey upfront with the mighty Stevie G
