Dunne wants his U's players to give everything
Joe Dunne has outlined his vision to bring success to Colchester United .
And the U’s manager has urged his players to give everything for the club badge.
Dunne has been appointed as Colchester’s new manager on a one-year rolling contract.
He replaces John Ward, who was sacked as U’s boss on Monday.
Dunne has wasted no time in stamping his own mark on the role.
He has brought in former U’s favourite Mark Kinsella as his assistant.
And he has also bolstered his squad by signing three players on loan.
Jabo Ibehre has joined from League One rivals MK Dons on a three-month loan deal, while young Arsenal pair Craig Eastmond and Sanchez Watt have also signed.
Dunne takes charge of his first game as U’s boss tomorrow, looking to guide them to their first win of the season.
And ahead of Colchester’s home clash with Hartlepool United, he is vowed to give U’s fans a team they can be proud of.
Dunne said: “I’m very enthusiastic about the way I want to take the club forward and I have a clear vision of where I want the club to be.
“I expect my players to be brave about the way I want to do it.
“If they can’t do it at the moment don’t shout at them, shout at me.
“They will need your full support and when you come, I need you to support the team.
“I will promise that I will give you a team that will do their best for Colchester United.”
