DOMINIC Samuel has become the latest player to sign for Colchester United.

Young front-runner Samuel has been recruited on a month’s loan from Reading, and will go straight into the squad for this Saturday’s tough away game at Doncaster Rovers.

Samuel explained: “I was very surprised to get the call from Colchester.

“But I was excited at the same time, with the chance to play first team football. It will be good to play in a different team.”

Samuel was originally with Millwall, before being released as a youngster, and he was playing Sunday League football when he was later picked up by Reading.

The 18-year-old has gone on to play for England Under-19s, and has made one senior appearance for Reading, in a 3-0 defeat at Sunderland last month.

“I’ve had a mad start to my career,” added Samuel.

With eight games to go, Ipswich Town are still not safe from relegation to League One, following a tough season in the Championship, and lost 3-1 at Cardiff City at the weekend.

Mick McCarthy says his managerial record is the reason for his longevity at Portman Road, not owner Marcus Evans’ perceived patience with his managers.

Ipswich Town will not be backtracking on their decision to raise the price of season tickets, despite a huge outcry from supporters.

Loan duo Dominic Samuel and Jonny Williams made timely injury comebacks last night as a strong Ipswich Town Under-23 side drew 1-1 with Crewe at Portman Road.

Ipswich Town have suffered a double injury blow with the news that forward duo David McGoldrick and Tom Lawrence have had to withdraw from the Republic of Ireland and Wales squads respectively.
