400 up for Karl Duguid

KARL Duguid is poised to make his 400th league appearance in a Colchester United shirt, at home to Sheffield United tomorrow.

Duguid will become only the sixth U’s player to reach this landmark, following in the footsteps of Micky Cook, Mike Walker, Steve Leslie, Peter Wright and John Fowler.

Manager John Ward paid tribute to his 33-year-old winger during yesterday’s press conference.

“It’s an incredible feat to play 400 games for any club these days, or in fact any days,” explained Ward.

“We’ve all seen lots of very good players flick in and out of the game, and not had a good career.

“But good people are those that stick around and make sure their careers last as long as they can, by doing it properly,” added Ward.

Duguid’s current team-mate, Kem Izzet, is in line to play his 397th league game for the U’s tomorrow.
