Andy Bond leaves Colchester United
Out-of-favour midfielder Andy Bond has left Colchester United.
Bond has had his contract cancelled by mutual consent.
The 27-year-old was John Ward’s first signing, when he arrived from Barrow in the summer of 2010. He made his debut in the opening day 2-2 draw against Exeter.
He went on to play 118 league games for the U’s, following on from his 161 league outings for Barrow, but has been rarely used by manager Joe Dunne over the last year, despite scoring a dramatic 88th minute winner in a 1-0 victory at Gillingham on the first day of this campaign.
Bond has had loan spells at Crewe, his first club, and also at Bristol Rovers earlier this season, when he again teamed up with Ward.

His last start for the U’s was in the 3-2 defeat to Sheffield United in the FA Cup last November, when he was substituted at half-time.
His last appearance was as a late substitute in the 4-0 home defeat to Notts County on December 14.
