The 36-year-old versatile utility player, who retired from the professional game at the end of last season, has signed a contract for the rest of the season at Stanway after leaving his role as a U’s youth-team coach earlier this month.

Duguid is one of Colchester’s top appearance-makers of all time having made more than 400 League appearances for the U’s, including a spell which saw him captain the side to promotion into the Championship in the 2005-2006 season.

The much-adored midfielder, who hinted at dusting off his boots again after leaving the Weston Homes Community Stadium a little over a week ago, is undoubtedly a coup signing for ambitious Step 5 non-league side Stanway Rovers, who currently sit in fifth position in the Thurlow Nunn Premier Division.

Duguid goes straight into boss Angelo Harrop’s first team-squad on Saturday as Rovers travel to Hertford Town in an eagerly-anticipated FA Vase First Round Proper tie.
