COLCHESTER United chairman Robbie Cowling says he is happy with the amount of compensation a tribunal has ruled Norwich City must pay the Essex club over their controversial appointment of manager Paul Lambert.

COLCHESTER United chairman Robbie Cowling says he is happy with the amount of compensation a tribunal has ruled Norwich City must pay the Essex club over their controversial appointment of manager Paul Lambert.

Lambert switched from Colchester to Norwich last August, leading an angry Cowling to report their rivals for a breach of rules. The Norfolk club have always maintained they acted appropriately.

A Football League disciplinary commission heard both club’s cases in London at the end of April and Cowling says he has now been informed of their findings.

Both clubs are currently unable to disclose any of the results, however Cowling yesterday hinted that the U’s are set to receive a significant sum of money from their East Anglian rivals.

“A decision has been reached on everything but we are still waiting to find out what can be disclosed and what can’t be disclosed,” said the U’s chairman and owner.

“I’ve got as smile on my face regarding the compensation, but I don’t think they went far enough with any further sanctions.
