Callum Harriott has returned to his parent club Charlton Athletic, after a successful loan spell with Colchester United.
Flying winger Harriott scored seven goals, and also contributed seven assists, in 22 senior appearances during his time with the U’s.
Although he leaves the U’s in bottom spot, in League One, he can still be proud of his achievements at the Essex club, since his arrival on August 28.
The 21-year-old was certainly appreciated by U’s supporters.
“Thank you for everything” – that was Harriott’s message to Colchester United, following his last appearance as a substitute in yesterday’s 1-0 defeat at Gillingham.
“I’d like to thank Colchester United for giving me the opportunity to play, and help the club,” continued Harriott.
“It was good to get back scoring and enjoying football with such great team-mates.
“I have enjoyed my time here and wish you (the U’s) all the very best for the rest of the season.”
U’s fans have been quick to pass on their gratitude to Harriott, via Twitter.
