Former Town defender on trial at U’s

COLCHESTER United manager John Ward will run the rule over former Ipswich Town defender Seb Dunbar in a reserve team game against Stevenage tonight.

The 18-year-old came through the ranks at Portman Road but, after signing a short-term contract under Roy Keane, was released by the club. He has been training with the U’s in recent weeks.

Tonight’s game at Maldon & Tiptree’s Wallace Binder Stadium (7pm ko) is Colchester’s first East Reserve League outing of the year.

Forward Matthias Viljhlmsson and left-back Conor Powell – both January signings – will both feature as they continue their search for full match fitness, while full-back Morten Knudsen will continue his good progress following a long-term knee injury.

Experienced first team players Pat Baldwin, Anthony Wordsworth, Ian Henderson and Kayode Odejayi are also set to play.
