Colchester United caretaker manager, Wayne Brown, has revealed that he would love to have the opportunity to manage the U’s full-time.
Speaking at his first press conference, at the Essex club’s training ground at Florence Park, Tiptree this lunchtime, Brown confirmed that he would be in charge on a caretaker basis for the next two games.
He will therefore be at the helm for Sunday’s FA Cup second round tie against non-league Altrincham, and then the following Saturday’s important League One relegation showdown against bottom club Barnsley.
Brown admitted: “I’d love an opportunity to manage Colchester United.
“I don’t think that is any secret.

“I’ve had a good response from the lads with what we’ve been trying to put into them, and I’ve tried to make it enjoyable for them,” added Brown.
Former U’s skipper and centre-half Brown, who began this season in charge of the under-18s, will be assisted by John McGreal for the visit of National League side Altrincham on Sunday (kick-off 2pm).
