‘It’s a positive way to end the season’ – Colchester United boss Joe Dunne

Colchester United boss, Joe Dunne, has been delighted with the way that his side have ended the season.

The U’s recorded a final day 1-0 win at Walsall this afternoon, to finish their League One campaign on 53 points and in 16th spot.

Craig Eastmond’s rather fortuitous 53rd minute goal – his block on James Chambers’ attempted clearance flew into the net – earned all three points for the Essex club.

“It’s a positive way to end the season, and another positive away performance,” enthused Dunne.

“Three wins and a draw kind of mirrors the form just before Christmas when the weather closed in.
