FORMER Colchester United defender Lee Beevers has signed for Walsall on a free transfer.

FORMER Colchester United defender Lee Beevers has signed for Walsall on a free transfer.

Defender Beevers, a centre-half or full-back, was released by the U’s this summer but will now be staying in League One with the Saddlers.

Beevers, a former Ipswich Town trainee, did not enjoy much success at Colchester during his two-year stay, following his switch from Lincoln City in the summer of 2009.

A regular for the Imps (166 league appearances), Beevers was hampered by injuries while with the U’s, most notably a shoulder injury at the start of his time at the Community Stadium. He only started 16 games in League One for United, and 23 league appearances in all.
