KARL Duguid, who today returned to Colchester United on a one-year contract, could not have dreamt up a better move.

The 33-year-old, who made his U’s first team debut back in 1995 and stayed with the club until 2008, will play for a U’s XI at Woodbridge Town in a pre-season friendly this evening.
