Sean Clohessy, who snubbed his manager very publicly at Doncaster two weekends ago, continues to be frozen out of the Colchester United squad.

Right-back Clohessy, a former U’s skipper and regular vice-captain, refused to shake his manager Tony Humes’ hand, after being substituted midway through the second-half of the recent 2-0 defeat at Doncaster.

Ex-Southend defender Clohessy was a glaring absentee from the 18-man squad for last Tuesday night’s 1-0 home defeat to Notts County, and he did not even travel to Rochdale for Saturday’s 2-1 defeat.

Manager Humes said: “This football club is about building a team, and building togetherness.

“Certain things are acceptable and certain things aren’t, and we’ve got to move on from that.”

Asked whether Clohessy would be involved with the U’s set-up in the future, Humes said: “I don’t know.

“You can never say never, we’ve just got to see how things develop in that respect.

“He is not part of my plans at the moment, we are trying to set standards and values at the football club that the young players have got to learn from.

“It’s all about how we move forward as a football club.

“We’ve got to look at the positive things happening at the football club, rather than anything else.

“There are a lot of impressionable young players here, who we need to look after and to guide in the right direction.

“And that’s not just down to the management side. It’s also down to the players to do the right things, and have the right values which the club wants to set.”
