‘There’s a lot to go yet for this football club’ - John Ward
COLCHESTER United boss John Ward felt that his team deserved their entertaining 4-2 victory over Tranmere Rovers, achieved in the wind and rain at the Weston Homes Community Stadium this afternoon.
The U’s consolidated their position in 10th spot of League One, thanks to goals from Ian Henderson, Tom Eastman, an Ian Goodison own goal and a late strike by Freddie Sears.
Ward was quick to praise his players, and also insisted that there was much more to come from his squad, looking ahead to next season.
“We’ve scored four goals at home, and for me it is what they have deserved over the season basically,” enthused Ward.
“We’ve drawn too many games over the last eight weeks. There were matches when we could have done what we’ve done today, by finding the net a little bit more.

“It’s been a nice reward for everybody and its been well-received.
“We are a close-knit football club, and the players asked if they could take their children and their wives and girlfriends along (to the post-match awards ceremony on the pitch).
“I think there’s a lot to go yet for this football club,” added Ward.
The U’s end their season at Notts County next Saturday.
