HANDS OFF our manager!

Colchester United defender, Marc Tierney, has already played under three managers since his move to the Weston Homes Community Stadium from Shrewsbury Town a year ago.

It was Paul Lambert who originally signed him, since when he has also played for caretaker boss Joe Dunne and current manager Aidy Boothroyd.

Tierney believes that the U's can achieve great things under Boothroyd, so is hoping that the former Watford manager is at the helm for many years to come.

The U's left-back was referring to Darren Ferguson's recent shock dismissal from Peterborough this week, and the subsequent claim from Posh director of football, Barry Fry, that Ferguson had already been “tapped up” by another club.

Ferguson has since vehemently denied such a claim.

“The news coming out of Peterborough brings it home to you, about keep off managers stuff,” explained Tierney.

“To me, the structure feels really good here (at Colchester). We are all working hard together as a group. We want to keep hold of players.

“We feel we can do great things this season. We want the squad to stick together with the management team,” added Tierney.

The promotion-chasing U's entertain Exeter City on Saturday.
