Colchester United’s owner and chairman, Robbie Cowling, has revealed that Tony Humes will still be the U’s manager for next season.
The U’s are in serious danger of suffering relegation to League Two, following Saturday’s 2-2 home draw against Scunthorpe.
They are four points adrift of safety, with just three matches remaining.
But Humes, who took over as U’s boss at the beginning of last September, following Joe Dunne’s departure, has been given the long-term backing of his chairman.
Cowling revealed “Tony (Humes) is the manager of Colchester, and I’m extremely pleased with what he is doing.

Cowling also dismissed rumours that Alan Devonshire, who left Braintree Town after four successful years at the helm last week, would become the U’s boss.
