U's stalwart Owen returns in scouting revamp
Brian Owen has returned to Colchester United, as part of the club's revamped scouting network.
Owen returns to the U's for a fourth spell as their chief recruitment scout, having previously represented them as a player, coach, scout and physio.
Owen played for Colchester between 1970 and 1972 and rejoined the club in 1993 as a coach and then a scout, before leaving in 2009.
Owen's return is part of a restructuring of the scouting system at the Weston Homes Community Stadium.
U's boss Joe Dunne said: "We need people here who know and love the club and I think we've lost that a bit over recent years.
"When you look around our club, only me and Mark Kinsella have been here before.
"I want people at this club who will run through a brick wall for me and I know that I have people here who will do that."
