Colchester United have restructured the way they recruit new players.

Jonathan Duckett has been promoted to the newly-created role of data analyst, where he will be tasked with helping the U’s in their search for new faces.

The 29-year-old has been elevated from his position of performance analyst, which he has filled at Colchester since 2006.

Aspire Media is the holding company of CUFC.
Cant some of these back room jobs be part of the holding companys admin team?
What is the Assistant Managers job?
Surely he and the other key trainers can multitask.
The point is that the team will not progress unless most of the CUFC budget is focused on the key match winning players-not wasted on Administration/Analy
sis.

Yes well you may not like the comments.
But if at 5pm on 9/8 Brian Wilson and his pie eating Oldham Northerners
have beaten us because the mistakes of last year have not been put right-all the preseason goals will have counted for nothing.
