Hall praises free-scoring U's
Colchester United development coach Richard Hall was impressed with his side after they thrashed Harlow Town last night.
A vastly experienced U’s side beat their Ryman League division one north opponents 8-1, in the Essex Senior Cup third round.
Hall said: “It was good for the younger players and playing alongside the senior players would have been a great learning experience for them.
“It was even good for the boys who were sat on the bench with me, watching the way the senior players approached the game.
“The game is never too easy and if our standards are high, hopefully we can do it more often.
“These players can go as high as they want to - it’s up to them.
“We don’t want them to drop their standards and they have to apply themselves every minute that they’re training or playing.”
