Kem Izzet made his return from injury as Colchester United under-21s were beaten 4-3 at neighbours Ipswich Town.

Izzet made his first competitive appearance in nearly two months following an ankle injury when he featured in the U's game.

Alex Gilbey, Jordan Sanderson and Jack Compton were all on target for Colchester.

But Town ran out winners thanks to a hat-trick from Frank Nouble and a further strike from Andy Drury.

The likes of Matt Heath and Drey Wright also featured for the U's in the Professional Development League Two match.

Joe Dunne should take note of Drey Wright, Alex Gilbey and Izzet performances, as I believe these players are as good if not better than the current loan players/ new signing we have playing in the first team.
Love him or loathe him Izzet gives us bite in the midfield which we are missing at the moment with Wright/Clifford/Bean
.
Had to laugh at a post suggesting Magnus play in midfield, NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
OOO, Magnus would be a complete liability in midfield as his range of passing ranges from hitting it hard to hitting it harder, plus his reading of the game is poor.
Young Gilbey could do a job for us in central midfield, (good passer of ball and an eye for goal) he has proven (under 21 squad) that he is as good a player as Clifford, plus he is not an Oompaloompah plus from what I have seen he will not be pushed off the ball as easy as young Clifford.
Drey Wright is as good as Porter or Massey, and really do not understand the reasons for him not playing.
Come on Joe Dunne and drop some of these loanees as they really are not up for the situation we find ourselves in. Believe a squad player will always give you more than a loanee, especially when the chips are down.
One final thing please put David Wright out to grass, worst signing I have seen for a very long while.

Good to see izzet is back. There is a lot of people who slate izzet for his backward passing, but he is the perfect foil for allowing the wingers, wing backs, and other midfielders to get forward. Every team needs players with a selfless awareness.

A lot of us probably wish Kem Izzet was under 21 again. He would then be able to play another 90 minutes to-night against Yeovil, and we would be less likely to get another hammering. Anyway it looks as if he should be back soon to the first team, where he belongs.
Welcome back, Kem.

Kem Izzet in the U-21 team? He's just had a 10 year testamonial. Always thought he looked younger than he was - now we find he was playing for us aged 11!!
