FORMER Colchester United winger Courtney Senior is on the lookout for a new club after being released by Newport County.

The 24-year-old is one of a number of players who the League Two club have announced will be leaving, this summer.

Senior signed for Newport on a one-year deal, last summer.

But he failed to make an appearance for the Exiles after rupturing knee ligaments in pre-season, last summer.

It resulted in him undergoing surgery on his right leg and he leaves Newport without playing a first-team game for the club.


Senior was one of a number of players to leave Colchester in May 2021, following the expiry of his contract at the JobServe Community Stadium.

The former Brentford youngster made 145 appearances for the Uโ€™s and scored 14 goals, during his five-year stint with Colchester.

Senior joined Colchester in June 2016 but experienced a nightmare first season with the Uโ€™s after suffering an anterior cruciate ligament in pre-season.

But he went on to become a first-team regular for the U's in League Two under John McGreal and then his successor, Steve Ball.

Newport have announced that Ryan Haynes, Alex Fisher, Padraig Amond, Louis Hall and Ryan Hillier will also be leaving the South Wales club, this summer.
