COLCHESTER United currently have a host of players out on loan.

The Gazette looks at how they fared, over the recent action.


Attacking midfielder Cooper played for 62 minutes in Hartlepool United’s 3-1 defeat at Maidenhead United in the National League, on Tuesday night.

The former Spurs youngster had made the starting line-up having come on as a 72nd-minute substitute in Pools’ 2-0 win over Aldershot Town, last weekend.


Cooper has made nine appearances for Hartlepool since joining them on loan from Colchester, in February.

Hartlepool’s win against Aldershot was their fifth in seven matches under boss Kevin Phillips, at the Suit Direct Stadium.


Colchester United academy product Kennedy helped Welling United claim a point in their 0-0 draw at Havant and Waterlooville, on Tuesday night.

The youngster was recalled to the Welling starting line-up for the National League South game and had a decent chance to score for the Wings when he found himself clean through from an excellent pass, but his shot was saved.

Kennedy helped Welling beat Torquay United, last weekend.


The midfielder came on as a 62nd-minute substitute in their 1-0 victory and went close with a shot, soon after coming off the bench.

Kennedy, who linked up with the National League South side in February, is playing under former Braintree Town boss Rod Stringer at the J Hearnden Skip Hire Community Stadium, along with ex-Colchester United favourite Kevin Watson, who is assistant manager at Welling.



Terry scored his first goal for Aveley as they drew 1-1 at Truro City, in National League South.

The Millers played for more than half the game with only men after Jason Ring was sent off after being adjudged to have been the last man when he pulled down Munakandafa.

Terry, who returned to the Aveley starting line-up, had earlier headed in from Charlee Hughes’ pinpoint delivery.

Aveley, who sit just outside the play-off places, travel to take on Weston-Super-Mare in their last away game of the campaign, this weekend.


Left-back Kazeem was left without a game at the weekend after Galway United’s scheduled League of Ireland derby clash with Sligo Rovers was postponed.


The game was called off over health and safety concerns owing to the risk of travelling, flying debris and power outages in the Sligo area amid an Orange Weather Warning issued by Met Eireann.

Kazeem, who joined Galway on loan on February 8, will be at the League of Ireland side until the end of the season.

Galway United travel to the RSC to play Waterford, on Friday night.


Centre-back Nelson played the full 90 minutes for Dartford in their 2-1 home defeat to Worthing in National League South, on Tuesday night.

Last weekend, Nelson helped Dartford claim a 2-1 win at Havant and Waterlooville.

The former Leicester City defender will be hoping to help the Kent side to a strong finish, with two games to go.

The Darts currently lie 21st in the table.


Nelson made his full debut for Colchester earlier this season when he featured in their home defeat to Spurs under-21s in their Bristol Street Motors Trophy group game, last September.


Young U’s defender Beadle, who recently made his 50th appearance for Bishop’s Stortford, was part of their side that suffered a 4-0 thumping at Rushall Olympic in National League North on Tuesday night.

Former U’s youngster Lordon Akolbire was sent off for Blues after picking up two yellow cards.

The Blues also suffered a heavy 7-0 loss at South Shields, last weekend.


Stortford boss Steve Smith announced shortly after that game that he will step down from his role as Blues first-team manager at the end of the season.


COLCHESTER United duo Sandah and Oni started for Maldon and Tiptree in their 5-2 win at Stowmarket Town, on Tuesday night, with Yates and Edwards on the substitutes bench.

The quartet all started the Jammers’ 1-0 defeat at Cole Skuse’s Bury Town last weekend, in Pitching In Isthmian League division one.

Gazette: Jamie Cureton

The four U’s players are all now playing under former Colchester favourite Jamie Cureton, who has taken interim charge at Park Drive following Liam Bailey’s return to his academy role at Colchester.

The four youngsters will be hoping to help the Jammers achieve a strong finish to the season.
