Ben Coker has left Colchester United after having his contract cancelled.

The attacking left-back has become the latest U's player to depart the Weston Homes Community Stadium, following Ian Henderson, Michael Rose, Tom Bender and Carl Pentney out of the club.

Coker's first-team opportunities have been few and far between this season and he has not figured in League One under boss Joe Dunne.

His last league appearance for Colchester came in their 1-0 defeat at Brentford, in September.

Coker, 23, joined Colchester from non-league outfit Bury Town in the summer of 2008.

He made nearly 50 appearances for the U's, scoring once.
