Former Colchester United club captain Kem Izzet has joined Ryman League division one north side Needham Market.

Izzet, who made more than 450 appearances for the U's in a long and distinguished spell at the club, signed for the Suffolk side ahead of their league game at Witham Town on Tuesday night.

He ended his time with the U's last week after having his contract terminated by mutual agreement.

The midfielder began his time with Needham on the bench alongside another former Colchester United player, Jamie Guy.
