Chris Lewington has set his sights on becoming Colchester United’s new first-choice goalkeeper.

And the shot-stopper says he will do everything in his power to begin the season in Joe Dunne’s starting line-up.

Lewington will battle it out with Sam Walker to be the U’s number one keeper, after joining them from Dagenham and Redbridge.

Lewington said: “Sam has got the shirt at the moment and it’s up to me to come in and try and make it mine."
