COLCHESTER United have beefed up their attacking options by announcing two signings in quick succession.

First, the U's confirmed the signature of Cambridge United striker Jevani Brown.

Then, half an hour later, the club revealed the arrival of former Millwall, Portsmouth and Wycombe Wanderers player Paris Cowan-Hall.

The attacking wide man has joined on a free transfer and penned a two-year contract.

He arrives from Wycombe, with 266 career appearances under his belt, having started his career at Portsmouth during their Premier League era.

He subsequently had loan spells at Grimsby, Scunthorpe and Rushden before leaving Pompey.

Cowan-Hall joined Woking next and caught the attention of Plymouth, where he spent the 2012/13 campaign.

His first stint at Wycombe came in the 2013/14 campaign and, after 18 months at Adams Park, he was signed by Millwall in January 2015.

A year later and the 28-year-old was back with the Chairboys on loan for the second half of the 2015/16 campaign.

He also spent the first half of the 2016/17 campaign on loan with Ainsworth's men.

He left Millwall at the end of that second loan spell, signing permanently on a two-and-a-half year deal.

Brown, meanwhile, has agreed a two-year deal for an undisclosed fee.

The 24-year-old has nearly 200 senior appearances under his belt and enjoyed two successful years at Cambridge.

He played for them 97 times in the last two seasons and joined the Abbey Stadium outfit after scoring in a game at St Neots in the second half of the 2016/17 campaign.

He has represented Jamaica at under-17s level.
