A quartet of youngsters from Colchester United have put pen to paper on new contracts.

And pacy winger Drey Wright has also been offered a two-year deal by the U’s.

Bradley Hamilton, who made his senior debut for Colchester last month, has signed a new one-year deal.

In addition, Tosin Olufemi, goalkeeper Shaun Phillips and Ryan Melaugh have all inked new two-year contracts.

They follow hot on the heels of fellow youth-team players Freddie Ladapo and Alex Gilbey, who signed professional terms at Colchester last month.

Meanwhile, Wright, who has only just completed his first-year apprenticeship, has also been offered a new contract.
