Colchester manager, Joe Dunne has made quick progress in shaping his new squad with the signatures of two Arsenal players. Gunners’ duo Craig Eastmond and Sanchez Watt have both signed on for Colchester on a three-month loan deal. Dunne was only appointed manager for Colchester on Thursday morning but has already installed three new faces into the club in his first day in charge.
Midfielder Eastmond and striker Watt, both 21, have each enjoyed first-team action for the Gunners and also benefited from loan spells away from the Emirates and will be eager to kick start their careers with a successful loan spell with the U’s.
Speaking to Colchester’s official website, Eastmond said, “The first thing I heard about the move was through my agent and he said Colchester United were one of a few clubs interested. I just want to play games so I said yes to it and I’m looking forward to the new challenge.”
“It felt good to be training here and the lads made me feel relaxed and welcome. It looks like the manager plays the same formation as I’m used to so it should be good for me,’ Watt added. “I want to fight for my position in the team, keep my place if I get it and do well for the club and for myself. Hopefully, we can play well, pass the ball around, score some goals and push up the table.’
