Gerken's Colchester Return Confirmed
Saturday, 13th Jul 2019 13:44
Colchester United have confirmed that keeper Dean Gerken is rejoining them following his release by the Blues at the end of last season.
Gerken has been training with the U’s and is expected to play in today's friendly at Welsh Premier League side Cefn Druids.
The 34-year-old came through the youth system at Colchester and made 126 senior appearances during his first spell with the North Essex club before moving on to Bristol City in 2009.
The Rochford-born keeper joined Ipswich following a trial in the summer of 2013 and went on to make 113 starts for the Blues.

Classic standing terraces, a reckless Lee Martin and of course Darren Ferguson. These are the things that first come to mind when I think of Peterborough.
Heart of Darkness by Stowmarket
Joseph Conrad’s short novel Heart of Darkness is one of my favourite books. It is based on the real events which the writer experienced first-hand while travelling up the Congo river. It asks serious questions about empire-building and racism.
