Ndaba Joins Cotter at Chelmsford
Friday, 1st Nov 2019 16:50

Young Blues defender Corrie Ndaba has joined Chelmsford City on a one-month loan, joining fellow Irishman Barry Cotter at the Essex side.

Ndaba, 19, has been on the Town first-team bench on four occasions but so far without being handed his debut, despite manager Paul Lambert having pencilled him in for a senior bow in the dead fixtures towards the end of last season.

Right-back Cotter, 20, extended his loan with the Vanarama National League South side until December 3rd earlier this week having made three appearances having joined them just over a month ago.

Good luck to the lad, hope he enjoys the experience and the step-up.

Bit of a surprise this one on the verge of first team one minute on loan to Chelmsford the next wouldn't call this a step up. Seen him play a number of times this season and gone backwards from last season dont think Lambert rates him much.

I agree that he seems to have gone backwards as he was looking so promising the early part of last year. I hope this is just a loss of confidence and that a loan and some fresh surroundings will help him get back on track, and not a situation where he has been rattled by not given a chance in which case PL will see this as an attitude problem. PL was very critical of him in the U23 play off semifinal against Birmingham at Portman Road at the end of last season at the time everyone thought he was ready to make his first team debut. This may have played a part in knocking his confidence thinking he had nearly arrived but then was some way off.

I understand the lad was originally a midfielder and converted to centre half, maybe a change back to a holding midfielder may give his career a versatility boost.

I have seen him play several times and I like the lad and do hope he can pick up and suceed.
