Former Blues Midfielder Huws Joins Colchester
Saturday, 15th Jan 2022 14:27

Former Blues midfielder Emyr Huws has joined Colchester United on a short-term deal until the end of the season.

The Wales international had been without a club since being released by Town at the end of last season, although spent time on trial with Doncaster Rovers in the summer.

The 28-year-old joined the Blues initially on loan from Cardiff in January 2017 and impressed in the remaining months of that season, most famously scoring the third goal in the 3-1 win over Newcastle at Portman Road.

Huws joined on a permanent basis that summer on a free transfer but injury limited his involvement in the following campaigns.

Overall, the former Manchester City youngster made 43 starts and 12 sub appearances, scoring five goals.

Huws, who could make his debut in today’s home match against Barrow having been named on the bench, becomes the ninth former Blues player - plus loanee Armando Dobra - in the Colchester squad.

Smithy; I understand that Kenlock is out of contract in the summer, so it is quite possible that he will end up with them as well!

Nydam next

Really think we should keep Kenlock! With the right coaching I feel he could be a real asset for us

I think the fact that they have almost an entire team of Ex Ipswich 2020 at Colchester - and having s very poor season at that level, proves just hoe much a clear out was necessary at Portman Road.
Thank You Paul Cook !! - you got that right.

I saw Romesh Ranganthan this week and without spoiling the show if you're going to see him, he talked about how sometimes you want something to be but really you know it isn't going to be. When Huwys was with us I really wanted him to succeed but it became clear that his injuries robbed him of pace and sharpness that was key to his game. I had to accept that as much as I wanted it, it wasn't to be.

Wishing Emyr every success at Colchester and for the rest of his career. At 28, he should not be done yet.

God help them

What happened to Nydam, surely he still has the ability to succeed if his body can stand up to it.

Blimey the future looks bleak for Colchester hope they've got a good physio.

Good luck Emyr!
