“ It’s been a pleasure having Jake with us both on and off the field. He’s done very well for us and he is
a fantastic character too. I wish him all the very best in the next stage of his development.
I would personally like to thank Richard Hall the Colchester Utd loans manager for all his efforts and hard work whilst we have had Jake with us.”
