Cowling Confirms Humes Departure
Thursday, 26th Nov 2015 12:37 by Daniel
Chairman Robbie Cowling has confirmed in a press conference that Tony Humes is no longer the Colchester United manager, following rumours earlier today.
Humes' assistant, Richard Hall, and under 21 boss, John McGreal, will take caretaker charge of the first team, assisted by Wayne Brown.
A statement, later released by the club, reads as follows:
"Colchester United and manager Tony Humes have parted company.
Following Tuesday night’s game against Crewe Alexandra, Tony and Chairman Robbie Cowling met and the decision was taken that Humes and the club would go their separate ways.
Humes felt that his presence was becoming detrimental to the club and the young players that he had nurtured in his time at the U's and it would be best to remove himself from the equation.
Robbie would like to place on record his thanks to Tony for his hard work, not only over the past fourteen months but throughout the years he has been at Colchester United.
Assistant boss Richard Hall and current U21s boss John McGreal will take charge of Saturday’s game at Burton Albion, assisted by Wayne Brown.
No further comment will be made by Colchester United at this time."
