Colchester United part ways with Tony Humesby Jack Kitson / 26 November 2015, 15:25Tweet
Colchester United have become the sixth League One club this season to make a change in the dugout after parting ways with manager Tony Humes by mutual consent.
- Colchester, 19th, have only won one of their last nine League One matches.
- The U's have conceded the most goals in the Football League (44).
The former Ipswich and Wrexham defender, who had been in charge of the club since September 2014, has left the U's following a run of just one win in nine third-tier games, leaving the club hovering just one point above the relegation zone in 19th.
Colchester have struggled this season, especially in defence, leaking in a staggering 44 goals in 19 matches: the most in the Football League. On Tuesday night Humes' side hurled away a 2-0 lead at home to Crewe, lsing 2-3, which proved to be the 44-year-old's final game at the helm.
Looking ahead the likes of Under-21s boss John McGreal, assistant manager Richard Hall, and the out-of-work duo of Lee Clark and Paul Dickov have emerged as the early contenders in the Next Colchester United Manager Odds.
