First in line - Sam Walker is currently Colchester United's only senior goalkeeper, following the departure of Mark Cousins to Dagenham and Redbridge.

Colchester United will now step up their search for a new goalkeeper, following Mark Cousins’ departure.

The U's now only have one senior custodian on their books, Sam Walker, following Cousins' move to League Two side Dagenham and Redbridge.

Cousins was offered the chance to stay at the Weston Homes Community Stadium but instead decided to sign for the Daggers on a two-year deal.

U's boss Joe Dunne said: “It’s important now that we can find another goalkeeper to provide some competition and push Sam on this season and we’ll be working hard to do just that.”

one goalkeeper I would love to get & I know most if not everyone will disagree is Southend United's Dan Bentley. I think he is a fantastic young keeper ok he plays for Southend but who would care about that if he won us promotion.

Be sensible thillewe, he would cost money and we don't have any. If we had got money we wouldn't be in the predicament we find ourselves. I agree with Totallyfootball , if the recruitment process wasn't serious, Col U efforts would be laughable. I suggest we will soon have to recruit from the Border League! Pull your fingers out Dunney this is no longer a joke!

Ive no doubt that Sam Walker knows an ideal goalie to act as cover.
The Goalkeeper union and hotline are very effective.

Bring back Carl Pentney - if Robbie can afford him, and if the Clarets will let him go.
