David Wright has signed a new one-year contract with Colchester United.

The experienced midfielder has put pen to paper on a new deal which will take him up to the summer of 2015.

Wright, who joined the U's from Crystal Palace in January 2013, has made nearly 50 league and cup appearances for Colchester.

And U's boss Joe Dunne believes it was vital to keep the ex-Ipswich player at the Weston Homes Community Stadium.

Dunne said: "We need some experience.

"I said at the back end of last season that keeping David would be important.

"He gives us that experience of being able to talk to young players and being able to manage things when sometimes, a manager can't.

"It was very important that we secured his services."

West Stand United says...

Dunne now has his Captain for the season.

Would prefer to see a Striker signed but if keeping David Wright helps keep us in League One then that's all I really care about.

A decent player, and brings experience to the side.
Glad he has signed or another year.
