COLCHESTER United winger Ryan Gondoh says he is keen to show people what is capable of after joining FC Halifax on loan.

The 21-year-old has linked up with the National League outfit until the end of the season and made his debut for them when he came off the bench in their 2-1 defeat to Dover Athletic, last weekend.

Gondoh has found first-team opportunities at the U's hard to come by in the current campaign and has been limited to six substitute appearances.

The former Maldon and Tiptree attacker is hoping to feature in the Shaymen's remaining eight fixtures and is eager to show what he can do.

Gondoh told the Halifax Courier: "I'd say it's a step on my journey, it's an opportunity to show everyone in a good league what I can do.

"Obviously I've not been able to get a lot of games under my belt this season but that's why I'm at Halifax, to show what I can do."

"Some managers give opportunities, some don't. Some don't really have trust in young players, some do.

"I'm just unfortunate not to play, because I think I've got ability.

"Maybe I'm just not trusted yet, because I haven't performed at a high level.

"But I'm here to show that you can trust me in men's football."

Gondoh is hoping to play his part in Halifax's season finale, in the National League.

But does he see the move as an audition to Colchester head coach, John McGreal?

"Yeah and to a lot more in my career," he said.

"If I come here and do well, it'll put my name on the radar.

"Maybe I might nick a move from Colchester, you never know.

"This is a chance for me to show people what I'm capable of."

Gondoh says Colchester have an option to extend his present deal in the summer but added: "I don't really think about contracts.

"I just think of playing to the best of my ability and showing what I can do and it will all fall into place.

"Any level I play at - I want to reach the Championship - I'm not scared, I don't fear anything.

"I just go out and play. Everyone's a human being, and it's just a football match."
