United turn to Lambert

Published Add your comment

Former Celtic and Scotland midfielder Paul Lambert has been named the new manager of League One strugglers Colchester.

The 39-year-old replaces Geraint Williams, who left the Essex club by mutual consent last month following their disappointing start to the new season.

Lambert began his managerial career at Livingston and spent two years in charge at Wycombe before resigning at the end of last season following their elimination from the League Two play-offs.

Former Crystal Palace defender Kit Symons, who was assistant to Williams, has been in temporary charge for the last four games but the Us have yet to register a victory at their new Community Stadium.
