Steve Lomas has thrown his hat into the ring to become the next manager of Colchester.

The former West Ham and Northern Ireland midfielder, who retired from playing last season, has applied for the role at the struggling League One club.

"I would be very interested. Colchester is a great club and I'm looking to get into that side of things," the 34-year-old told the Colchester Gazette.

"I see it as a good starting position. Colchester United has a history of giving young managers a chance, like Phil Parkinson and Geraint Williams in the past."

Us chairman Robbie Cowling was working on a short-list over the weekend and was expected to begin interviewing candidates to become Williams' successor this week.
