Colchester United coach Joe Dunne has revealed it has been a “phenomenal” experience working with new manager Aidy Boothroyd.
Dunne, who has previously worked predominantly in the Club’s Youth department, has linked-up closely with Boothroyd and his assistant John Ward, having been caretaker of the U’s after Paul Lambert’s shock departure.
Speaking to the Daily Gazette he said:
“Being involved with the Manager and John (Ward) has been a fantastic experience in the short time I’ve worked with them.”
“I’m trying to gain as much knowledge as I can off them and it’s been phenomenal over the past two weeks.”
“As long as I can use whatever knowledge I get and pass it on to the players I work with, that’s the main thing.”
“Being caretaker manager has given me a completely different outlook on football. It’s great for me and I hope now that I take the opportunity I have to develop as a coach.”
