Three Colchester Apprentices Sign Pro Contracts

Colchester United have handed out professional deals to three apprentices, with Noah Chilvers, Callum Jones and Ollie Sims all putting pen to paper, while Dean Ager has also been offered a contract.

Chilvers is the most high-profile player of the group to commit his future to the U’s having been involved in the first-team for two Sky Bet League Two games, both resulting in 3-0 victories over Newport County and Lincoln City.

Tony Humes, Director of Football, told the club website: “These lads have shown their talent in the Under-23s over the past couple of years and certainly have the potential to become first-team players.

“Noah has already had a taste of things with the squad and with continued hard work, the others should be joining him in being in and around the first-team squad.

“It will be a big pre-season for all of them, but we have faith in them and that’s why we were happy to offer them new contracts at the club.”
