Gilbey insists he is still happy with U’s
9:00pm Thursday 10th October 2013 in Sport
ALEX Gilbey has insisted he is happy at Colchester United – despite his decision to turn down a new contract.
The former Frinton and Walton youth footballer scooped the man-of-the-match award in the U’s 3-0 defeat against Wolves on Saturday and has won plaudits for his recent performances.
Gilbey, whose current deal expires next summer, has started Colchester’s last five games in League One, playing in a variety of midfield positions.
And despite having initially rejected the chance to commit his future to the U’s, the former Newport County loanee stressed he wants to stay and play for manager Joe Dunne.
Gilbey, 18, said: “I’m really happy to be here and playing under the gaffer.
“I leave any speculation to other people but at the end of the day, I want to play for this club and under the gaffer."
