Maldon & Tiptree manager Wayne Brown has taken interim charge at Colchester United.
The U’s legend steps in at his former club following the departure of head coach Steve Ball.
Former Leicester City, Ipswich Town and Hull City defender Brown takes the reins with his Maldon & Tiptree side having had their Isthmian North season on hold in recent months.
Colchester chairman Robbie Cowling said as part of a statement today: “I have asked Wayne Brown to take over the role of first-team coach for the next run of games that see us playing every Saturday and Tuesday for the next few weeks.
“It’s a difficult run of games and I want to give Wayne every opportunity to succeed in those games. Therefore, I am not looking for any other applicants at this time.”
