Manager – John McGreal
A powerful defender in his playing days, McGreal came through the ranks at Tranmere before earning a big-money move to Ipswich Town, helping the Suffolk club win promotion to the Premier League. He finished his playing career at Burnley and moved into management with Colchester in 2016.

Pre-Match View
“It gives us a little bit of competition in that area. I'd rather have that problem though and when you have quality players like that at your disposal, you have good decisions to make.” John McGreal, speaking to the Colchester website on the return to fitness of full-back Ryan Jackson ahead of their Argyle visit.
