The Football League Paper - - INSIDE -

MA­CAULEY Bonne has vowed to live up to his star billing af­ter sign­ing a con­tract ex­ten­sion to stay with Colch­ester United un­til 2017.

The 19-year-old Zim­bab­wean for­ward has been touted as one of the bright­est tal­ents to come out of the U’s academy since mov­ing from Nor­wich City in 2009.

And a string of im­pres­sive per­for­mances this term were capped off with his first se­nior goal in the shock 3-2 victory against League One table­top­pers Bris­tol City last week­end.

Bonne said :“I am re­ally pleased to have signed my new con­tract.

“It has been a big year for me since I broke into the first team.

“I am hop­ing to earn a place on a more regular ba­sis in the next cou­ple of years and to keep on scor­ing goals for the team.”

GOAL: Ma­cauley Bonne
