NEW sign­ing Dar­ren Am­brose ad­mits go­ing from turn­ing out against Colch­ester, to pulling on the U’s jersey in un­der a month has been a strange ex­pe­ri­ence.

The ex­pe­ri­enced for­mer New­cas­tle and Crys­tal Palace midfielder, 31, signed on Thurs­day hav­ing been re­leased from Ip­swich Town.

Am­brose had played for Town in their 3-2 de­feat at Colch­ester in a pre-sea­son friendly only last month.

“It’s been a sharp turn­around,” he said.“I’m look­ing for­ward to it and pleased it’s over the line. I feel as though I’m join­ing a club on the up.

“The fa­cil­i­ties are fan­tas­tic and it’s a young, vi­brant team.”
