CAL­LUM GETS A CHANCE WITH U’S

The Football League Paper - - LEAGUE ONE - By Ben Baker

AF­TER find­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties few and far be­tween so far this sea­son, new Colch­ester United sign­ing Cal­lum Har­riott is tar­get­ing more play­ing time.

Har­riott has been on Charl­ton’s books since the age of nine, but so far this sea­son has fea­tured just twice for the Cham­pi­onship club.

That saw the 21-yearold join Colch­ester on loan last Fri­day and the winger made his de­but 24 hours later in the 2-2 draw with Scun­thorpe.

He also fea­tured in the U’s 3-2 John­stone’s Paint Tro­phy de­feat to Northamp­ton Town and, af­ter rack­ing up three as­sists in his open­ing two runouts, Har­riott ad­mits he is en­joy­ing him­self again.

“All I want to do is play football, be­cause that’s my pas­sion,” said Har­riott, who has made 76 league and cup ap­pear­ances for Charl­ton.

“At Charl­ton, some­times I’m play­ing and some­times I’m not and noth­ing is said.

“I want to try and get back to do­ing what I do best, which is play­ing, scor­ing and as­sist­ing and hope­fully move for­ward with my ca­reer. Game time is im­por­tant.”
