Chelmsford City Football Club is delighted to announce that Defender, Frankie Terry, has re-joined the club on Loan from Colchester United
Terry, 19, has come through the Academy at Colchester United and experienced a successful spell on loan with the Clarets last Season where he won the Supporters Young Player of the Year award and has now re-joined the club where he scored his first senior goal last season making 26 appearances in all competitions. Frankie had involvement in the Colchester United first team towards the end of last season as well as during the U’s 23/24 Pre-Season campaign.
Manager Robbie Simpson spoke on Frankie Terry re-joining on loan “It’s great to get Frankie back, we had a lot of great loan success stories last year and he was definitely one of them. He won our Supporters Young Player of the Year, fully and deservedly so in my opinion. He came to us effectively as a Youth Team player and left us as someone who can handle the robustness of Men’s football week in, week out. His game has just developed so much and we were just so pleased with the loan from every angle and so were Colchester.”
“Going into this Pre-Season if Frankie wasn’t to be with Colchester’s first team then we’d have always loved for him to come back. He was always keen to come back and Colchester wanted him to come back, it’s taken probably a little longer than we expected once we knew he wasn’t going to be involve in Colchester’s First Team towards the back end of Pre-Season. But the deal’s done now and he adds to our squad, if you look at our defence from last year we had the second best defensive record in the league. We’ve only lost Adebola now from that unit in terms of a defender plus a change of Goalkeeper. We’ve brough in Luke Jenkins as Ade’s replacement. We’re looking strong again in that area and we are delighted that Frankie is back”
