Cambridge United part company with Head Coach Colin Calderwood.

Graham Daniels Director of Football commented: “We would like to thank Colin for everything he has done for the Club. He came in last Christmas and played a big part in securing our League Two status in what was a difficult season. We had all hoped that the Club would be able to push on under his leadership but after a reasonable start to the season everyone at the Club recognises that both results and performances have not been good enough in recent weeks. We had all hoped that this poor run could be turned round but unfortunately that hasn’t happened. We have great respect for Colin Calderwood and wish him well for the future.”

Paul Barry, Owner of Cambridge United added: “We have agreed with Colin that the time is right for him to leave the Club. I would like to put on record our respect for him as a Head Coach and a person. He has represented Cambridge United with honesty and integrity throughout his time with us and he leaves with our very best wishes.”

Mark Bonner will take temporary charge of the first team and the search for a permanent successor is already underway.
