Former Leyton Orient midfielder Luke Guttridge has joined Championship club Colchester.

Guttridge who impressed during his 17 game spell at the club has decided to go back to the Championship and set himself a challenge of breaking into the U’s set-up.

It was clear at the end of the season with interest shown by a host of clubs that he would not stay at Orient, and the fact that he has in fact joined a team in a higher league echoes this.

The 25-year-old playmaker joined from Southend mid-way through last season, having a good second half to the season at Brisbane road.
