Forward will spend one month with The U's

ALBION youngster Kemar Roofe has joined Colchester United on loan until December 1st.

The forward who is yet to make his senior debut for Albion, has been given permission by his parent club to play for the League One side in the FA Cup.

The 21-year-old has enjoyed previous loan spells at Northampton Town and Cheltenham Town, and is looking forward to gaining more experience at the Weston Homes Community stadium.

“I am really looking forward to playing for Colchester United,” said Roofe.

“The move is another chance for me to show the gaffer, the club and everyone else what I am about and also what I can offer.

“I’m looking forward to playing in front of a crowd and also trying to win football matches with Colchester.

“There is no better feeling in football than getting three points.

“I’ve already had good experiences out on loan at Northampton and Cheltenham, and on both occasions I have improved as a player and as a person.
