Fernandes wings his way to Dartford

Colchester United winger, Michael Fernandes, has joined Vanarama National League South outfit, Dartford until January 2021.

A regular with the U’s under 23 side but yet to make his top-team debut, the move is seen by Tony Humes as an opportunity to play senior football: “It’s the next natural step for Michael in his development,” the Colchester Director of Football told www.cu-fc.co.uk.

“We have seen it in other young players, they aren’t going to be really stretched at U23s level and need to experience regular competitive football.

“He has had a good pre-season being in and around the first-team squad and hopefully this move will be beneficial for all three parties – Michael himself, us and Dartford.”
