Promising U’s duo pen first pro deals

Colchester United youngsters, Samson Tovide and Benny Bioletti have both signed their first professional deals with the North Essex club.

Tovide has already made eleven top-team appearances for the Sky Bet League Two club after making his debut as a sixteen-year-old in 2020. “I’m very happy – I’ve worked hard coming from Leyton Orient, and I’ve made it into the first team, and now I can’t wait to get started,” he told

“I want to get as many games as possible, and as soon as the time comes I need to take my chance.”

Meanwhile, Bioletti enthused: “I’m over the moon, coming from Faversham Town to a professional club, it’s a big step, but I think I’m ready for it.

“I made it into the first team at Faversham when I was fifteen, so from then I felt I wanted to take it more seriously, and it has panned out as I wanted it to.”
