Colchester United have completed the signing of goalkeeper Matt Macey on a two-year contract.

The former Arsenal, Hibernian, Luton Town and Portsmouth stopper becomes Danny Cowley’s first pre-season signing as he looks to build a squad capable of challenging for promotion next season.

An imposing figure, Macey – standing 6 ft 7 in – spoke of his delight at securing his future: “Speaking to Danny and Nicky, and others about the club, and there’s definitely a real positive vibe around the place,” he told www.cu-fc.com.

“I’m excited to be a part of that and hopefully have a successful season.

“League Two is wide open this year. You don’t have the giants that were involved last season, so that’s exciting for everyone.

“League Two typically is a league where everyone can beat everyone on their day, but I’m really excited that it seems wide open.”
