Matthew Weaire: Colchester United sign ex-Brighton & Hove Albion defender
Colchester United have signed defender Matthew Weaire on a two-year deal following the expiry of his scholarship contract at Brighton & Hove Albion.
Weaire, a Denmark youth international, played 21 games in the U18 Premier League last season.
The 17-year-old also had a loan spell at Gosport Borough in the Southern League Premier South, and departs along with Brentford-bound Julien Carre.
"They worked incredibly hard," Albion under-18 coach Mark Beard said.
"On behalf of everyone at the club, I would like to wish Julien and Matthew all the very best for the future."
