Matt Bloomfield left for Wycombe last week

Colchester United have appointed Ben Garner as their new head coach.

The 42-year-old, who led Swindon to the play-offs last season and was sacked by League One Charlton Athletic earlier this season, takes over from Matt Bloomfield. Bloomfield left for Wycombe last week shortly before Colchester were beaten 1-0 by Northampton.

Garner is set to observe Saturday's game against Bradford City, which will be overseen by caretaker manager Ross Embleton, before taking training for the first time early next week.
