Colchester United have secured the services of winger Ashley Vincent with a three-year contract for an undisclosed fee.

The 24-year-old played six games while on loan from Cheltenham last season, scoring one goal.

He told BBC Essex: "I liked what I saw last season and everything the manager does is geared towards winning.

Goalkeeper Mark Cousins, 22, has signed a new two-year contract after playing 13 games for Colchester last season.

"It was a good opportunity for me to commit for another two years," Cousins told the club website.

"Last season showed the manager has faith in me and I hope to get more games under my belt next season," he said.

The duo are manager Paul Lambert's first transactions since the season ended.

Vincent added: "The club are ambitious and I want to play at the highest possible.

"Colchester have only been out of the Championship for a year and I feel I have a good chance of getting up there with this club."
