Dickson has impressed for the U's during pre-season following his release by Southampton this summer.

The 26-year-old told the club's official website: "t's good to be settled now and I've been happy since I first turned up here. There's a good squad here, the right philosophy in the way to play and a great work rate from all of the lads.

"The style of play is a good one to be involved in, the style suits me as a player and I've fitted in really well with the lads.

"Last year was a frustrating one for me so I am ready to get back to my top form and help Colchester push on because I think we've got a good chance with some real talented players here."

Dickson began his career with home-town club Plymouth before joining Brentford, where he played 87 times over two years.

He moved to Southampton in the summer of 2010 and helped Saints win promotion from League One in his first season with the south coast club. He has enjoyed loan spells with Yeovil, Leyton Orient and Bradford.

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

Arsenal interest in Sterling

he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
