IAN Westlake will play for Colchester United reserves tonight after being released by Wycombe Wanderers.

The midfielder was released from his Blues contract by mutual consent after barely featuring for the side since the arrival of Gary Waddock as manager.

The 27-year-old is one of four trialists being fielded by Wanderers’ old rivals in their match against Essex neighbours Southend United.

He has been training with the U’s since his release by Wycombe to keep up his fitness levels.
