One to watch 

Attacking midfielder, Jevani Brown

The 26 year old started his senior career with Peterborough United back in 2013 before having many stints in non league football with seven different clubs.

It wasn’t until 2016 when Brown caught the eye of EFL teams once again as he scored an impressive 19 goals in 19 games for St. Neots Town. This earned him a move to Cambridge United where he would play 84 times for The Abbey side.

In the summer of 2019, Colchester United signed the exciting midfielder for an undisclosed fee. 

So far this season he has bagged 11 goals for the Essex side with nine of those coming in the space of just five games during October and November.
