NEWS: Orient swoop for U's striker Bonne

Striker agrees E10 switch

14 July 2017

The Club is delighted to confirm the signing of striker Macauley Bonne from Colchester United for an undisclosed fee.

The 21-year-old becomes the latest addition to arrive in E10, and has agreed a two-year deal at the Matchroom Stadium.

Bonne, who started out at Ipswich Town’s Academy and enjoyed a brief spell at Norwich City before joining Colchester at the age of 14, came through the ranks with the Essex outfit and went on to make his professional debut as a substitute at Shrewsbury Town on October 22, 2013.

Bonne then had an 18th birthday to remember four days later, as he marked his home debut with the winning goal in a 1-0 victory against Peterborough United.

Having introduced himself to the U’s fans in spectacular fashion, the forward went on to make a total of 84 appearances during his time at the Weston Homes Community Stadium.

Bonne, who has been capped by Zimbabwe at under-23 level, also needs no introduction to the Vanarama National League having enjoyed loan spells at both Lincoln City and Woking last season.
