Luke's fond memories of Colchester

19 April 2013

Summers made league debut away to Colchester

Luke Summerfield heads for Colchester United this weekend with fond memories of making his full  Football League debut against the Essex club.
Summerfield was a youngster making his way in the game when he was handed his first start for his first club Plymouth Argyle at Colchester's old Layer Road ground - and he marked the occasion with the matchwinning goal.
"The goal I scored for Plymouth against Colchester was a good memory of my first start, especially as it was the winning goal," said Summerfield.  
"I haven't been to Colchester's new stadium so hopefully, if I get a game this weekend, it will be a nice experience, another ground to play at." 
The midfielder added it was a relief that, owing to Town's much better goal difference, they are all but  assured of their place in League One for next season following fourth-bottom Scunthorpe's midweek defeat at Bury.
Colchester, a point below Town, still have a bit of work still do to while Shrewsbury themselves still need a point to be definitely safe. 
"However the results went for us on Tuesday, this is still a big game for us and an even bigger game for them," said Summerfield. "We're going to try and get the win like we always do every game.
"We're not taking it lightly at all. We're going to go there positive and can hopefully put things right from last Saturday against Bournemouth.
"I was with Chris Skitt and Chris Weale on Tuesday night and we were following the results closely. Luckily enough, when the final whistle went at Bury we were three happy men.
"When Scunthorpe went 1-0 up, we were a bit downbeat, but as soon as the final whistle went we were happy.
"Last Saturday wasn't the best of days for us. We got outplayed by a better team at the end of the day to put it bluntly.
"Tuesday then came around and helped us out but we've got three games left and we're hopefully going to get nine points."
