Boothroyd joins Colchester

Former Watford boss Adrian Boothroyd has been named the new manager of League One side Colchester.

The 38-year-old, who has been out of management since leaving Vicarage Road last November, replaces Paul Lambert after he quit to take over at Norwich last month.

Boothroyd led the Hornets to the Premier League in 2006, before they were relegated after one season in the top flight.

He also took them to the 2007 FA Cup semi-finals, but left by mutual consent after a poor start to the last Championship campaign.
