League One: Colchester United confirm appointment of former Reading coach Kevin Keen
League One side Colchester United have confirmed the appointment of Kevin Keen as their new manager.
Keen, who watched from the stands for the U’s 3-1 defeat against Rochdale at the weekend, spent Monday morning at the U's training ground as he begins preparations for his first game in charge.
The 48-year-old arrives at the Weston Homes Community Stadium having most recently been assistant manager to Steve Clarke at Reading, having had coaching spells at West Ham and Liverpool.
He also coached at West Brom under Clarke, and followed him to Reading, departing the Royals when Clarke was sacked earlier this month.
The U's U21s manager David Wright will step up to the senior side to work alongside Keen as his assistant manager.
