COLCHESTER United forward Hakeem Sandah has signed for Maldon and Tiptree on loan until the end of the season.

The 18-year-old made his Jammers debut in their 1-0 defeat at Wroxham on Saturday, in Pitching In Isthmian League division one.

Sandah, who was at Spurs academy, has been featuring for Colchester's under-21s over recent weeks, after joining them in January, following a successful trial period.

The youngster, who spent three months on trial with the U's, penned a deal that will keep him at Florence Park until the summer of 2025.

Sandah was released by Huddersfield at the end of last season having spent two years in the Terriers' youth set-up, after joining them from the Spurs academy in 2021.


The talented teenager, who started in Chelsea's academy, had a trial with Blackburn Rovers, last year.

Sandah was part of the Maldon team that lost 1-0 at Wroxham, with Joao Rangel scoring the hosts' winner in the 67th minute.

Former Colchester favourite Jamie Cureton was on the bench for the Jammers.
