David Fox has admitted that he thought that retirement from the game might have been something he would have to accept, having failed to find himself a new club until his return to The U’s.

The 30-year-old, who was released by Norwich City at the end of his contract in the summer, had a trial with Preston North End but didn’t get a contract with them but eventually he was given a short-term contract with Colchester to return to the club.

He feels like he’s ‘making up for lost time’ but has admitted that having got to September, and still not finding a new club, he feared an imposed retirement might be needed.

Fox told the Gazette: ‘I got to the point where I was thinking if it had gone on much longer, I might not have played any more football.

‘The longer it goes on, the more you start to wonder. You start to have doubts and you never know what’s round the corner.

‘I got to September and nothing was happening for me. If it had gone on for a couple of months, that might have been it.’

The three-month contract that Fox signed on October 6th will expire early in the New Year but he’s already hopeful of extending his spell with the club admitting that it’s now ‘getting to the point now where I think we’ll sit down and talk about it.’
