Tom Bender (Colchester - defender) Will get senior game time for Accrington Stanley after agreeing a loan deal with the club until the end of the season. I made my debut for Colchester at 16, nearly two years ago now. Then I was a bit nave, thinking that Id be playing every week and looking back on it now I know that was never going to happen. But being involved with a first team at such a young age makes it very hard to not be involved after that. Thats why its good for me to come up here, be involved in the first team a lot more and hopefully get some more games under my belt. - Tom Bender
