Bloomfield's Colchester departure: As it happened

Bloomfield's departure from Colchester turned out to be a speedy affair with news surfacing only at the start of the week that Gareth Ainsworth was in pole position to land the newly-vacant role as QPR boss.

Ainsworth then ended his 11-year stay at Adams Park to rejoin a club where he was so duly loved during his playing days, leaving the manager post at Wycombe vacant.

This opened the door for Bloomfield to make a return to Wycombe, less than two years after he called time on his playing career with the Chairboys.

Bloomfield is a club legend in the purest sense at Wycombe, but for Colchester, the long journey to appointing a successor begins.
