On-loan Colchester United midfielder John-Joe O'Toole extends Bristol Rovers stay
On-loan Colchester United midfielder John-Joe O'Toole has this afternoon agreed a deal to extend his stay at Bristol Rovers for a further two months.
O'Toole, who has been an instant hit with Rovers' supporters following a number of all-action displays after arriving at the turn of the year, has decided to remain at the Memorial Stadium until April 2. O'Toole will be available to play in 15 of Rovers' 19 remaining league games and is a further boost for manager John Ward in the continuing battle to beat the drop. Colchester, however, retain the opportunity of a 24-hour recall clause.
Ward said: "It is great news that John-Joe is here to stay, it is what everyone at the club wanted and the other players are all very happy.
"There is a 24-hour recall clause, but that was something that Colchester United wanted, and I fully understand that.
