Needham Market FC are delighted to announce a new arrival to the club.

Needham Market FC are delighted to announce the Loan Signing of Colchester United Attacking Player Tariq Issa.

Forward Issa joined the Colchester United Academy at the age of 12 from Trinity Football Club in Southend-on-Sea. He broke into Colchester's U18 Side while still an U16 player and was the first Colchester Academy player to come through the educational system associated with Thurstable School in Tiptree. He signed a four year contract with the club in July 2015 before agreeing a new four year deal in July 2016.

Issa made his first team debut in the EFL Trophy on 4 October 2016, replacing Dion Sembie-Ferris at half time in Colchester's 2–1 defeat to Southampton U23. He made his English Football League debut on 19 August 2017 as a substitute for Drey Wright in Colchester's 3–0 defeat against Luton Town.

Needham Market FC Manager Richard Wilkins was delighted with the Loan Signing as he gives the team plenty of options in attacking positions and is looking forward to working with him and thanked Tony Humes for agreeing the deal.

Club Secretary Mark Easlea would also like to put on record thanks to Colchester United's Secretary Nancy Hayes for the swift nature of dealing with the paperwork.

Subject to all paperwork being confirmed Tariq will go straight into the squad for the Away trip to Alvechurch this Saturday.

On behalf of everyone at NMFC we welcome Tariq to the club and wish him well whilst on loan.
