West Ham's Dan Potts congratulates former talent George Moncur after he scores survival goal

West Ham Upton Park

The talented midfielder scored the winning goal for Colchester United v Preston North End.

It has certainly been an exciting day in League One, as the third tier of English football came to an end for another season.

There were plenty of twists and turns on the final day of the season. MK Dons for instance pipped Preston North End to Championship promotion, while there was also plenty of drama at the other side of the table.

In the end it was Leyton Orient, Crawley Town, Notts County that joined Yeovil Town in being relegated to League Two - with Colchester United and Crewe Alexandra surviving.

The Essex club's survival was down to a late goal from a former West Ham talent.

George Moncur, son of the West Ham cult hero John Moncur, scored in the 82nd minute of the game to help The U's to survival.

Moncur first arrived at Colchester on loan from West Ham last summer and made the deal permanent in January. He has now certainly proven himself to be a big asset to his new club.

It was a fact noticed by a former West Ham team-mate.

Dan Potts, who has spent time out on loan at Colchester United himself back in 2012, sent out this Tweet earlier today.

Colchester will now hope Moncur can help them push on next term.
