The move to Cambridge is Coulson’s second loan move of the campaign with the left-sided player having spent the opening months of the season with St Mirren.

Coulson made 11 appearances for the SPL club and scored his first-ever career goal in a 6-0 League Cup win against Dumbarton in July.

The 20-year-old has been with Boro’s Academy since the age of 13 and he was part of the double-winning U18 squad in 2014/15.
