|Courtney Senior signs |
at 18:06 18 Apr 2018
Colchester United are delighted to confirm that flying winger Courtney Senior has signed a new contract with the club.
The 20-year-old has made a big impression since making his first team debut in August, and has scored three goals so far for John McGreal's side.
The tricky wide man has now signed a new two year deal to extend his stay with the club.
Got plenty of natural ability, but now has two more years to nurture it into something more sudstainable. More improvement in reading situations and toughen up physically.
at 16:48 13 Apr 2018
Today’s official club statement added: ‘He (Kpekawa) has only featured twice since the turn of the year and will now leave the club to seek regular first team football elsewhere.
‘We wish Cole well with the next stage of his career.’
A great fit for the club was the official statement, pre- season . The start of many more ?

|Exciting night out on the Town ! |
at 06:32 14 Mar 2018
It began with regular shouts of ‘hoof’, followed by groans at every mis-placed pass (that was at 1-0). The second goal lifted the lid on a boiling pot and vociferous chants of ‘Mick McCarthy, get out of our club’ came from a vocal number primarily in the North Stand.
A cacophony of boos greeted the half-time whistle. Then, after the third goal, it got worse. Ironic cheers greeted Town passes, shots and the announcement of the attendance.
Officially logged at 13,031 (with 290 away fans) this was the third time in a matter of weeks that Portman Road has seen its lowest league attendance in almost 20 years.

|Rebrand Club Crest. |
at 17:59 24 Jan 2018
Looks like LB's favorites have had a club crest rebrand . Thought's anyone on a updated club badge or back to tradition with the previous borough badge and do you ask for refund for that tattoo !

Probally the most ambitious signing by the U's since Teddy . Well we do require some experience up front ....
Alas some twenty year old from the smoke .
at 17:28 18 Jan 2018
The club have a announced that Brandan Hanlan has returned to his parent club Charlton . The goal machine scored two goals during his spell when released from the subs bench.
Now that we have signed our own jam net buster he is become surplus to requirements .

|Young U's progress.|
at 21:37 16 Jan 2018
Young U's progress to the fifth round of Youth Cup with a two nil win over MK Dons . A early goal settled the U's down after good work by the U's skipper holding the ball up and Cornish drilling the ball hone inside the box after five minutes.
Fifteen minutes in the second half U's skipper Jones stabs home inside the box at the near post to give the U's a two goal advantage . A fine save from the U's keeper near the end deny MK Dons getting back in the tie .
Both sides equipped themselves well in the cold windy conditions, in a entertaining encounter, with a special mention to the ref who played advantage whenever possible which kept the game flowing throughout.
Another home tie awaits .

Sad news regarding his departure . A trailblazer for many to follow.
Remember him playing at Layer Road one evening when Ron Atkinson brought a West Brom side down for a testimonial fixture .

Although made his name has a Tractorboy, did play for the U's thereafter. Think he also opened the bowling for Col & EE . A true allround sportsman .

|Issue 57 - Backpass Magazine |
at 17:19 21 Dec 2017
Have just received the latest edition of retro football magazine Backpass - No 57 . Peter Marinello pictured on front cover in his festive Arsenal kit complete with long hair . But more importantly a must read for all U's fans due to Rob Hadgraft's double page article of the U's in the seventies .
Usually found in WH Smith - Treat yourselves it's Christmas !!
|Drop the stars . |
at 08:46 17 Dec 2017
Time to drop the stars , no not the players , but the stars now placed above club badges for the winning of major trophies . Notice one PL club with some that even I cannot remember them winning, makes one wonder that a time limit should be placed on being able to qualify .

Colchester Youths claim a 2-0 victory over their Crewe counterparts in the FA Youth cup last night at a chilly WHCS . U's started slowly , has in previous rounds, and a glaring miss from the Crewe centre half when he glanced a header wide after ten minutes should had seen the U 's behind . In a hard fought encounter Sims opened the U's scoring with a exquisite shot from the edge of the box into the left hand corner ten minutes before half time .
Crewe did find the net in the second period, although the scorer was judged off side by the lines person , after a cross cum shot had hit the back post . Colchester defended stoutly and got their rewards when a lose ball was picked up by Chilvers in midfield who ran into the box and slotted under the keeper with five minutes to go .
A good team display throughout, a classic display of taking your chances . Need to improve in the first quarter though has like previous rounds they can / could be chasing a game from the start .
Fourth round beckons with a home tie against the MK Franchise in January .

|Football Coins / Stickers |
at 08:57 3 Dec 2017
Will Esso release a World Cup coin collection ?
If you collected football stickers who was the player that seemed was never available, then had to negotiate a swop to obtain ?

Seems the club, made a good impression on hosting this encounter last night . On the pitch the England women showed how a professional side should beat there amateur opponents comfortably over ninety minutes .
However the decibel levels of the tannoy at half time made listening to any comments made by the television summarises particularly difficult .
|Question Time |
at 13:35 25 Nov 2017
BBC Question Time was live from the town last Thursday . Disappointed that no locals representives were on the panel , so the question could not be asked .
How many players can we get in the hole ?
