Classified Results Nil
at 10:41 11 Aug 2022

BBC five live have dropped the classified results on Saturday afternoon at 17-00 hrs because five minutes is to long and need to concentrate on the 17-30 kick off match .

So, a British tradition has fallen foul of the modern age, for all fans leaving grounds, households wondering how their teams and rivals got on, or wondering where teams were and schoolboys who like me walked home from the match with the radio ….

Early Kick Off’s
at 17:08 2 Aug 2022

Notice that Isthmian League clubs have been informed that they can change to earlier kick off times due to the energy crisis, on condition that both sides are in agreement.
This idea was actioned in the 70’s during the fuel crises in the Football League, with several home games moved to one o clock kick off’s.
So would not be surprised if the EFL brings this into action, for clubs to introduce if games are not being televised live on Saturday afternoons during the winter months.
Wonder how much it cost to switch on floodlights for a game ?

Stripes are back - well almost.
at 08:15 17 Jul 2022

Colchester United supporters will be able to get their first glimpse of the new kits on Sunday.
For the first time since 2019, the U's are holding its annual Open Day, and as Robbie Cowling announced earlier this year, the stripes are back.
Both the home and away shirts will be launched at the Open Day and fans will be able to see the new designs for the first time in the Club Shop.

However, due to delivery delays beyond our control, we have been informed that stock will not be with us in time for the Open Day.

Sadly somebody who attended the U’s Legends match today informed me that they held a minute’s silence for Paul Dyer, who has passed away .
A busy midfielder in the 70’s and loyal servant on and off the field for the club and he was also publican at the The Lamb, in the High Street .

Frank Ruggles B.E.M.

Notice that Frank Ruggles recently passed away, never played a game for the U’s, but did get a game he attended on the back page of all Sundays .
Speaking to a guy who worked with him who said he raised a large amount of money for local charities.

U23 at Community Stadium.
at 18:41 5 Apr 2022

Season Ticket Holders and Multi-Match Permit Holders are free - you will need to buy a ticket to the game, and then receive a discount so as to make a ticket in their basket free of charge, as long as the ticket is of the same type as their permit.

Surely there is a better way to gain access to such matches for STH and MMPH holders ?
Perhaps the ticket office/ club could re-assess process from free ,purchase, reimburse scenario.

22022022 . The same upside down ( digital) and back to front .

Just a two nil victory tonight will do. Two goals scored by Welsh-Hayes (squad No2 ) or Junior ( squad no22), second and twenty second minutes in front of 2,222.
Sorted .

Noted that Crystal Palace were wearing black armbands, for the passing of former player Paul Hinshelwood . Signed by Mike Walker, a solid right back for the U’s which reached the Div Four play offs in the eighties.
Condolences to his family.
