A MUST FOR EVERY U'S FAN THIS VALENTINES DAY AND BEYOND.....(currently only a few left at the Red Lion Bookshop)

The book details the events, matches and players that have shaped the history of Colchester United in the eighty years since it was formed in 1937.

It has been a labour of love: eight years of research, days spent at the library in Colchester and five lever arch folders full of documents and press reports.

There are details of great matches against Leeds, Huddersfield and Fulham to nightmares at Dover, Leatherhead and Bedlington; the great players, the good and the downright terrible; from wartime rescues in the Bay of Biscay, to tragedies at Layer Road; from the Watney Cup victory at West Brom to getting relegated out of the Football League and subsequent return.

Written in diary form, there are over eight hundred entries contained within the book and it is sure to jog the memory of any Colchester United fan.

Priced at £12 it is an ideal (late) Christmas present! It can be purchased online at www.coludata.co.uk or in Colchester High Street at Red Lion Bookshop.


Colchester United's Football in the Community project has launched a new scheme for the club's older supporters and senior citizens from across the local area.

The newly launched Senior U's project will get underway from Wednesday 8th November, based predominantly at the Shrub End Community Sports Centre.

The group will meet twice a month and there will be a range of great trips taking place through the year, along with guest speakers and access to key local support and services.

Membership of Senior U's is just £24 a year and November's sessions will be FREE!

For more details, please contact Katie Cook on 01206 755160 or by e-mail on katie.cook@colchesterunited.net.


Our new CUSA badge commemorating the U's 80th birthday is now on sale at £3.50, and for those fans who like to collect the year bars, the latest for your collection is also available at £3

If you would like to have one sent out or reserved for you, please get in touch at badges@cusa.co.uk
