Membership News

With everybody worried about the cost of living rises, some good news, for the umpteenth year, membership fees are remaining the same !

Membership forms are now available to download from www.cusa.co.uk and can be scanned back, posted or handed in at the CUSA stand on Sunday July 17th when the Open Day takes place at the stadium.

We will also be taking coach bookings for the first four away league games, the new CUSA badge will be available to purchase as will the year bars for 2022-23. These are priced at £3-50 each and if required, they can be posted out for an additional £1-05 for one or both items. 

Also available will be a range of Colchester home and away programmes, team sheets, tickets and various other items, all at bargain prices. The funds raised from sales of the above, are used to subsidise away travel. 

As  an added incentive to take out membership, all those submitting a form from July 1st to close of the Open Day on July 17th, will be entered into a Prize Draw. The first name drawn will receive a U’s squad signed shirt and the second will receive a U’s squad signed programme. The winners will be notified by the end of July.

As a Supporters’ Association, we still retain membership of the national body, the Football Supporters’ Association (FSA). Our membership allows us access to various groups within the FSA, that can help us to make CUSA a better association for you the members. 

We look forward to seeing you over the course of the season.

And it all starts with Northampton....

On our travel page, you will find details for our coach service to the first 4 away games starting with Northampton Town on 30 July. After which, we rack up the miles with some meaty long journeys to Stockport, Tranmere and Barrow

 

The Colchester United Open Day is back!

Colchester United Football Club are delighted to announce the return of their Annual Open Day on Sunday the 17th of July 2022 11am to 4pm

We are making plans to be there. Got to find our gazebo first and 4 members to hold it down to stop it flying away!

CUSA Player of the Season 2021-2022

Congratulations to Shamal George, the CUSA Player of the Season, and Brendan Wiredu, the CUSA Away Player of the Season for 2021-2022

Thank you to everyone who voted and thank you to our special guests, Alison Heaps and Richard Anderson, who made the presentations on our behalf in memory of the Mike and Jackie, who were sadly lost to the CUSA and Colchester United in the last year

A Thank You from the CUSA Chairman...

My appreciation goes out to all of you for your support this season, and in particular when I have seen so many of you travelling around the country to get behind the team. It is a colossal effort especially when you consider the time and money it all takes. Thanks to all of our 350+ CUSA members. It is very much appreciated. To those who have travelled with us on the coaches, for many, many seasons, those days out with you all have been the highlight of my week. You have all been really great company.

Whilst on the subject of gratitude, thank you to John and Roman Coaches for looking after us this season. We have very much enjoyed the relationship and of course for letting us have such terrific drivers such as Peter, Andy, Steve and others.

Thanks too to all of the CUSA FC boys who have been plying their trade in the Colchester Sunday League this season. They have had a decent season and done well. They are a good bunch, but not adverse to welcoming fresh faces who fancy Sunday morning footy, so if that is you, please get in touch.

And to finish the end of season thanks and praise, please let me extend it to Chris Saward in the U’s ticket office for all of his help during the season and to David Gregory and Tim Waddington for their help and for letting us take up a page in the match day programme. Hoping that we can all do more together for the fans next season

And so, as I take time to remember some wonderful and lovely U’s supporters and friends who have sadly been taken from us this season, on behalf of the CUSA Committee, who have worked really hard this season, I would like to wish you all a good off season, whilst looking forward to seeing you all (and more) back here again when it all starts again
