Club Up For Another Top Award

Club Up For Another Top Award

Community Club of the Year is Colchester United`s latest nomination in the annual Football League Awards 2008/9, which also rates the country`s top players.

The nomination marks the third-year running that the Essex club have been nominated for an award, following first place for Best Matchday Programme in 2005/6.

United were also highly commended during last year's awards in the Sports Alliance Family Club of the Year category.

Vital Colchester has a proud association with the club itself, having two active columnists in the matchday magazine, our very own C02 and Matt_Us, both contrinuting to the suplement on a regular basis.

The U's Review supplement recently won more acclaim, this time from programme collectors' bible, Programme Monthly. They called the publication: "...one of the best programmes in the country, never mind League One. Superb value for money and of the longest, and best reads, in the country this season. A certain contender for honours."

This year, Colchester are up against four other clubs for the Community Club award, which in the League One category includes Brighton & Hove Albion, Southend United and Leyton Orient.

The awards, which will also rant the top 50 best players of 2008 outside the Premier League, take place on March 29

Match Day Officials v Swindon

The Football League have now announced the Match Day officials that will take charge of the game against Swindon Town this weekend.

Unhappy Keeper Back With Norwich

Kean had come in on a 28-day from Norwich but his time at the Weston Homes Community Stadium is over with Keen confirming he was 'unhappy with a couple of things.'

Panicking? Not Yet!

Before the Southend game Keen insisted he wasn't panicking, despite the U's being seven-points adrift of safety. Three-goals in the final 10-minutes lead to another defeat of course.
