Exclusive: Rivals Fanzine Closes - Join Vital U`s!

A competing fanzine, at, has closed. Vital Colchester would like to appeal to all members and any former editor of that site to join us instead!

This is a potential new home for anybody who is interested in writing, or talking about, Colchester United.

The Editor

My name is Matt and I'm the site editor of Vital Colchester.

I am a young writer with a tremendous passion and enthusiasm for Colchester United and for writing and I hope this is reflected in my work. I met Teddy Sheringham representing this website.
