Magnificent U's Crush Norwich

Magnificent U's Crush Norwich

Colchester United started their season with a fabulous 7-1 victory away to Norwich City.

First-half braces from strike pairing Kevin Lisbie and Clive Platt, a sublime David Fox free-kick gave the U's a 5-0 half-time lead. And substitutes David Perkins and Scott Vernon added insult-to-injury after Cody McDonald had pulled a goal back for the hosts.

The results sends Paul Lambert's men straight to the top of League One.
