Loudest and Proudest!

Loudest and Proudest!

Colchester Uniteds fans have won the accolade of coming first in the Real Football Roar competition, a competition held by the Football league in the first month of the new season.

U's Manager Geriant Williams said,' 'The players always appreciate it when the fans open their lungs to back the team and it's great that they've proved they are the noisiest around.'

Adding,'We know how fervent the fans are and the noise they made against Derby County certainly helped us on our way to our first win of the season.'

Throughout the first month of the season journalists from PA Sport have been measuring noise levels at League games using sound meters provided by Cirrus Research - a leading developer and producer of noise measurement instrumentation.

Real Football Roar Top Ten

Colchester United (Coca-Cola Championship)

Norwich City (Coca-Cola Championship)

Carlisle United (Coca-Cola League 1)

Crewe Alexandra (Coca-Cola League 1)

Bristol Rovers (Coca-Cola League 2)

Southend United (Coca-Cola Championship)

Rochdale (Coca-Cola League 2)

Southampton (Coca-Cola Championship)

Stockport County (Coca-Cola League 2)

0 Plymouth Argyle (Coca-Cola Championship)

The crowd noise of 128.3 decibels made by the crowd as the players took to the pitch for the Coca-Cola Championship match between Colchester United and Derby County at Layer Road on August 26th can be compared to the following examples of typical decibel readings for various sounds:

150 Jet engine at 30m

40 Low Calibre Rifle being fired at 1m

30 Civil defence siren at 33.3m

20 Train horn at 1m

10 Chainsaw at 1m

00 Jackhammer at 2m

0 Heavy truck at 1m

0 Vacuum cleaner at 1m

Vital Colchester Thought for the Day:

We may be small in number but we are big in voice and our support is massive in passion!

Up the U's
