Ahead of the FA Cup first round this weekend Colchester have been handed a boost that the parent clubs of three of their loan players have granted them permission to feature.

Joe Dunne, as you'd expect, has expressed his delight at the news and thanks the parent clubs of these involved for the permission to do so.
