A Different Welcome

U's to hold unique Guard of Honour.

Colchester United will hold a unique Guard of Honour for Tuesday night's game against Portsmouth.

Pompey come to town for the first home game of what will be the U's 75th anniversary season and the fifth at the Weston Homes Community Stadium.

To celebrate our anniversary year, our guard of honour will involve some of our longest standing fans as we acknowledge their support over the years.

The club wrote to invite all Season Ticket holders who were either already 75 years old or were due to turn 75 during the course of the season.

We've had fourteen of them agree to be involved in the Guard of Honour, which means that the cumulative years of the guard will be over 1,000 years!

The Season Ticket holders will also be joined by some young football fans, with a team from Canada also helping them to welcome the teams out onto the pitch at the start of the game.

Tickets have been selling well in the past 24 hours, so be sure to buy your ticket by calling 0845 437 9089 today!
