U's Edge Essex Battle

24 September 2012

...and raise plenty of funds for charity too.

Colchester United's supporters came out on top in the battle of the top two Essex teams on Sunday afternoon.

The match between Southend and the U's was to raise money for the Forget Me Not suite at Basildon Hospital, who look after parents who have recently lost a child.

The U's ran out 3-0 winners on a wet and windy day, as a good natured but competitive game saw them grab the One Team In Essex trophy.

With a collection and raffle on the day, the U's and Southend fans raised nearly £400.

There's already talk of a rematch next year, so watch this space if you want to get involved!
