U's On The Airwaves

18 July 2013

All games to be broadcast in 2013/14.

BBC Essex Managing Editor Gerald Main said: "It’s great news for BBC Essex and for U’s and Blues fans. Home and away, wherever the match, whatever the day, we’ll be there. If you can’t get to the match it’s the next best thing.

BBC Essex will also be broadcasting all of Southend United's fixtures and they're eagerly awaiting the big kick-off on August 3rd.

"It promises to be an exciting season with the work that Joe has done in the transfer market so far and we are looking forward to working with BBC Essex not only on the matchdays, but also with regards to the fantastic community work that we carry out across their broadcast area."

"We are pleased to be working with BBC Essex in the coming season and we were happy to agree a deal that works for both parties," U's General Manager Tim Waddington said.

All Colchester United fixtures, home and away, will be broadcast on the radio station as Joe Dunne prepares for his first full season in charge.

The U's quest for League One success will be broadcast across the airwaves in 2013/14, after the club agreed a deal with BBC Essex for the new campaign.

"Behind the scenes at the clubs, I detect some real optimism so we’re delighted to be able to bring fans home and away coverage. We will be there for every kick. I think we’re going to see our teams winning quite a bit next season, let’s hope so."
