Defender is 800th U's player.
Other landmark debutants include:
He became the tenth debutant this season under Joe Dunne's management, although the U's have some way to go to reach the 76 debutants in 1945 as the U's sourced new players on a regular basis during the war years.
And it was a debut to remember for the big centre half, who helped the U's to a crucial clean sheet to ensure a vital three points and a return of that winning feeling on Saturday.
In taking to the pitch against Peterborough United at the weekend, he became the 800th player to pull on a Colchester shirt in all competitions since our formation in 1937.
On loan central defender Cian Bolger made a little bit of U's history when he made his Colchester United debut on Saturday.
There's also a great couple of charts for you, put together by our good friend Graeson Laitt.
