Loads of you have already signed up to the new scheme, which gives you the chance to win millions - and to benefit Colchester United at the same time.

When you play, you have to select your six numbers and then choose yourself a U's legend too.

We've got quite a mix of players for you to choose from when it comes to the legends, who are as follows:-

Mercurial winger who was so often the thorn in the side of our Essex rivals Southend United. After his time at Colchester United, he went on to represent Arsenal and continued his trickery on the wings.Perry Groves

Irish midfielder who ran the show from the heart of the team during his time at Layer Road. Later in his career, he had successful spells with Charlton Athletic and Aston Villa and represented his country at the World Cup.Mark Kinsella

Assured of his place in the U's history books for the winning penalty at Wembley in the 1998 Play Off Final, David is one of only a handful of players who has played over 200 times for Colchester United.David Gregory

One of our top ten appearance makers, Tony's contribution at the heart of the U's defence saw us return to the Football League in 1992. He was an assured presence at the back and contributed crucial goals too!Tony English

Player manager who guided the U's back into the Football League in rampaging style as the U's swept all before them. His goalscoring partnership with Steve McGavin was one of the highlights of that season.Roy McDonough

Voted the U's greatest player of the century at the end of the millennium, Peter's wizardry on the wings is still remembered to this day by the fans who were fortunate enough to see him in action.Peter Wright

The current U's manager, Joe's tough tackling, no nonsense performances at right back saw him become a huge favourite with the fans on the terraces at Layer Road.Joe Dunne
A key part of our 2005/6 promotion winning team, Dannsy was an all action midfielder who scored hatfuls of goals for the U's as Phil Parkinson took us into the Championship for the first time in our history.Neil Danns


Arguably one of the most gifted players to have played for the U's. He gave defenders nightmares with his wing play and it was no surprise that he went on to play at the highest level in the English game.Lomana Tresor Lua Lua
