Why I'm On Board

3 June 2014

One fan tells us why he's grabbed a U's Season Ticket for his family for 2014/15.

We booked tickets for Sheffield United in the FA Cup - what a second half fight back! I think after that game we become fans already. Garbutt and Bonne being the ones we noticed that day.

Then after my father passed away and mum was suffering with bowel cancer, the time for something new kicked in.

We had been meaning to come to watch the U's for some time, but it never seemed to happen. Why I'm On Board - David Hammond

We're hoping to run another series of stories on why people have bought a Season Ticket and we start off with a piece from fan David Hammond.

This year, the month of May was a very successful period for the U's Ticket Office, with sales 8% up on a year ago.

Last summer, we ran a series of articles on the official website from Season Ticket holders, who told us why they'd decided to get themselves a Colchester United Season Ticket.

We would also like to say that, after Tom arranged for Daniel's birthday to meet the players after the Gillingham game via Matt, we were blown away with the reception.

We ended up going to 13 matches last season and although it was hard going we and yourself never lost faith, even after Oldham and Tranmere and to see the joy on everyone's face after the Brentford game made it all worthwhile.

As I said earlier we never lost hope and when we play football we can beat anyone, hopefully with our star youngsters we can move forward and this season finish in top ten. This season, we are getting 1 adult, 1 youth and 1 U14s in E8, as we enjoy the atmosphere and view there.
