Tom's An Ever Present

6 May 2015

Defender plays every minute of every game.

In total, forty players have now had ever present seasons and Sam is one of a number of goalkeepers to have achieved that feat.

Tom becomes the second player in two seasons to play every game - Sam Walker achieved that feat in 2013/14, and only missed two games this time around, with Chris Lewington playing in the cup game v Charlton and the league match at Chesterfield.

His consistency across the season will mean he is likely to be a front runner for this year's end of season awards to be presented on Friday evening.

It takes his Colchester United total up to 149 appearance since arriving from Ipswich Town back in 2011.

Remarkably, Tom played every minute of every game in both league and cup this season - a total of 51 matches.

Colchester United defender Tom Eastman had a season to remember, as he completed an ever present campaign with his appearance against Preston on Sunday.

Mike Walker had an astonishing SEVEN ever present campaigns in his time at the club and is one of ten players to have been ever present more than once:-

Harry Bearryman - 3
Micky Cook - 3
