Colchester United U23s maintained their impressive start to the season on Monday, as they defeated their Hull City counterparts 2-0.
With a number of their usual players unavailable due to first team duty, it was a young U23s side that took on the Tigers.
After a bright start by City, the U's began to find their rhythm in the first half.
However, clear cut chances were hard to come by until Annan struck a shot which hit the inside of the post before going away to safety.
The second half was a more lively affair and the U's got their noses in front as the hour mark approached.
George Brown recycled a corner back into the area and Eli Phipps contrived some space to be able to beat Scottish keeper David Marshall and break the deadlock.
Brown then hit the bar as he bore down on the City defence, but the U's did extend tehir advantage with twenty minutes to go.
A free kick was sent forwards towards Callum Jones and he drove towards the box before finishing past Marshall.
Seven points from nine for Wayne Brown's side so far this season as they make a strong start to the campaign.
U's: Wilks, Wright, Wilson (Sturgess 52) Howard, Jeffries, Kensdale, Brown, Edge, Jones, Phipps (Mudd 80), Allarahkia (Ager 80)
