Eastman Hits Appearance Landmark

300 up for U's centre half

27 December 2018

Colchester United defender Tom Eastman hit a personal landmark in the U's Boxing Day game against Stevenage.

Tom, who joined the U's in the summer of 2011, has now played 300 first team games for the club since making his debut against Barnet in the Johnstone's Paints Trophy.

The 27-year-old was the 763rd player to pull on the U's shirt in a first team game and has seen a further 127 players make their debuts in his time at the club.

Remarkably, he has only been booked 28 times in those 300 games, with only one red card.

He has fifteen goals to his name so far, including one against Yeovil this season.

Tom also has a unique place in the club's history, as the only outfield player to have won the Player of the Year award three times (2013/14, 2014/15 and 2017/18, with goalkeeper Mike Walker also having won it three times (1979/80, 1980/81 and 1982/83).
