Colchester United headed off to Carden Park for their pre-season camp on Wednesday morning, as preparations step up for the new campaign.
The first team squad will take on Colwyn Bay on Friday evening in their third friendly, after two busy days of preparation on Wednesday and Thursday.
And the squad will also include defender Kane Vincent-Young, with boss John McGreal saying after Tuesday's friendly win against Braintree: "Kane will be on the trip to Carden Park, which is brilliant news for us.
“We’ve tried really hard with Kane. I don’t know what’s gone on and I’m not going to ask too many questions but he’s been one of our players and he’s been excellent for us, especially during my two-year tenure in charge.
“There’s a genuine hope now that he’ll sign the contract."
The U's have won both pre-season friendlies so far and head to the north west in good spirits.
We'll have updates during the course of their trip and admission prices for Friday's friendly are:-
