Work is now well underway to renovate the Colchester United playing surface ahead of the new season.
There were plenty of games on the U's pitch in 2017/18, with the first team games supplemented by the U23s home fixtures, plus an extended run in the FA Youth Cup by the U's U18s.
With the public pitch hires coming to a close last week, renovations began over the Bank Holiday weekend and are progressing well so far.
There are significant works taking place this year, to ensure a top notch surface for John McGreal's men for the new campaign.
We'll keep you up to date with the progress on the new pitch ahead of the new season and our upcoming summer concert.
