Keepers Come Out On Top

Ross and Gerken win Ripple pic competition

15 July 2019

The U's goalkeepers proved most popular for drink top pictures at Open Day

At the launch of the Ripple Beverage Top Media device at their Open Day, Colchester United offered up two tickets to one of their pre-season fixtures to the winner of a very unique competition.

Those who purchased a suitable drink were asked to vote for their favourite player and it was served with that player’s image printed onto the froth. 

It was close call, but the keepers won out with Ethan Ross and Dean Gerken coming out on top.

Those supporters who voted for Dean or Ethan were placed into a draw for two tickets to either the friendly against Ipswich on Friday 19th July or the Charlton friendly on Tuesday 23rd July.

That draw took place on Monday, and the winner was Kerry Strain from Stanway.

She has chosen to use the two tickets she won for the game against newly promoted Championship side Charlton Athletic.
