U15s Host Chelsea

Premier League youngsters to visit JobServe Community Stadium

16 May 2019

Colchester United's U15s take on Chelsea on Thursday evening in our latest showcase game.

The game against the London giants takes place tonight, kick off 6.30pm, at the JobServe Community Stadium, with free admission for everyone.

Adam Lewis' youngsters play against top level opposition throughout the season in the Premier League U9s-U15s Games Programme, with matches against the likes of Arsenal, Spurs and Watford.

These games are location based so Chelsea aren't included in the U's group, and Adam is looking forward to new opposition for his squad.

"Chelsea are recognised as one of the strongest Academies in Europe, if not the world, so it will be a great chance for our boys to test themselves.

"It's also an opportunity for them to play on the first team pitch at the stadium, which can only stand them in good stead for the future, with some of them hopefully having some FA Youth Cup involvement in the next two or three years.

"We've got to thank the Chairman for giving us the opportunity to put this game on, and I'm sure that all the boys will enjoy the experience."
