Colchester United players were out on Thursday night to clap the NHS
8pm on Thursday saw the British public take to their front gardens, porches and drives to show their respect for the work that NHS staff are doing during the COVID-19 pandemic.
And the Colchester United players joined in from their own homes, where they have been for the past ten days since training was suspended.
U's midfielder Tom Lapslie was one of them, and told the official website: "The NHS staff do a fantastic job anyway, but now they are on the front line in the fight against Coronavirus so need our support."
"We are all safe at home as the Government have advised us to be, but the NHS workers don't have that option, they're working to keep us all safe.
"It's great that everyone is showing their support with the clapping and cheering."
