Final Day Football Fix

The U's are going up!

24 April 2020

Let's go back to 2006.

This weekend should have seen Colchester United take on Forest Green Rovers here at the JobServe Community Stadium in the final game of the 2019/20 campaign.

COVID-19 and the lockdown has put paid to that, but we've got a memorable football fix to take its place.

Fourteen years ago, the U's were a point away from being promoted to the Chamionship for the first time in our history, with Yeovil Town standing in ther way on the last day.

Around 3,000 fans made the trip down to Somerset to cheer the side on, and whilst the game wasn't a classic - the outcome was!

You can watch the full ninety minutes from Huish Park, plus the added bonus of some celebration footage.

See the players celebrate in the away changing room at Yeovil, watch them arrive in Colchester High Street on the bus parade, and finish with them being presented with their medals on the Town Hall balcony.

To watch all this, head to the U's colu_official YouTube channel at 3pm on Saturday.
