Final Friendly Moved

Wealdstone fixture to be behind closed doors

28 July 2021

Colchester United's friendly against Wealdstone will now be played behind closed doors in north Essex.

Saturday's game was originally due to be played at Wealdstone's Grosvenor Vale home, but has been switched to the JobServe Community Stadium.

With rising COVID-19 cases, the U's requested the game be moved to north Essex with no fans in attendance, and Wealdstone kindly agreed to move the fixture.

The U's Technical Director Jon De Souza explained: "We're really disappointed to take this action because going to Wealdstone has proved to be fantastic pre-season preparation in the past, and it wasn't an easy decision to make."

"But with rising cases and everything geared towards the Carlisle game on August 7th, we felt that it was prudent to take minimum risks with the final game of the pre-season schedule.

"I must say a big thank you to Wealdstone for their co-operation and we're sure it will prove to be a tough test wherever we play them.

"We wish them well for their season ahead."
