Luke Prosser is determined to make up for lost time, during the last 18 games of this season.

Every weekend there are hundreds of runners and walkers who take part in their first-ever parkrun, and Saturday’s Great Notley parkrun, held at Great Country Notley Park near Braintree, was no exception.

Luke Prosser made a welcome return to the Colchester United starting line-up on Saturday, but it was an afternoon of mixed emotions for the U’s club captain.

For the first time since last September, Colchester United suffered back-to-back defeats in League Two, and they can have few complaints.

Colchester United boss John McGreal admitted that today’s 3-1 defeat at Wycombe Wanderers was “a hard one to take.”

Colchester United writer Carl Marston recalls a dramatic finale to the U’s 2-2 draw at Wycombe Wanderers on March 6, 1999:

ury St Edmunds’ head coach, Ollie Smith, is appealing for the “right attitude” from his team going into today’s National League Two South home fixture against Barnstaple (3pm).

Sammie Szmodics, the man of the moment, expects to be closely marked and deprived of space if he gets the nod to play at Wycombe Wanderers tomorrow afternoon.

Athletics correspondent Carl Marston is travelling around the region (and beyond!), running in different parkruns.

Colchester United have every incentive to repeat their away win at former Conference rivals Wycombe Wanderers from last season, when they visit Adams Park for a top-10 League Two clash this afternoon.

Colchester United will be forced into at least one change, for tomorrow’s League Two match at Wycombe Wanderers, following last weekend’s 4-1 home defeat to Cheltenham, due to Kyel Reid’s suspension.

Sammie Szmodics is on cloud nine at the moment. He’s the talk of the town, the man of the moment, the subject of transfer speculation, and he’s beginning to pick up some awards.

Colchester United’s man-of-the-moment, Sammie Szmodics, is not going to let any of the big-money transfer speculation affect his game.

Kurtis Guthrie is convinced that he will reach double figures for goals scored this season, even though he missed the first half of the campaign through long-term injury.

Brandon Comley could make his move to Colchester United a permament one, over the next few days.

Sammie Szmodics, who could be on his way to AFC Bournemouth in a big-money move this month, has been nominated for the EFL League Two player-of-the-month award for December.

Kurtis Guthrie crowned his first league start for nearly 11 months with a wonderful goal, although his opening strike ultimately proved fruitless in Colchester United’s 4-1 home defeat to Cheltenham Town.

Colchester United attacker, Sammie Szmodics, could be on his way to Premier League club AFC Bournemouth for a fee believed to be in the region of £1m.

Colchester United blew a great chance to soar into the League Two automatic promotion places, following Saturday’s deflating 4-1 home defeat at the hands of lowly Cheltenham Town.

Carl Marston’s U’s Player Ratings following yesterday’s 4-1 home defeat to Cheltenham Town, during which Kyel Reid was sent off just three minutes after Kurtis Guthrie had slammed the U’s into a 1-0 lead on 40 minutes.

Colchester United boss John McGreal insisted that Kyel Reid “let everyone down” following his 43rd minute red card during today’s 4-1 home defeat to Cheltenham Town.

Colchester United writer Carl Marston recalls the U’s first home match against Cheltenham, which ended in a 1-1 draw on September 7, 2002:

The biggest fear for Ollie Smith, Bury St Edmunds’ head coach, is that his side’s “under-estimates” the difficulty of their next three fixtures, all of whom are against teams in the lower half of the National League Two South table.

Colchester United boss, John McGreal, has some tricky selection choices to make ahead of this afternoon’s visit of 17th-placed Cheltenham.
