How the East Anglian Daily Times reported on the U's 2-2 draw at Notts County in May, 2001


Colchester United writer Carl Marston recalls the U’s last gasp 2-2 draw at Notts County on a Thursday night on May 3, 2001:

Scott McGleish obliged with one of his trademark headers to rescue a point for Steve Whitton’s U’s team, at Meadow Lane towards the end of the 2000-01 campaign.

The U’s may have lost on their last seven visits to Notts County, but before that dreadful run they did enjoy some good results, including this four-goal thriller from 16 years ago.

McGreal had netted with a header from Steve McGavin’s cross in a 2-1 defeat at Cambridge United just two days earlier, during this last week of the third tier campaign.

But at Meadow Lane the ex-Barnet striker’s late header counted for something. Again McGavin provided the cross, and McGleish’s headed into the roof of the net to notch his fourth goal since his January switch from Underhill.

Earlier, veteran Mick Stockwell had broken the deadlock after just nine minutes, when capitalising on an error by Anders Jacobsen, The defender’s attempted clearance seemed to hit Stockwell in the shin and fly into the net. This was rich reward for Stockwell, who had started every game for the U’s that season.

Mark Stallard equalised with a superb 25-yard lob, and Jacobsen then atoned for his earlier error by blasting the Magpies in front on the hour mark, only for McGleish to strike with the late equaliser.

U’s team v Notts County (May 3, 2001): Brown, Dunne, Keith, R Johnson, Clarke, Keeble, Pinault, Skelton, Stockwell (sub Morgan, 46), McGleish, McGavin.
