Weston Homes has backed the U’s for the past two years and will continue to display its logo on first team home shirts for the next three.

The agreement between the club and the developer was signed yesterday at Colchester Utd’s ground, the Weston Homes Community Stadium, before the club’s victory over Barnsley in League One.

Bob Weston, chief executive officer of Weston Homes, said: “We have been a proud supporter of Colchester United for many years and we are delighted to sponsor the team kits for the next three seasons.

“Colchester has a fantastic community spirit and the Community Stadium is at its heart. We are delighted to provide continued support to the team and the local community.”
