Colchester United face a tough start of the season, and an equally tricky finish to their 2018-19 season.

The U’s kick-off their League Two campaign with a trip to Notts County, who were beaten in the play-off semi-finals last season. The Magpies finished in fifth spot, having looked automatic promotion contenders for most of the year.

The first home game is the following weekend (August 11), against Port Vale, before the U’s travel to Mansfield Town on August 11
