Colchester United got off to a flying start in League One on Saturday, winning 1-0 at Gillingham.

Substitute Andy Bond’s 88th-minute strike gave Joe Dunne’s men all three points and left the Gills, promoted from League Two last season as champions.

Photographer Richard Blaxall was in Kent to capture the best of the action.
