Less mileage for the U's!

COLCHESTER United now know all their League One opponents for next season, after the weekend's play-off finals.

Ex-U's centre-half Garry Richards played the full 90 minutes in Gillingham's last gasp 1-0 win over Shrewsbury Town in Saturday's League Two play-off final.

That means the U's will have a short jaunt over the Thames to Priestfield next term, rather than a longer journey westwards to the New Meadow.

And Scunthorpe United turned the tables on Millwall to clamber out of League One with a dramatic 3-2 success at Wembley on Sunday. Again this will mean less mileage for Paul Lambert's men, with a visit to South London rather than North Lincolnshire.
