Here are 10 highlights of Colchester United’s 2013-14 season, which ended with the U’s in 16th spot on 53 points.
1 Andy Bond clambers off the bench, as an 87th minute substitute, to score the winner just 60 seconds later in an opening day 1-0 victory at Gillingham
2 Cracking goals by Jeffrey Monakana and Jabo Ibehre are the highlights of an entertaining 2-2 draw at Bradford, which also sees a fine debut from Luke Garbutt – a promising sign for future months
3 Macauley Bonne scores a dramatic winner over promotion-chasing Peterborough to secure a 1-0 home win, and so end a miserable run of no wins in 11 league games. The Community Stadium really rocked that day!
4 Elliot Lee’s last gasp equaliser, to snatch a 2-2 draw at Rotherham, feels more like a winner than an equaliser in early November
