THE "Yellow Army" will be making a return next season as Colchester United look to make a big impression in League One.

The U's yellow away kit, which proved so popular during the Essex club's historic promotion to the Championship in 2005-06, will be the first choice kit on the road for the new campaign. And this decision coincided with the news that the U's have secured a four-year sponsorship package with sports firm PUMA, to provide all the kit for the first team and the youth team, as well as all the training gear, over the next four seasons.

U's Chief Executive Marie Partner said: "We are delighted about our association with PUMA.

"Their business has always been renowned for its quality of sportswear, as its worn by some of the top sporting teams in the world."
