Colchester Community Stadium
Time at Club:
Colchester United are managed by John McGreal who became the club's permanent boss in May 2016 following the departure of Kevin Keen. In his debut season Colchester finished in 8th, one point and one place outside of the play-offs.
Colchester were up in the Championship between 2006 and 2008, but they now find themselves down in League Two after eight seasons in League One. For several years they were punching above their weight in the Championship but now after falling down to the bottom tier they will be expected to bounce back under McGreal, although they just missed out on a top-7 standing last season.
A single draw against Yeovil Town in an otherwise black and white set of results has seen Colchester United struggle for consistent results. Wins against Lincoln City, Milton Keynes Dons, Grimsby Town & Cambridge United and defeats to Ipswich Town, Bury, Oldham Athletic, Tranmere Rovers & Exeter City demonstate slightly erratic form.
