Gerken Set to Rejoin Colchester
Monday, 8th Jul 2019 08:23
Former Blues keeper Dean Gerken is expected to rejoin his former club Colchester United later this week.
Gerken, 34, has been linked with a return to the U’s, where he began his senior career, since May having been released by the Blues after six years.
According to the Colchester Gazette, Gerken is training with John McGreal’s squad with both club and player keen to complete a deal, 10 years after his departure for Bristol City.
Gerken joined Town on a free transfer after a trial having left the Robins in the summer of 2013 and went on to make 113 starts for the Blues.
The Rochford-born keeper made 126 appearances during his first spell with Colchester, making his debut in 2004 having come through their youth system.

Football's Financial Crisis by Stowmarket
I have been watching English football for over 40 years, from top-tier to non-league. In that time it has faced many low points, including mass hooliganism and stadium deaths in tragedies such as Hillsborough and Valley Parade.
Green’Un With Envy by ElephantintheRoom
I guess you have to be of a certain age to remember the Green’Un. Those brought up in the era of the Internet might struggle to understand the excitement of hearing a possibly still-damp newspaper of greenish hue drop through the letter box on a Saturday evening.
