U23s in Action at Coggeshall
Friday, 12th Jul 2019 10:51
Town’s U23s get their pre-season programme under way when they face Coggeshall Town in the now annual friendly at their West Street home on Saturday afternoon (KO 3pm).
Coggeshall chairman Graeme Smith’s company Chelmsford Plastic Warehouse is a sponsor of the Blues’ academy.
Last summer, the Town youngsters were beaten 2-1 by the Bostik North side with Armando Dobra, who is currently with the first team in Germany, netting for the team coached by Gerard Nash (pictured) and Chris Hogg.
Pop star Olly Murs is a co-owner of the club and featured for the Seedgrowers in the 2016 friendly between the clubs.
Admission is £5 for adults and free for children with tickets available on the turnstiles.
Food and drink will be available at the game with gates opening at 1pm, while there is parking at the ground, although early arrival will be required to secure a spot.
Meanwhile, the U18s, who beat Brighton 5-0 at home earlier in the week, are in action at Reading in a behind-closed-doors game.
A full list of Town's pre-season fixtures ahead of 2019/20 can be found here.

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.
Return of the Posh Messiah? - Peterborough Away Preview by portmantales
Classic standing terraces, a reckless Lee Martin and of course Darren Ferguson. These are the things that first come to mind when I think of Peterborough.
Heart of Darkness by Stowmarket
Joseph Conrad’s short novel Heart of Darkness is one of my favourite books. It is based on the real events which the writer experienced first-hand while travelling up the Congo river. It asks serious questions about empire-building and racism.
