I wonder if these cup matches have different rules still.. Like so many senior players have to participate. And so many youth players have to have played so many minutes for the first team?

Inevitable, I suppose.

It will be nice to give all those recently released players a proper good bye, if the crowds are let in of course, I'd love to give Chambo, Skuse & Freddy the thanks they deserve for their service to us!!

It’ll make a nice change playing Colchester’s Over 35s compared to a Premier League U23s.

Crowds will be in barring somekind of massive change: Passports approved by Boris today.
