MORE than 130 cubs are set to attend Colchester United’s final home game of the season this weekend.

Members of Colchester North District Scouts will be at the JobServe Community Stadium for the crucial clash with MK Dons on Saturday.

Another 30 adult volunteers will also be at the match which continues a tradition which has been going on for four years.

Bill Miller, who is the group’s assistant district commissioner for cubs, said he is looking forward to the match.


He said: “Most of them will play five-a-side on the astroturf in the morning, then have lunch and move into the stadium at 2pm.

“I am a match day steward at the club which is how the connection has come about and we have been organising it for the last few years. They have a fantastic time.

“Last year we went and it was absolutely freezing and this year we have left it slightly later which brings different challenges.

“But we are really looking forward to it.

“It is something we work on with Matt Hudson, who is in charge of media relations, and it works well.”
