IT'S been an eventful first half of the season for Colchester United.

And as always, the Gazette has been at every single U’s match both home and away to cover all of the action.

For decades, the Gazette has proudly served fans with in-depth daily coverage of the U's.

And that continues, as Matty Etherington's side attempt to move clear of the League Two relegation zone.

I've been covering Colchester United since 2005, starting when Phil Parkinson's side were riding high in League One and on their way to a historic promotion.

This is my 18th year covering the club for the Gazette and I’m proud to be providing in-depth coverage of Colchester United.

We cover the U’s week in, week out, win, lose or draw, through the good times and the bad and as an independent outlet from the club.

Whether it’s tactical analysis, unrivalled opinion, injury updates, big interviews or those divisive player ratings, we are there every step of the way.

We’re at every fixture home and away and every Florence Park press conference, to take you behind the headlines.
