Groundhopping at Colchester United

December 3, 2021

Colchester United won't be high on many groundhopping lists, but the club is based in a nice town not too far from London, and it's a trip into the kind of small-time English football where some different kinds of fun can be had. I went out there as part of a three-game weekend in East…
