Match 45
5th April, 1969
Football League
Colchester United v ECFC

Saturday, 5th April, 1969
Football League
Colchester United (away), lost 0-1

City did well to hold one of the best sides in the Fourth Division to a narrow 1-0 victory on their own ground and men like Johnny Newman, Mike Balson and Peter Shearing put in a lot of both brilliant and hard defensive work to prevent the home side from turning their mid-field superiority into more goals.

We were under pressure for 75 per cent of the game and it was not until near the end that we came back to try and level the goal which Danny Light had scored for Colchester shortly before the interval.

Team Shearing: Smyth, Blain: Parker, Newman, Balson; Pleat (Mitten). Binney, Wingate. Curtis, Whatling.
