Colchester United's Layer Rd Ground
Colchester United's Layer Rd Ground
Layer Road has been the venue for Colchesterís footie team since the 1909-10 season. Colchester Town F.C was wound up and Colchester United founded in 1937. The Uís finest hour came in the 5th round of the 1971 F.A Cup when the 4th Division Side beat the 1st Division (equivalent of premier league now) League Champions Leeds United 3-2. Not being much of a soccer fan I was in TM0024 at the time and could hear the roar each time a goal went in! The Layer Rd stadium is due to be replaced for the 2007-8 season with a brand new stadium at TL9929 : Cuckoo Farmto the north of the town see TL9929 : Weston Homes Community Stadium.
