Get behind the U’s with the Colchester United Official Matchday Playlist


Make sure you get along to home games at the Colchester Community Stadium in time to take in the pre-match atmosphere with Colchester United’s Official Matchday Playlist, which you can now stream on Spotify.

The Essex side are flying high at the top end of League Two, as they look to challenge for promotion from the fourth tier of English football in the 2018-19 campaign.

Whilst they’ve spent most of their history playing in the third and fourth divisions, the club had their best run of form back in 2007, finishing 10th in the Championship, above fierce local rivals Norwich City.

The 20 songs topping the matchday playlist, which will be played inside the ground ahead of every home game, are selected by by a Colchester United player, one Col U fan and one away supporter, along with a selection of the hottest new tracks from Shoot Music.

Ahead of their game with Forest Green Rovers, Colchester goalkeeper Rene Gilmartin has chosen tracks by Dermot Kennedy, SG Lewis, Damien Dempsey, Jay Z and Mobb Deep to be added to the playlist.

U’s fan Graeson Laitt has picked tunes by The Jam, Elton John & His Band, Joe Cocker, Imelda May and Bellowhead.

Visiting Rovers supporter Jeffrey Hebblethwaite has chosen songs by Editors, The Prodigy, Leftfield, Primal Scream and Little Roy for the playlist.

The matchday playlist is rounded off by five of the hottest new releases from Bear’s Den, John Newman, Wiley, Richard Hawley and Andy C.
