England Men's Under 20s Come to Colchester United FC!
England’s Young Lions will head to Colchester United FC in March when the Men’s Under 20s welcome Germany on Tuesday 29th March (7:30pm kick-off), four days after a trip to Poland.
Since the start of the 2021/22 season, Andy Edwards’ side have comfortably beaten Romania and the Czech Republic, drawn with Italy and lost to Portugal. Now Essex fans can look forward to welcoming the squad for a fixture at the JobServe Community Stadium.
Edwards said: “I know Colchester is a venue that has served England teams well in the past, with various men’s development and women’s fixtures having been staged there successfully. We look forward to returning to Essex with another exciting crop of Young Lions. As all England fans know, a fixture against Germany always stirs excitement, and this occasion will be no different.”
Tim Waddington, Colchester United FC’s General Manager, added: “It’s fantastic news that England are returning to the JobServe Community Stadium, and a real honour to host them once again.”
“We have been blessed with football fans in Colchester and the surrounding areas wanting to support the England national sides here in the past, and we are expecting another bumper crowd to be cheering on Andy Edwards’ Young Lions this time round.”
Brendan Walshe, Essex County FA Chief Executive, is also looking forward to the match, recalling: “Whenever matches on an international stage are welcomed to Colchester, the Essex fans never disappoint, turning out in numbers and creating a wonderful atmosphere. It’s a privilege that fixtures of this status can be hosted so successfully in our county and we can’t wait for the game.”
