Colchester United continued their preparations ahead of the 2023/24 Sky Bet League Two season with a doubleheader victory over newly promoted Vanarma National League outfit Ebbsfleet United at the Kuflink Stadium.

The sides competed in two thirty-minute each-way matches to provide their respective squads with valuable minutes. 

The first encounter saw the U’s run out winners by the odd goal in five with Samson Tovide scoring an impressive hat-trick.

A single strike from Brad Ihionvien settled the second match. Colchester United are again in action on Tuesday, July 17 when they take on Sky Bet League One side Stevenage at St Neots Town FC (7.30pm).
