the past few months, we have sadly lost some good friends and supporters of the CUSA and Colchester United. They will certainly
be greatly missed by all who knew them, but on a personal level, the sudden and recent loss of Kev Roberts has
really hit home hard. Kev was a great U's fan and one of my best friends and it was my pleasure to have known him
these past 20 odd years. He loved his family, football and friends, and above all he loved life.
Back in the Hedingham coach
days when we travelled to watch the U's together, our little "gang" always had a brilliant time with the odd
drink or two fuelling some top banter and ensuring some very happy days whatever the result. I even managed to persuade Kev
to play for the CUSA FC a few times. I think it was because he told me that back in the day he was a gifted left footed bomber.
Well his advancing years meant that he could little "bombing" from left back but I seem to recall that he was still
a top player, scoring his one and only goal with a long distance ping away at Lincoln City Supporters if my memory is
is one of many wonderful memories of Kev and I know that many more of you will have your own. He made each
and every moment in his company a complete and utter joy.
All of our thoughts and best wishes are with his son and daughter, Blake
and Bryony, at this most difficult of times
Rest in peace Kev
