Colchester United owner Robbie Cowling and his wife Cheryl are the 759th richest people in the UK, according to the Sunday Times Rich List.

The Cowling duo were last year named the 659th richest nationally, but have fallen down the list this time round. They are ranked the 19th richest people in East Anglia, with a fortune worth £105 million.

Robbie Cowling, 47, owns online recruitment company Jobserve, while his wife has other wealth. He took over as U’s owner in 2006, following their promotion to the Championship.

  • ah… nice to know! I thought it was much lower – so he will be looking to invest the odd million or two over the next few years. Not to shabby!

  • So did I, never realised he was that loaded, can only be good news! Saw him parking his car up on Saturday before the game! Robbie Cowling da da da, Robbie Cowling! Up the U’s!

  • Not quite Lakshmi Mittal is it?! :P. Make sure you get promoted next season! I like going to Colchester, would be a shame to lose Layer Road, but I’m sure you’ll build character in the new ground

  • Oooh, Cowling rules!!!!! lol Yeah the U’s will come stright back up, and Cuckoo Farm will be the new Layer Road! Up the U’s!
