Colchester United are continually linked with ex players still in the game and a number of them are playing in the Premiership. So what about an old boy`s XI?

The main factors for selection are the player`s past reputation and performances for the club.

See if you agree or disagree with Vital Colchester United`s selections. If so, tell us why at the end of this article.

Feel free to comment or make other suggestions if you feel any player has been overlooked – that`s all part of the fun.

A possible Colchester United Select team made up of past CUFC players still playing today at different clubs:

Goalkeeper:
Simon Brown (Brentford – U`s 1999 – 2004)

Defenders:
Greg Halford (Sunderland – U`s 2002 – 2007)
Wayne Brown (Leicester – U`s 2004 – 2007)
Liam Chilvers (Preston – U`s 2003 – 2006)
Joe Keith (Tilbury -U`s 1999 – 2005)

Midfielders:
Karl Duguid (Plymouth – U`s 1996 – 2008)
Neil Danns (Palace – U`s 2004 – 2006)
Lomana LuaLua (Al-Arabi – U`s 1998 -2000)
Richard Garcia (Hull City – U`s 2004 – 2007)

Strikers:
Jamie Cureton (Norwich – U`s 2006 – 2007)
Chris Iwelumo (Wolves – U`s 2005 – 2007)

Subs:
Sam Stckley (Port Vale U’s 2002 -2006)
Garry Richards (Gilligham – U`s 2005-2007)
Craig Fagan (Hull City – U`s 2004-2005)
Alan White (Luton Town – U`s 2000 – 2004)
Gerorge Elokobi (Wolves – U`s 2004-2008)
Kevin Lisbie (Ipswich – U`s 2007-2008)

Remember- All dates are with the players, many of them first on loan, joined the club full-time. They must have signed for the U’s on a permanent contract (not loan – this is a possible future idea!) and still be playing football for a club.

Credit should go to Vital Derby who inspired the original idea.

So do you think this team could be improved? Which players still playing today could come into the side?
