Quite a few names with notable future managerial careers involved there. Familiar to us are Terry Venables and Ian Evans playing with Malcolm Allison in charge.

In goal for Colchester was Mike Walker who guided Norwich City to 3rd place in the 1st Division and a decent UEFA Cup campaign. He was appointed manager of Everton for what turned out to be a brief and pretty unimpressive spell. In central defence, Ray Harford was Kenny Dalglish's assistant when Blackburn Rovers won The Premiership and took over as manager the following season. In charge, Jim Smith became the epitome of an old-school journeyman football manager working at 10 clubs over the next 30 years. He won promotion to the top flight with Birmingham City, Oxford United and Derby County in 1996 when they pipped Palace to 2nd place by beating us in the penultimate match of the season at The Baseball Ground. He was also Harry Redknapp's assistant when Portsmouth were promoted to The Premiership.
