Tranmere banned from wearing their away strip at Colchester so Scousers play in the U’s gold away kit [Pictures]

The was a bizarre scene at the Weston Homes Community Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

Tranmere Rovers had to ditch plans to wear their usual away kit at Colchester when Rovers were told by the match officials that it would cause a kit clash.

The referee refused Tranmere permission to play in their sky blue away kit, which forced the visitors to play the match in Colchester’s gold away strip.
