Colchester United extended their recent good run to just one defeat in their last nine league games, but this was a bore draw at the Weston Homes Community Stadium this afternoon. Lowly Morecambe will be more than happy to take a point back up to the north-west coast. It was a point they deserved – the U’s certainly did not do enough to merit all three points in a game of very few clear-cut chances. It was very poor fare, from start to finish, with too many stray passes and over-hit crosses.
Colchester United boss, John McGreal, was disappointed that his side could not get an early goal during today’s goalless home draw against lowly Morecambe. “It was unfortunate that we just couldn’t get that early goal,” rued boss McGreal. “But the boys are on a really good run, with 18 points out of the last nine games, and five clean-sheets in there. “We just need to get on the ball a bit quicker, and also move it a bit quicker.
Athletics correspondent Carl Marston is travelling around the region (and beyond! ), running in different Parkruns. I was shown a clean pair of heels, or rather a clean pair of paws, by not-one, not-two but three dogs at last Saturday’s Wimpole Estate Parkrun. And there may have been more of the hounds ahead of me – it was difficult to keep with it all around a muddy 5K course.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
