The 25-year-old was a vital part of the squad last term, making 51 appearances in all competitions. He also popped up with four goals and ten assists despite operating in a more defensive role for the majority of the campaign.

Colbran became Club Captain in October after Aarran Racine was forced to retire and, under Racine’s Interim management, he captained the side to the National League South Promotion Final against Braintree Town where they came up just short in extra time.

Colbran remarked, “I’m delighted to have signed on for next season. Obviously, we’re all still hurting from the way last season ended, but now the aim is to go one better next year and get ourselves over the line.

“I’ve had good chats with Agi and Nath, and the vision and ambitions are clear and I’m buzzing to get going again next season”.

A former youth player at the club, Colbran was brought back to Woodside Road in October 2017.

In 2022/23, he won the Manager’s Player of the Season and Supporter’s Player of the Season awards after a magnificent campaign where he tallied up five goals and 15 assists from full back.
