Overtime or extra time is an additional period of play specified under the rules of a sport to bring a game to a decision and avoid declaring the match a tie or draw where the scores are the same. In some sports, this extra period is played only if the game is required to have a clear winner, as in single-elimination tournaments where only one team or players can advance to the next round or win the tournament. In other sports, particularly those prominently played in North America where ties are generally disfavored, some form of overtime is employed for all games.

In February 2008, Webb was sent on loan for one month to Folkestone Invicta. [5] He was then released at the end of the 2007–08 season as Colchester were relegated from the Championship to League One.
