What’s in store for our senior and youth teams

Here’s how you can follow Cambridge’s senior and youth teams in a busy round of games this weekend.

Our men’s first team and reserves head to Auckland to play Onehunga Mangere United in a Lotto NRFL second division┬ádouble header at Mangere Mountain. Kick off times are 12.30pm (reserves) and 3pm (first team).

Onehunga Mangere United, coached by former All Whites Brian Turner and Dave Taylor, were relegated from the competition last year but found a way back via play-offs when Mangere United merged with Manukau City, creating a vacancy in the second division.

Here’s how to get to the ground:

Our championship side head to league newcomers Te Puke United for a 1.30pm fixture at Litt Park, Te Puke.

Lee McNally and his Waikato A squad play at John Kerkhof Park for the first time this season, hosting Ngaruawahia United. The game kicks off at 12.30pm.
