Cambridge supporters are in for a feast of football at John Kerkhof Park this weekend, despite the weather.
After a week of heavy rain, most of our pitches were declared playable on Saturday morning.
On Saturday, Cambridge FC hosts four senior men’s matches, headed by a Lotto NRFL second division match-up between the Reds and Te Atatu from Auckland.
The reserves game kicks off at 12.30pm with the Reds leading the competition by four points. This match presents a perfect opportunity to at least maintain that lead.
At 3pm, the first teams go into action with Cambridge looking to build on last weekend’s 2-2 draw with Northland FC as new coach Paul Richardson settles into the job.
Loaded WaiBOP Championship
Our men’s championship side will be smarting after losing last Saturday’s local derby with Matamata Swifts, and will be looking for league points with the visit of Waikato Unicol’s reserve team.
The match kicks off at 12.30pm.
Waikato A – postponed
The A team match against the Te Aroha Cobras scheduled for 2.45pm has been postponed.
The D1 side hosts Waikato Unicol, starting at 12.30pm, while the D2 team travel to Melville United’s Gower Park (subject to pitch inspection).
Yes, that’s right, we’re hosting an international match between Cambridge’s 11th-grade Clarets and the touring AS Venus side from Tahiti. The match kicks off at 11am on Saturday. Details here.
Sunday: Waikato Women’s B
This turns out to be a big match for our women’s team as a win or draw against Waikato Unicol will see them promoted to the Women’s A League for the second half of the season.
Cambridge currently sit second on the B table, ahead of Unicol on goal difference.
The women’s match kicks off at 11am at John Kerkhof Park.
Sunday: Youth Leagues
Cambridge’s U-12 boys team travels to Gower Park for a 10am match against Melville United.
The U-13 boys go to Tauranga City United’s Macville Park for their WaiBOP Federation Youth League fixture which starts at 11.20am.
