Women to face long-time cup rivals in semi-final of Waikato Cup

Cambridge’s women’s team will travel to Claudelands Rovers for their semi-final of this year’s Waikato Women’s Cup.

The match is scheduled for Galloway Park, Hamilton, at 11am on Sunday August 12. The match will bring together two clubs with an excellent recent record in the competition.

In 2013, Claudelands Rovers beat Cambridge in the final but a year later, Cambridge turned the tables, bringing the 2014 trophy back to John Kerkhof Park.

Cambridge were also beaten finalists in 2015 and reached the final of the Waikato Plate in 2016.

This year, the Cambridge women have reached the last four with a 5-0 win against Matamata Swifts in the first round, and then a 3-2 victory against Tokoroa in the quarter finals.

The winners of the Claudelands Rovers-Cambridge tie will play the winners of West Hamilton United and Melville United’s Development team.
