Reds to play at least five matches as part of pre-season campaign

Cambridge will play at least five warm-up matches as part of their pre-season programme to prepare for the 2019 Lotto NRFL season.

The first team and reserves will travel to WaiBOP Premiership club West Hamilton United for a double header on Saturday February 23 which will provide an early measure of fitness for both squads.

Reds supporters get their first chance to see the 2019 squad in action at home when the club hosts WaiBOP Premiership outfit Otumoetai on March 2.

On March 16, the club will host three matches between our top three men’s sides and Waipa neighbours Te Awamutu. It’s also a possibility that the club will also stage over Over 40s match that day with Auckland club Bay Olympic.

Pre-season games wind up on March 23 with a trip to NRFL First Division side Tauranga City United, priming our squads for the start of Northern League competition a week later.

Spectators are encouraged to attend the pre-season fixtures at John Kerkhof Park.
