This weekend sees all Cambridge’s senior men’s, women’s and Federation youth teams in action.
Lotto NRFL second division
Our Northern League teams host Oratia United, from West Auckland, with the reserves match kicking off at 12.30pm and the main game starting at 3pm.
The reserves game could be a cracker with both clubs winning their opening matches last weekend.
Cambridge ground out a 1-0 win at Franklin United (click here for match report) while Oratia romped to a 5–1 victory against Claudelands Rovers.
In the first team game, Cambridge will want to show their season–opening 2-1 win at Franklin United was no fluke, especially as Oratia slumped to a 3–0 home loss to Claudelands Rovers.
Saturday’s matchday sponsor is Score Sportswear, distributors of Lotto Sportswear
Our WaiBOP Championship team will play Matamata Swifts in a local derby.
Cambridge lost last weekend’s opening game 2–0 at Waikato Unicol, while the Swifts shared the spoils in a 1-1 draw with Taupo.
The Championship game starts at 12.30pm.
