Cambridge spectators had only one home match to watch over Queen’s Birthday Weekend but it was a cracker.
The Reds went down 5-4 after extra time was needed to decided the ISPS Handa Chatham Cup tie against Glenfield Rovers.

Cambridge’s championship side lost 3-2 at Otumoetai after leading 2-0 at the break.
Cambridge took a 6th-minute lead through James Cakebread before Adam Brady added a second on the quarter hour.
However, momentum turned to Otumoetai after the sides turned round at half-time with strong winds off the neighbouring beach helping the home side who overhauled Cambridge for the win.
