For the first time since last summer, there’ll be no games of football this weekend at John Kerkhof Park – but our club will still have plenty of players in action.
Our club is sending six teams to the prestigious McCartney Invitational Tournament taking place in Taupo over the weekend.
The tournament, named after Taupo AFC’s long-time president John McCartney, has been held annually since 2004 when it began with eight teams.
It is now the largest juniors tournament in the country with dozens of teams gathering from the North Island.
The tournament, at Crown Park, includes sections for boys and girls aged 8-15.
Cambridge will be represented by four boys teams (9th, 10th, 12th and 13th grades) and two girls teams (10th and 12th grades).
Senior football returns to John Kerkhof Park on Saturday October 26 when WaiBOP play Capital in the National Women’s League. The game kicks off at 1.30pm.
Over the weekend of November 16-17, our club will host games from all three national leagues – youth, men’s and women’s.
On Saturday November 16, Hamilton Wanderers will play Auckland City in the National Youth League (kick off 11am), followed by an ISPS Handa Premiership match between the two clubs at 2pm.
On Sunday November 17, WaiBOP will play Central in the National Women’s League (2pm).
