Cambridge FC’s Reds travel to Auckland again this weekend but home spectators can cheer on our WaiBOP Championship side at John Kerkhof Park on Saturday.
Here’s what’s in store for Cambridge supporters this weekend (August 8-9):
Lotto NRFL second division
The Reds can get into the top half of the competition with a Northern League win at Franklin United (3pm).
It won’t be easy after Franklin easily beat league leaders Onehunga Mangere 4-0 last weekend but the Cambridge side will be buoyed by their confidence-boosting 3-2 win against Northland.
The reserve teams from both clubs meet in the early game (12.30pm).
Travelling supporters can find the Drury Sports Complex here:
Cambridge host lowly Tauranga Old Blues at John Kerkhof Park, looking to recover from their 4-3 loss at Papamoa last weekend.
Old Blues have won only one of their eight championship games this season and could provide the opportunity for Cambridge to really stretch out.
It will be the feature game for home spectators this Saturday and kicks off at 2.45pm.
Waikato Senior Men’s
In Waikato Division 2, title contenders Cambridge head to Claudelands Rovers’ Galloway Park for a 12.30pm fixture.
Second-placed Cambridge need to beat fourth-placed Rovers to turn the competition into a three-way race with current leaders Hamilton Wanderers and St Paul’s Corinthians.
In Waikato Division 5, Cambridge D1s are at home to West Hamilton United (12.30pm).
The D2s travel to Tokoroa to take on the league leaders. While Cambridge have struggled to find a win this season, their performances are better than their league position, and they could make Tokoroa work hard for a result.
Junior football is well into its Term 3 programme now.
Sunday – Women’s Waikato Division 2
Cambridge go to Huntly Thistle’s ground, aiming to continue their improvement this season (11am).
The young Cambridge side is one of five in contention for the divisional title.
Sunday – Youth teams
Our U-14s host Melville United’s U-16 girls side (11am) in the WaiBOP Federation Y-League.
Our U-12s head to Grosvenor Park to play Northern United (10am) in the WaiBOP Federation J-League.
