Busy weekend ahead for club

Cambridge players and supporters face a busy weekend with seniors and juniors in action, as well as the eighth staging of our annual sevens tournament for men.

On Saturday, our men’s first team will play Auckland club Papatoetoe as part of their preparation for this year’s return to Northern League.

The game kicks off at the earlier-than-normal time of 12.30pm at John Kerkhof Park, following the cancellation on Friday of the match planned between the two clubs’ reserves teams.

Both of the Reds’ NRFL squads have had a successful pre-season build-up so far, with the first team beating Otumoetai 4-2 and Waipa rivals Te Awamutu 7-2.

The Reserves drew 2-2 with Otumoetai and last week beat Te Awamutu 3-0.

On Sunday, many of our junior players will gather for their grading games.

Sunday also sees the Cambridge Sevens (men’s) return to John Kerkhof Park with matches starting at 9.30am and ending with the final at about 5pm. The women’s tournament will be held on Sunday March 11.
