Coach Woodlock: ‘Three points is a good start.’

posted in: Northern League

Cambridge FC’s head coach Mike Woodlock acknowledged that old rivals Ngongotaha had given his side “a really hard game” after the Reds won their season opener 5-2 at Stembridge Road.

“Three points is a good start,” he said as his squad celebrated their return to Northern League football after an absence of six years.

In recent seasons, Cambridge and Ngongotaha have built a strong rivalry with the Reds winning the WaiBOP Premiership in 2015, ahead of Ngongotaha, and then suffering a reverse when the Bay club took the title in 2016, earning promotion to the Northern League.
