Cambridge’s John Kerkhof Park will host some crucial games this Saturday with five men’s teams all playing at home.
Here’s the weekend line-up of action:
Lotto NRFL second division
Cambridge’s first team play in Saturday’s main game at John Kerkhof Park against Franklin United with a 3pm kick off.
The match is the Reds’ last home fixture of the Northern League season and a win would lift Cambridge from second-bottom and into mid-table of a division that has become extremely tight.
The reserves host Franklin United’s second string at 12.30pm and a win will ensure the Reds stay at the top of their reserves competition.
Loaded WaiBOP Championship
The championship squad host second-placed Taupo in a 12.30pm fixture. Taupo need the win to keep pressing for promotion to the WaiBOP Premiership while Cambridge are chasing another win to pull clear of bottom-placed Matamata Swifts.
Cambridge travel to Te Aroha Cobras’ Boyd Park for a 2.45pm match.
The D1 side continue their quest for the divisional title with a home match against second-placed Te Aroha Cobras, kicking off at 12.30pm.
The D2s host Waikato Unicol, also at 12.30pm.
Sunday: Waikato Women’s A League
Cambridge’s women travel to West Hamilton United’s Bremworth Park on Sunday, kicking off at 11am.
Youth and junior football
Our U-12 boys’ team hosts Papamoa on Sunday for an 11.00am game in the WaiBOP Federation Youth League.
The U-13 boys have the weekend off.
