Cambridge FC’s senior teams wrapped up their season at the weekend with the reserves and D1s clinching runners-up spots in their respective competitions.
Here’s how our teams performed:

These teams have already completed their fixtures for the season.
Waikato Division D
The D1s beat Tokoroa 6-2 at John Kerkhof Park to end their season on a high.
Goals from Peter Buesnel (4), Dave O’Donnell and Tony Dikmans (pen) saw Cambridge coast to a comfortable win. Goalkeeper Paul McCann saved a penalty.
The win kept alive the team’s hopes of winning the divisional title but only until news filtered through from Te Aroha where home side Cobras had taken the title with a 1-0 win against Cambridge D2s.

Sunday: Waikato Women’s A-League
The Cambridge women wrap up their league schedule with a match against Matamata Swifts kicking off at Matamata Domain at 11am on Sunday.
The team has already clinched second spot in the competition, as well as being runners-up in the Waikato Women’s Cup, but will be looking to finish with a win as a tribute to veteran goalkeeper Jen Hull.
Hull joined Cambridge seven seasons ago, from Matamata, and has since played more than 120 times for the club, appearing in four cup finals and captaining the side for the past two seasons.
Hull – known to all and sundry as ‘Stoney’ – has decided to call an end to her football career this season.
