Cambridge have made the most of their pre-season programme to prepare for the 2019 Lotto NRFL season, winning a string of friendly matches.
The first team and reserves traveled to WaiBOP Premiership club West Hamilton United for a double header on Saturday February 23 which provided an early measure of fitness for both squads.
Reds supporters saw the 2019 squad in action at home when the club hosted WaiBOP Premiership outfit Otumoetai on March 2.
On March 16, the club hosted a double header against Waipa neighbours Te Awamutu.
Pre-season games wound up on March 23 with a trip to NRFL First Division side Tauranga City United, priming our squads for the start of Northern League competition a week later.
