posted in: Men, News, Northern League

An older and more physical Unimount Bohemian Celtic out-muscled a young Cambridge reserves side 3-1 at John Kerkhof Park.

Playing the early game at John Kerkhof Park in a Lotto NRFL second division double header, Cambridge took the lead in the first half through an Andrew Taylor header.

The Aucklanders levelled before half-time and then exerted themselves in the second half, extending their lead to 3-1.

Next Saturday, Cambridge travel to Albany United for a double header. The reserves will kick off at 12.30pm while the clubs’ first teams will meet at 3pm.
