What’s in store this weekend for our senior and youth teams

After a fortnight where most of our teams were on the road, John Kerkhof Park will be host to five senior games this weekend.

Here’s where our senior and youth teams are playing this weekend:

Lotto NRFL second division

The Reds are second on the table and host third-placed Manurewa AFC, a club that’s been to the heights of New Zealand football in the past with National League and Chatham Cup successes.

The reserves kick off at 12.30pm on Saturday and the main game will follow at 3pm.

Provisional first-team squad named for the match: 22 Patrick STEELE;  2 Levi CLARK; 4 Patrick WOODLOCK; 5 Jack PORTEGYS; 6 Harry WICK; 7 Kieran HILL; 8 Daniel CLARKIN; 11 Callum MACLEOD; 12 Marcelo SOSA; 14 Luke STEPHENSON; 15 Josh CLARKIN. Subs:  1 Patrick ESPIN (RGK); 9 Zach MAYO; 10 Kyle STEAD; 13 Fabian MUNOZ; 16 Mason WOODALL.

Matchday magazine

WaiBOP Championship

Cambridge’s championship side head to Taupo for a 12.30pm game. Both teams are in mid-table and a win will push one of them into the upper half on the ladder.

Waikato Division 3

On Saturday, Cambridge D1s play old rivals Northern United Debacles at John Kerkhof Park, kicking off at 1pm.

Waikato Division 4

The D2s are also at home this weekend, with a 12.30pm match on Saturday against divisional leaders Melville United.

Sunday – Women’s Waikato Division 1

Our women host Huntly Thistle at John Kerkhof Park at 11am. Both teams are at the foot of the division and a win would provide a boost for a Cambridge side that has been competitive in most games, and last week found winning form with a 6-2 win at Waihi in the Waikato Cup.

Sunday – WaiBOP Federation Youth/Junior Leagues

Both Cambridge’s youth/junior teams have league fixtures on Sunday.

The U-12 J-League side travels to play Rotorua United at Puarenga Park, starting 11am.

The U-13 Y-League team plays Claudelands Forca at John Kerkhof Park, starting 11am.
