Cambridge’s top four men’s teams are all at home on Saturday, providing plenty of entertainment for spectators.
Here’s who and where our senior and youth teams are playing this weekend:
Lotto NRFL second division
The Reds host a Northern League double header against Northland FC.
The Reds are expected to give 17-year-old defender Kieran Vollebregt his first start after good performances off the bench.
Northland, who are fighting to avoid relegation, will be desperate to earn a point on the road.
Cambridge reserves have been resolute in defence recently but struggling to find the net. They’ll be keen to find some goalscoring form against Northland who sit atop the reserves table.
Provisional first team squad: 22. Patrick Steele,1. Fraser Nicholls, 2. Levi Clark, 3. Nathan Claridge, 4. Patrick Woodlock, 5. Jack Portegys, 8. Daniel Clarkin, 9. Zach Mayo, 10. Dylan Blair, 12. Marcelo Sosa, 13. Fabian Muñoz, 14. Luke Stephenson, 15. Josh Clarkin, 17. Sam Garmonsway, 18. Harry Wick, 20. Kieran Vollebregt.
