posted in: Men, News, Northern League, Women, Youth

Northern League football returns to John Kerkhof Park this Saturday with the visit of Northland FC.

Here’s what’s in store for Cambridge supporters this weekend (August 1-2):

Lotto NRFL second division

The Reds get the chance to kick clear of the bottom end of Lotto NRFL’s second division with their game against second bottom Northland (3pm kick off).

Cambridge are one of eight clubs trapped in a cluster of sides with only five points separating them. A win this weekend will be a major boost.

The reserves kick off against Northland’s second-stringers at 12.30pm.

WaiBOP Championship

Cambridge travel to Papamoa with a win needed to stay in touch with the competition’s leading trio, Taupo, Whakatane Town and Claudelands Rovers.

Three draws in July weakened Cambridge’s challenge for the title but a win on the road will help fix that.

The game starts at 12.30pm.

Waikato Senior Men’s

In Waikato Division 2, title contenders Cambridge head to Hamilton for a re-match with Waikato Unicol who they beat 11-2 in the season opener.

The game at Waikato University starts at 2.45pm.

In Waikato Division 5, Cambridge D2s are at home to Northern United Numpties (12.30pm). The D2s have been playing good football but a string of four draws has left them in midtable.

The D1s game at Tokoroa has been defaulted by Cambridge because of a shortage of available players.


Junior football returns on Saturday after a two-week break due to school holidays.

Sunday – Women’s Waikato Division 2

Cambridge play at home for the first time in a month when they take on Melville United Epics at John Kerkhof Park (11am).

The young Cambridge side is one of five in contention for the divisional title.

Sunday – Youth teams

Our U-14s host Papamoa (11am) in the WaiBOP Federation Y-League.

Cambridge are currently second in the competition – tied on points and goal difference with their visitors.

The winner will be best-placed to challenge league leaders Rotorua United for the competition title.

Our U-12s are at home to Melville United (10am) in the WaiBOP Federation J-League.
