Providing the Waikato remains at Alert Level 2, Cambridge junior, youth and senior teams will be in action this weekend.
Level 2 guidelines restrict gatherings to a maximum of 100, meaning each game should be watched by no more than 100 on the sidelines (a gathering does not include players, officials and coaching group).
Spectators should not mingle with those attending games at adjacent pitches, under the guidelines, and spectators should maintain physical distancing of at least two metres.
We also ask all visitors to our grounds to log in to NZ Football’s contact tracing system, iDMe.
Here’s what’s in store for Cambridge supporters this weekend (August 15-16):
Lotto NRFL second division
Cambridge’s Northern League double header against Auckland club UniMount Bohemian has been postponed due to the level 3 lockdown preventing travel between our regions.
The Northern League games might be off but our matchday magazine is still available.
Cambridge travel to Tauranga City for a 12.30pm match in the WaiBOP Championship.
After a string of four draws in their last six outings, Cambridge are eager to find a win.
Waikato Senior Men’s
In Waikato Division 2, title contenders Cambridge host midtable Ngaruawahia United in a 2.45pm fixture.
Third-placed Cambridge are chasing the competition’s current leaders Hamilton Wanderers and St Paul’s Corinthians.
In Waikato Division 5, Cambridge D1s play Te Awamutu at Anchor Park (2.45pm).
The D2s are at home to bottom-placed Claudelands Rovers Newbies and are chasing back-to-back wins after their upset 3-1 win at leaders Tokoroa last weekend. The match starts at 12.30pm.
The junior draw was revised to help the club manage games within the NZ Football guidelines for alert level 2.
The club has taken extra precautions by postponing First Kicks and games for children up to grade 7.
An updated (Friday 8am) draw is now available.
Sunday – Women’s Waikato Division 2
This division splits into two groups from this weekend with Cambridge set to participate in the top-seeded group.
Cambridge will host Te Awamutu Pink Ladies at John Kerkhof Park, kicking off at 11am.
Sunday – Youth teams
Our U-14s travel to Northern United (11.15am) in the WaiBOP Federation Y-League.
Our U-12s host Hamilton Wanderers (10am) in the WaiBOP Federation J-League.
Our club uses the iDMe contact tracing system in line with New Zealand Football guidelines for helping to combat the risk of infection from COVID-19. We ask all our members, players and visitors – including those from visiting clubs – to manually log-in using our unique venue code for John Kerkhof Park which is P-E-S-F-D.
If using our pitch at the Cambridge Athletics Ground, key in the code S-C-E-C-W.
Notice to visitors
Please be aware our grounds and clubrooms are 100% smoke-free and council bylaws forbid visitors from bringing dogs to our grounds.
We ask visitors to not park in the car park spaces marked reserved as these will be used by volunteers needing to work in our clubrooms (including caterers, bar, committee members). Thanks.
