What’s in store for our senior teams this weekend

posted in: Men, Women

John Kerkhof Park hosts the last two home games of the winter football season this weekend.

On Saturday (September 19), Cambridge hosts Tauranga City in the WaiBOP Championship (2.45pm).

Cambridge go into the match with a seven-point lead in the championship’s Group B and after Saturday’s home match, they will travel for their remaining fixtures against Hamilton Wanderers (September 26) and Tauranga Old Blues (October 3).

On Sunday (September 20), Cambridge’s women’s team complete their programme with a top-of-the-table clash against Thames (11am).

Thames have already secured the Waikato Women’s Division Two title and Cambridge are sure of second place. However, the match will provide an excellent measure of how much the Cambridge side has improved during a season of player development.

Meanwhile, the Reds’ Northern League season has ended after remaining fixtures were cancelled due to crowd-gathering restrictions in Auckland.

The club’s other senior and youth teams have all completed their fixtures for the season.

Keeping safe

Restrictions on spectators remain in place 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, or by scanning the QR code poster for the government’s contact tracing app.
