John Kerkhof Park hosts a tournament for our oldest players this Saturday while some of our best youngsters head to Taupo for a weekend tournament.

Veterans’ tournament

It’s attracted six teams – four from Auckland, one from Whangarei and a team of Cambridge players.

Games are 30 minutes long.

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

McCartney Tournament – Taupo

Cambridge will send six junior teams to Taupo for the long-running McCartney Invitational Tournament.

Named after Taupo AFC’s long-time president John McCartney, this tournament has been held annually since 2004 when it began with eight teams.

This year, it takes place at Taupo’s Crown park over the weekend of October 10-11, 2020.

It is now the largest juniors tournament in the country with dozens of teams gathering from the North Island.

The tournament has sections for boys and girls aged 8-15.

“It’s an exciting opportunity for young players to test themselves against the best in their age groups from the rest of the country,” Cambridge’s Technical Director, Ricki Herbert, said.

“These tournaments can play a big part in helping to encourage young players to work on their game and to set their sights on being the best they can,” Herbert said.
