Cambridge spectators have only two home games to watch this weekend but a trip to Auckland to support the Reds could pay dividends.
On Saturday, John Kerkhof Park hosts a men’s Waikato Cup tie and on Sunday, Cambridge women begin their venture in the women’s Waikato Cup.
Due to the long weekend, the club’s Over 35s teams and youth teams have no fixtures.
Here’s how the weekend shapes up:
Lotto NRFL second division
The Reds travel to Auckland’s Fencibles United, chasing their fourth win in a row.
That’s not been achieved by a Cambridge team in the Lotto NRFL for at least a decade but this team is in form and will be keen to roll second-placed Fencibles on their home turf.
This could be a key game for the Reds’ season and supporters who fancy a trip to Auckland could be rewarded with a memorable game.
The clubs’ U-23 sides will play at 12.30pm, followed by the first teams who will kick off at 3pm.
How to get there
Cambridge travel to Whakatane Town for a 12.30pm game.
After last weekend’s 3-2 loss to new league leaders Tokoroa, second-placed Cambridge will want to get the points against Town, who are third on the table.
Waikato Cup (men’s)
Cambridge have two teams entered in the men’s Waikato Cup.
The club’s Waikato Division 1 side play at John Kerkhof Park on Saturday – kick off is 12.30pm – when they meet West Hamilton United’s reserve team.
Cambridge’s Division 4 team, who are undefeated so far in pre-season and competition this year, travel to Hamilton’s Porritt Stadium to play Hamilton Wanderers Crimson (2.45pm). Please note: Venue for this game was changed at 11.30am on matchday.
No fixtures this weekend.
Sunday: Waikato Cup (women’s)
Cambridge host Tokoroa in the first round of the Waikato Women’s Cup.
Please note the later-than-usual kick off time of 1pm.
Sunday: WaiBOP Y-League
Neither of the club’s youth teams, the U-15s and U-13s, have fixtures this weekend.
