What’s in store for our senior and youth teams this weekend

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

Cambridge FC will stage eight home games this weekend in what will be one of the busiest schedules at John Kerkhof Park in recent years.

On Saturday, John Kerkhof Park hosts Lotto NRFL and WaiBOP Championship games while our women and both youth teams are at home on Sunday.

Here’s how the weekend shapes up:

Lotto NRFL second division

The Reds host third-placed Northland in a double header at John Kerkhof Park on Saturday.

Cambridge are fourth on the table and a win would see them overhaul the Northerners.

Both teams have been in goalscoring form this season so a high-scoring match would not be a surprise.

The clubs’ U-23 sides will play at 12.30pm, followed by the first teams who will kick off at 3pm.

WaiBOP Championship

Cambridge meet Ngaruawahia United at 2.45pm at John Kerkhof Park on Saturday.

After a flying start to the season, Cambridge have stumbled the last couple of games but this provides the perfect chance to keep in touch with league leaders Tokoroa and Whakatane Town.

Waikato Division 1

Cambridge host Melville United’s Mighty As team at John Kerkhof Park (12.30pm), looking to bounce back from last weekend’s Waikato Cup exit.

Waikato Division 4

Cambridge’s Division 4 team, who are undefeated so far in pre-season and competition this year, travel to Waikato University’s grounds to play Waikato Unicol Gold (12.30pm).

Over 35s

The D1 team heads to Hamilton’s Korikori Park for a 2.45pm encounter with Northern United Seniles.

The Cambridge 2 side is at home to Claudelands Rovers (12.30pm).

Sunday: Waikato Women’s Division 2

Cambridge host last season’s division title winners Thames in an 11am game at John Kerkhof Park.

These two sides were the best in their competition last year, providing entertaining football in both their league fixtures (of which they won one each).

Sunday: WaiBOP Y-League

The Cambridge U-15s play Papamora at John Kerkhof Park (1pm) and U-13s host Blue Rovers (Blue) at 11am.
