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

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

Cambridge take on Lotto NRFL second division leaders Onehunga Mangere United this weekend.

The 3pm match on Saturday will be the feature of ‘Rod Larnach Day’ at John Kerkhof Park, a day to remember Life Member Larnach who died last year, aged 71.

Pandemic restrictions disrupted the club’s plans to honour the memory of Larnach last year so Saturday will be dedicated to him.

Here’s how the weekend shapes up:

Friday night football

Cambridge FC’s over-35s (team 2) head to Hamilton’s Gower Park for a 7pm match against Melville Old Boys.

Cambridge High School’s match against Hamilton Boys High, originally scheduled for Friday night, has been transferred to Hamilton and will take place on Saturday morning.

Saturday: Lotto NRFL second division

The Reds chase their third win in a row against Auckland clubs after Chatham Cup victory against Otahuhu United last week and at Uni-Mount Bohemian Celtic in their last league fixture.

Onehunga Mangere United come to Cambridge with 19 points from a possible 24, providing the incentive for fith-placed Cambridge to make inroads on the leaders with a win.

The first teams kick off at 3pm, while the clubs’ U-23s reserves play at 12.30pm.

Saturday: WaiBOP Championship

Competition leaders Cambridge travel to eighth-placed Te Awamutu for a 2.45pm game on Saturday.

Cambridge are two points clear at the top of the table and a win will keep up the pressure on nearest rivals Tokoroa, Tauranga Old Blues and Otumoetai.

Saturday: Waikato Division 1

Cambridge play St Paul’s Corinthians at John Kerkhof Park (2.45pm). Both teams are in the lower half of the table, looking to find the form that saw both in the top group of teams in last season’s Division 2.

Saturday: Waikato Division 4

Cambridge’s Division 4 team lead the competition on goal difference (from Tokoroa) after winning all of their five fixtures.

On Saturday, they meet third-placed West Hamilton United who are also undefeated and have a game in hand.

The match starts at 12.30pm at John Kerkhof Park.

Saturday: Over 35s

The D1 team travel to Hamilton’s Galloway Park to play Claudelands Rovers, starting at 12.30pm.

The Cambridge 2 side play Melville United Old Boys on Friday night (see Friday Night Football, above).

Sunday: Waikato Women’s Division 2

Cambridge play Huntly Thistle at the Huntly Domain (kick off 11am).

Sunday: WaiBOP Y-League

Both youth teams head to Tauranga for games on Sunday.

The Cambridge U-13s play Papamoa at Gordon Spratt Reserve (11am) while the U-15s meet Tauranga City at Links Ave (1pm).
