Cambridge spectators have the chance to watch men’s, women’s and youth football at John Kerkhof Park this weekend.

Saturday’s feature game will see competition leaders Cambridge host Papamoa in the WaiBOP Championship (2.45p) while on Sunday, the club’s women’s and U-15 and U-13 youth teams all play at home.

Here’s how the weekend shapes up:

Saturday: Lotto NRFL second division

The Reds will look to bounce back from last weekend’s loss to league leaders Onehunga Mangere United with a positive performance against Franklin United at Pukekohe’s Bledisloe Park.

Franklin are eighth on the table, two places behind Cambridge, but only one point separates them.

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

How to get there
