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

posted in: Men, News, Northern League

Cambridge spectators have five senior men’s and women’s fixtures to see at John Kerkhof Park this weekend.

On Saturday, the club will host only its second home game in the Lotto NRFL since the start of May when Beachlands Maraetai visit to play the Reds.

The last time Beachlands Maraetai came to Cambridge was for the second leg of the 2017 promotion play-offs series which saw the Reds promoted to the Lotto NRFL.

Here’s how the weekend shapes up:

Saturday: Lotto NRFL second division

The Reds will host third-placed Beachlands Maraetai in a double header at John Kerkhof Park.

Cambridge are eighth in the division and a win would provide a boost for players and supporters alike.

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 Tauranga Old Blues in search of their seventh win in a row.

Old Blues are one of the chasing pack and will provide Cambridge with their toughest opposition in weeks.

The game starts at 2.45pm.

Saturday: Waikato Division 1

Cambridge will play Hamilton Wanderers at John Kerkhof Park (2.45pm) after a two-week break.

Both teams are in mid-table.

Saturday: Waikato Division 4

Cambridge’s Division 4 team head to fourth-placed Huntly Thistle for a 12.30pm fixture.

Cambridge sit third on the table and need the win to stay in touch with the competition leaders.

The D1 team play West Hamilton United at Bremworth Park, Hamilton (12.30pm).

The Cambridge 2 side are at home to Ngaruawahia United (12.30pm).
