No match


Wisbech Town Ladies 2 (A) : (A) 4 Cambridge City (Cup)

With a 3G pitch booked just in case it was needed, the Development squad travelled to the opposite end of the county to face Wisbech Town Ladies for this Cambs Junior Invitation Cup quarter final tie. Thankfully, the ground thawed and the match was played on good old fashioned green stuff!

City play a league higher than WTL and initially it showed with the amount of possession the visitors had early on. Having said that though, the home side were very well organised and fielded some strong and talented players.

The first strike went the way of the Lilywhites. Right winger Charlotte Gilles was causing endless problems for the home defence and she was rewarded when she put City in front. However, the lead was short lived when the WTL No 9 found herself in space and struck the ball first time, finding the net from 20 yards. A good strike.

With 30 minutes on the clock, City introduced Megan Tonks, who was making her comeback from a long term injury. This allowed Ellie Cullum to drop back into midfield. The arrival of 'out and out' striker Tonks had an immediate effect. Receiving a through ball down the left channel, she was able to find the right hand corner of the net. City took this lead into the interval.

Cup ties are rarely straightforward and this one was no different. Wisbech put themselves back into the game shortly after the restart when their No 9 (again) managed to shake off a couple of City defenders and fire over the keeper. Game on!

There followed a period where the game was end to end until City finally got the upper hand. Tonks made it 3-2 when she turned her marker and brilliantly hit home from 25 yards. A fourth and final goal for City came from Rachel Pearce when she floated in a lovely, direct free kick from at least 20 yards out.

With City now comfortably in control, the game was cut short by a few minutes and technically abandoned when a Wisbech player suffered a serious injury to her leg. An unfortunate end to a good cup tie. Everyone at City would like to wish the injured Wisbech player a speedy recovery.

Under 17s

Netherton United 0 : 14 Cambridge City

City headed north to Peterborough on Saturday morning and returned home having chalked up their biggest win of the campaign so far. The Lilywhites put on an impressive display and like the score would suggest, they were in charge from start to finish - though the home side should be congratulated for their superb attitude and desire. Striker and POTM Mo Want grabbed herself a double hat-trick. Alex Smith, Yas Abbioui and Katie Stancombe each got a brace and the other two goals were scored by winger Katy Ruston and midfielder Anna Kanz. A special mention to the City defence too, who were instrumental in some of the goals by their intelligent distribution from the back. Well done girls.

Alex Smith is congratulated at Netherton

Under 15s

Cambridge City 4 : 1 Priory Parkside

Facing Priory for the second time in three weeks, the home side were determined to improve a little on their previous display between the two and indeed they did - eventually! Yes, it took a little while for the Lilywhites to get into their stride and a few chances came and went, but once they found top gear, the visitors struggled to keep up with City. At times, the home side played some brilliant football, just lacked that finishing touch in front of goal. However, any concerns from the City management team turned out to be unfounded and with winger Aino Turunen delivering a superb performance down the right and causing so many problems for the visiting defence, it was inevitable that the goals would come. Thanks to a brace each from Turunen and Freya Standing, City ended up comfortable winners. On another day, City could have rattled in a few more, but these three points were still enough to move them up into second place, eagerly looking forward to next weeks match when they travel to third placed St Ives.

Under 12s

Cambridge City 2 : 0 Comberton Crusaders (Cup)

The U12s before their cup semi final success

With the weather beaten (just) it was down to the real contest. The prize at stake was a place in the Under 12s League Cup Final.

City started the stronger, with their attacking trio of Lucy Short, Emily White and Bella Alexsson a constant threat to Comberton from the outset. Half chances came and went but it seemed only a matter of time before City’s passing game would bring its rewards. Kitty Barker in goal combined well with Leah Holmes and Emily White before the ball fell to Bella Alexsson on the edge of the box. She struck the ball well, finding the bottom corner of the net to give City a deserved lead at half time.

The 2nd half produced more of the same, with City dominating, but failing to finish the game off with a string of missed chances. Comberton worked hard but were unable to really threaten the home side. Finally, City put the game to bed when Emily White's hard work was rewarded when she scored her 24th goal of the season.

City will now face Panthers (from Moulton) in the final, to be played at Newmarket FC on Saturday 19th May.

Under 11s

Don't they look smart! Thank you Beeson Property

The under 11s really love their Futsal. On Sunday evening they were special guests at the CUFCFUTSAL event where they gave the players a 'guard of honour'. They even had a game themselves. They have a smart new kit to go with their smart footballing skills. Thank you Beeson Property for your generous sponsorship - it really is appreciated.
