The country may be in thick of World Cup fever, but Cambridge City begin their preparations for the domestic season tomorrow night as they entertain their league neighbours, Cambridge United at Bridge Road.

Itís been over 2 months since City suffered play-off final heartbreak at the hands of Hartley Wintney. In the wake of that defeat, boss Robbie Nightingale set about building a side for what he hopes will be another crack at promotion back to the Southern League top flight.

The core of the squad from last season remains which includes the likes of Jordan Gent, Ben Robinson, Ryan Towner and Ryan Sharman to name but a few. New additions have been added with goalkeeper Liam Gooch, defender Jack Wilkinson and striker Lewis Whitehead. With their being the best part of six weeks to go until the official league kick-off, more new names will no doubt be added to the City side as the weeks tick by.

United visit Bridge Road for their second pre-season outing after comfortably winning at St Neots on Saturday. Manager Joe Dunne looks set to have a number of players available and may take the opportunity to play as many of his squad as possible as he builds up to the big kick off against Port Vale on 4 August.

The match is the first time for a few seasons that the two teams have played each other in pre-season and it is the first of 7 warm up matches City will play with the next one being at Newmarket Town on Friday night.

Kick-off at Bridge Road is at 7:45pm.
