They had combined ambition, hard work and dogged determination to make an unlikely dream come true. Now, having won election to the Football League, Cambridge United players, officials and supporters faced new challenges to go with a new decade.
From 1970, there were forbidding new obstacles to surmount, different opponents to conquer, unfamiliar trials to face, in a world that was changing fast.
There were setbacks but also moments of triumph, and at the end of an amazing decade the club had risen to undreamed of heights – English football’s second tier.
Champagne & Corona, the third volume of the late Andrew Bennett’s exhaustive Celery & Coconuts history of Abbey/Cambridge United, examines the events of the years that truly put the club on the map.
With a foreword by star striker Alan Biley and written in Bennett’s distinctive, expressive style, it is vital reading for any fan of the beautiful game.
