We have now reached the half way point in the 2020/2021 season. It has been a strange experience for supporters not being able to attend matches. Especially when the team is performing so well on the pitch and being the top of the league. However, it now when everyone’s support is even more appreciated. It is wonderful to see how supporters have got behind the club in some many different ways over recent months. It reminds me of the periods when the club was finding things difficult and everyone pulled together and got the club through those times. Hopefully during the coming months, we will remain United in Endeavour.
With the latest lockdown in place and no sign of when it will end it is even more important, we all come together and support each other.

Hopefully, now the vaccinations are starting to take place a return to some kind of normality may be possible. It is good to see a company associated with Cambridge United being at the forefront of this programme. I think we all would like extend our gratitude and thanks to everyone at AstraZeneca for the work that has so far taken place and taking place twenty-four hours a day.

There have been a lot of changes at Cambridge Fans United during recent weeks with new board members joining. I would like start by saying thank you and show my appreciation to Robert Osbourn who has now stood down as Chair due to ill health. He has helped me a lot over the years and has always been supportive of the ideas I have come up with. I hope everything gets back on track soon for him and he is back to full fitness soon.
I would also like to wish Andrew Stephen and Ben Phillips success with their plans in the future. CFU is coming up to being 21 years old this year. It needs to be representative of all supporters and members. During those years Supporters Trusts have had to change and adapt to different situations. Now there so many more ways and possibilities for representing and helping supporters. Find out more about the work that other supporters’ groups and trusts are undertaking by visiting the Football Supporters Association website https://thefsa.org.uk/ It was the groups AGM in December and the round up can be found here https://thefsa.org.uk/
Take care and look after yourselves.
