This afternoon we welcome the supporters, officials and players of Lincoln City to the Abbey Stadium. Most Cambridge United supporters will remember a previous visit when the clubs played each other in 1970 for the U's first Football League match in front of 6,843 spectators. That encounter finished in a draw with Colin Meldrum heading home the equaliser. You can read the Light Blue report for the 15th August 1970 via the https://tinyurl.com/2feeex33 on the 100yearsofcoconuts web site. 100yearsofcoconuts follows the history of club. If you have visited their website. I would recommend you pay it a visit www.100yearsofcoconuts.co.uk there is so much rich history surrounding Abbey United and Cambridge United.
During the summer there has been a spectacular art exhibition around Cambridge which has proved to be extremely popular with anyone viewing it. The exhibition called Cows about Cambridge featured 44 large ones and 46 mini cows at different locations around the city.
One of the most visited Cows was positioned outside Parkside swimming pool and for Cambridge United supporters it became a must see exhibit. Today, it joins us at the Abbey Stadium, so if you missed it previously you can see the cow outside the Abbey Arms before or after today's match. Why not have your photo taken with it?
On the 23rd September, the large cows will take centre stage at an auction to raise money for the charity Break The auction will take place at 7pm at the Graduate Hotel and will be hosted by celebrity auctioneer and TV personality Charles Hanson. Charles is famous for his appearances on BBC's Bargain Hunt, Antiques Road Trip and Flog it. To register your interest here: Charity Auction - Cows about Cambridge 2021 : Cows about Cambridge 2021
This will be your opportunity to own the Cambridge United cow by bidding on the evening. It could become a feature in your office, front room or garden. It is I am told extremely well behaved and is also house trained. Wherever you want to keep it, the cow will be a unique one off item of football memorabilia.

Break give vulnerable children and young people the time, support, and love they need to achieve their full potential.
