Celery & Coconuts: Volume II – Risen from the Dust The Story of Abbey United and Cambridge United Football Club: 1951-1970 by Andrew Bennett Paperback;
In 1951, Cambridge United were a lowly United Counties League football club, although one with huge ambitions. As they prepared for their first season in the Eastern Counties League, they appointed their first full-time player-manager and looked towards the stars.
Supporters and players alike rolled their sleeves up and started work on the rapid rise that in 1970 took them to their promised land: the Football League.
Risen from the Dust, the second volume of Andrew Bennett’s brilliant Celery & Coconuts, the definitive history of an extraordinary club, takes readers on a breathtaking surge upwards through the leagues.
Backed by painstaking research and Bennett’s eye for a story, Risen from the Dust reveals what can be achieved by a community determined to succeed.
