This afternoon we welcome the supporters, officials and players of Sunderland to the Abbey Stadium. I remember visiting Roker Park in 1992. We were heading towards the Division 2 play-offs and Sunderland were due to play Liverpool in the FA Cup Final shortly afterwards. The match ended in a 2-2 draw, but what I remember most is how friendly the supporters were to each other and the genuine warmth shown to us on the day. It also highlighted how important the atmosphere inside the ground was and how much it could influence a match. When the Sunderland supporters got behind their side the encouragement was terrific and team was lifted. If we could do the same on match days, I am sure the team would welcome it and the opposition fear it. Be Loud, Be Proud and Be United 100yearsofcoconuts have recently organised a re-print of Andrew Bennett’s Celery & Coconuts Series of Books. The series of four books can be purchased either singularly or as a set. The books are online via the CFU shop https://tinyurl.com/nk3mjwzs or from the Programme Exchange outside the club shop on matchdays. They tell the remarkable story of the club and provide an insight into the people and events that makeup the history of Abbey United and Cambridge United. I would recommend anyone interested in the club to have a set on their bookshelf.
The CUFCLottery was recently re-launched and the number of players each week has increased. The lottery provides improvements to both Club and supporter amenities at the Abbey Stadium, as well as local community projects. Examples of projects funded by the Lottery included the purchase and installation of the two new scoreboards, various hand-dryers and a wealth of materials to improve the pitch and the around the ground.
