MINUTE’S SILENCE – JACK MERRITT AND SASKIA JONES
Cambridge United will holding a minute’s silence ahead of kick off as a mark of respect to Jack Merritt and Saskia Jones, who tragically lost their lives last Friday in the London Bridge attacks. Both had a strong connection with our city: Saskia studied and worked at Cambridge University, and Jack was born, brought up, studied, and lived here. Jack's family and friends will be joining us at tomorrow's fixture, and we ask all supporters to join us in remembering them both.
