Vote for United's Greatest Moment as part of upcoming book

7 August 2023

Cambridge United fans are being asked to have their say in deciding the greatest moment in the club's history...

The initiative ties in with a forthcoming book called Cambridge United’s Greatest Moments, which will be released in time for Christmas.

Fans can vote for one of 10 options chosen by a panel of fellow U's supporters with a view to finding the single greatest moment from the club's proud past.

Moment A: Cambridge 2-1 Gateshead

The sounding of the full-time whistle at Wembley on 18 May, 2014 after a seemingly endless period of stoppage time signalled United's long-awaited return to the promised land of the Football League.

Moment B: Ironside downs Magpies

In one of the biggest FA Cup shocks of all time, it was Joe Ironside's goal that downed Newcastle United in 2022 at a packed St James' Park to send the travelling amber nation into raptures.

Moment C: Simpson slays Shots

Regional football beckoned for the struggling U's but the in-form Robbie Simpson had other ideas as his winning goal secured a desperately needed 1-0 win in the Hampshire sunshine back in 2007.

Moment D: Dublin's Wembley winner

Dion Dublin's header proved the difference in the first ever Wembley play-off final as Cambridge emerged triumphant over Chesterfield in 1990.

Moment E: We've got our stadium back

After 18 years, the Abbey Stadium was officially returned into the ownership of the club on a momentous day in 2022.

Moment F: Election to the Football League

No longer content to be the best club outside of the Football League, the U's wanted their seat at the top table and finally got their wish in 1970.

Moment G: Rendell in the 119th minute

Scott Rendell scored in the final minute of extra time to send Cambridge to Wembley at the expense of Stevenage in 2009.

Moment H: Beck's boys scale new heights

Cambridge moved top of the second tier of English football on a memorable night at Ipswich Town in 1991.

Moment I: Turnstile rooftop celebrations

After a season spent watching from afar, U's fans got to celebrate with their promotion-winning heroes after a final-day win over Grimsby in 2021.

Moment J: We are staying up

A seven-point gap to safety had many fearing the worst, but Mark Bonner's Cambridge completed a miraculous turnaround to stay up on the final day in 2023.
