CB Groundworks are giving supporters the opportunity of a lifetime this May, to play on the Abbey turf alongside U’s legends…

Long standing commercial club partner CB Groundworks will be hosting an 11-a-side match at The Abbey Stadium on Wednesday 10th May to raise money for Cambridge United Community Trust and Ian Darler's Cambridge Charity Fundraisers.

The charity kick-about which will feature a host of famous Cambridge United names including Josh Coulson, Luke Chadwick, Andy Beattie, Andy Duncan, Robbie Simpson and Dan Gleeson, gives fans the opportunity to play on the famous pitch alongside Club legends.

There will be icons in the dug-out too, as Steve Fallon and Paul Wanless are confirmed as the two Managers for the game.

Kevin Johnson, CB Groundworks said, "We are delighted to be supporting two fantastic local charities with the end-of-season fixture on the hallowed turf of the Abbey.

"As a local company that has supported the Club for decades, it is a privilege to host this charity game that will see some of the best players who used to wear the famous amber and black shirts back on the grass. It is also great to give the supporters an opportunity to play alongside some of their heroes and show us what they have got!” 

Vicky Neal added, "Cambridge Untied Foundation is really grateful to be part of this fantastic event. The two charities values align so closely and the Abbey Stadium is a home for so many in the local community, we welcome events such as this that bring people together”.

Ian Darler added, "We are delighted and thankful towards Kevin Johnson at CB Groundworks for putting on this event. Since 2007, Cambridge Charity Fundraisers have been working tirelessly to help change lives for the better so the money raised will make a big difference to the local community.

Ticket entry is £100 per person, with every pound raised being split between both charities.
