Match Previews


9 January 2017


Take a sneak peek at tonight’s Emirates FA Cup special edition of the Match Day Programme ahead of Cambridge United’s Third Round tie against Leeds United at the Cambs Glass Stadium (KO 7:45pm).

The 72-page programme will be available for just £3 at sellers around the grounf, in the Club Shop on Newmarket Road, the Retail Outlet located at the rear of the Mundipharma Community Stand and the CFU Van in the front car park.

Here’s a sneak preview of Cambridge United Manager Shaun Derry’s programme notes:

“When the draw was made last month, we couldn’t have asked for many better fixtures than a home tie against former winners of the competition.

This tie of course has particularly poignancy for me personally, having thoroughly enjoyed my time as a player for Leeds United across three great years at Elland Road. It’s a magnificent club with a passionate fan base, who I’m sure will make themselves heard this evening.

However, the prospect of a Cambs Glass Stadium packed to the rafters for another thrilling event for everyone associated with the Club is most certainly the biggest excitement.

The players are absolutely relishing the opportunity to go toe-to-toe against an opposition who currently compete two Leagues above and are striving to ply their trade in the country’s highest division. The fact the match is in front of the TV cameras and under the floodlights gives the occasion that little bit extra too.”
