Cambridge United are delighted to announce this weekend’s 12th Fan, and therefore leading the U’s out at the Abbey against Macclesfield Town, is David Roach.
As part of the #UnitedSince1912 campaign, the 12th Fan initiative supported by Mick George, will see a Cambridge United supporter profiled on the Club website and match day programme, occupy the number 12 shirt and lead out the U's at the Abbey Stadium on every match day in 2018/19!
Congratulations David! How long have you been supporting Cambridge United?
I have been supporting Cambridge United for 25 years now. What made me connect with the club was the number of legends that have played for us through the years.
Which stands have you watched the games from? Have you always been in the same place or have you moved around the ground?
When I first started coming with my dad and my brother, I used to sit in the family stand. Nowadays I am supporting the Club from the Newmarket Road End.
What is your best memory of supporting the club and why?
The best memories of the club for me was the 2013/14 season with the FA Trophy and then gaining our place back in the Football League again at Wembley Stadium. There was such a great atmosphere at both games and the yellow pages were flying everywhere.
Everybody at Cambridge United would also like to wish David a belated very happy birthday for last Saturday, and we hope you enjoy your day as the 12th Fan this afternoon.
The full interview with David can be found in tomorrow’s match programme, available around the Abbey Stadium for just £3. Ticket information can be found by clicking here.
