Cambridge United Focus

Jez George is pushing the boat out to mark the United centenary. Adriano Moke (York City), Jonathan Hedge (Tamworth), Scott Garner (Grimsby Town), Tom Elliott (Stockport County), Billy Gibson (Yeovil), Ricky Wellard (AFC Wimbledon) and today’s signing Sam Smith (Lincoln City) are on his list of captures with transfer fees paid out in 4-5 cases.   The Black and Amber gamblers are certainly going for it, but this is a big side, full of quality that will most certainly be there or thereabouts this season and it has to be said, one that should be a pleasure for the Abbey faithful to watch.


STMI take a look at Cambridge United,  Here are Ticket prices for all BSP Away supporters prices  and please feel free to bookmark our  Blue square zone for when you are playing the Imps – HERE. The guide will start with the preseason results, transfers in & out, plus the released and new deals list. Then we will have a glance at the  summer sound-bites (most recent to last) and finally the current confirmed squad as at 2nd August.  STMI thank fans who correct us when we have got it wrong. It shows there is a kindred spirit that seems to care and share in the Blue Square. Rare amidst the greed culture of our national game and the financial walk of life. But while we have Saturday…..
