This afternoon we welcome the supporters, officials and playing staff of Accrington Stanley to the Abbey Stadium. In the late 1960’s I was given a book which showed a turnstile that had been left derelict. It was from Accrington’s original ground. The photograph has always remained in my mind and is a constant reminder to me of how important it is that everyone works together to ensure their clubs not only survive but also flourish. The work and dedication of those involved and ensured Accrington were able to both re-form and then rise back through the leagues can only be admired. It was a remarkable achievement. Accrington are proof of what can be achieved when everyone works together as one.
In addition to Accrington supporters, we also welcome Pippa Luo Sawyer. She is 6 years old and today will be her first visit to the Abbey Stadium. Families and children are a really important part of match day experience at the Abbey Stadium. They are the future of the club. All supporters need to ensure that when visiting the ground, the atmosphere remains positive and at the end of the matchday those families and individuals coming for the first time will leave wanting to come back again. We need them to tell their friends & family that Cambridge United is a football club that they can be proud to visit and one that welcomes everyone to it.
Cambridge United have a zero tolerance of discrimination. Recently, there have been several incidents reported and it really important we eliminate them together. It is everyone’s responsibility to do whatever they can to achieve that. If there is an incident report it to a steward or ring the hotline

There is still a need for more Abbey Helpers and programme sellers on match days. If you are interested in helping or know someone who might be, please contact me 07703274034 or firstname.lastname@example.org These roles are important and really improve the match experience. They are often the first people that supporters meet and it is really important that this contact is a friendly, warm and informative one.
I am the SLO @ Cambridge United. This page will provide information concerning match days for both sets of supporters.
