The publication of a complete statistical survey of Abbey/Cambridge United's century-plus history has long been one of 100 Years of Coconuts' central aims.
It's starting in a modest way but eventually this website will contain all the facts, figures and records any football statto or United fan could desire.
This venture has been made possible by the work of the late Andrew Bennett, whose later years were devoted to compiling the information that made possible the writing of Celery & Coconuts, the definitive history of Abbey/ Cambridge United (first two volumes on sale here). Despite Andrew's untimely death earlier this year, Coconuts will continue to publish Celery & Coconuts through its Lovely Bunch imprint.
Andrew's databases provide the most detailed examination of the club's history it's possible to imagine. Coconuts volunteers were staggered to discover just how much information he amassed. It's no exaggeration to say the task of collating and placing all this data in the public domain will take years. Please be patient.
Andrew Bennett: master of record-keeping
Eventually, you will be able to study all United's results, goalscorers, appearances and player records of days gone by.
They have started with the establishment of a new 'Data' page on the groups website and the publication of the first two full sets of Abbey United results: those from the 1913-14 and 1919-20 seasons. Head here and dig in.
