Together with Eastern Counties we are pleased

to recoginise Philip Baddeley as an "Exceptional Volunteer"

Phil

Not only is Philip a regular at our organised volunteer days, he is often spotted at Volac Park just pitching in where needed.

On top of this Philip is committed supporter, making many away trips and attending home lunches.

He markets us with his many Tweets and Facebook comments and sponsors players, offering accommodation and other assistance.

And probably many other things that I'm missing here.

I think our own Stef Liebenberg summed it up best here, "Rugby Clubs are nothing without people like this."

We thank-you Philip.

Taunton 30-20 CRUFC

Cambridge finished a successful season with a loss against promotion chasing Taunton, but as you can read in the Cambridge News there is much to be optimistic about for next season.

The season will be reviewed in greater depth at the end of season dinner but here a few highlights ...

  • Most starts, Albert Portsmouth starting 28 games, although a mention must also go to Jack Green, who along with Albert had 29 appearances.
  • Most minutes, not surprisingly also Albert, who played and impressive 2,300 minutes out of the 2,400 minute season
  • Most points, James Stokes, with 115
  • Most tries, Albert Portsmouth, with 14
  • Total number of players used, 47
  • Highest attendance 1,687 (Shelford), average attendance 513 (4th in the league), both up from the previous season


As a reminder there are still a few days left to vote for your player of the season.

Thank you for your support. We look forward to seeing you back at Volac Park in August for pre-season "friendlies" against Peterborough Lions on 22nd Aug, and Shelford on 29th Aug.

What a Super Saturday

Not only did the 1st XV win a try fest 56 - 49 over Canterbury (Cambridge News report here), but we also saw Exiles take on Canterbury 5ths, the presentation of Mini Colours, U15s take on Canterbury, Colts take on Burton and a Cleaver vs Cleaver birthday match.  And with 290 seated for lunch followed by live music and beer festival the large crowd were thoroughly entertained.

SuperSaturday

Finally we got a chance to say thanks and good-bye to Craig Newby as he heads to Japan, and thanks (but definitely not good-bye) to JJ as he steps down from his charmain's role.  You can tell from Saturday how far all aspects of the club have progressed in recent years under their leadership.
