Cambridge is a personal favourite of mine, my partner is from there and for a short while in 2014, I worked a stone’s throw from the ground. In my time as a fan, they’ve been a regular fixture for us, and they are one of the few teams we will have played in three different division, the National League, League Two and the old Division Three.

At present, there are no familiar faces in their lineup, although that could well change over the summer. Cambridge haven’t beaten us in the Football league since 1995, when they won 2-1 at their place, and they haven’t won at Sincil Bank in the league since the 86/87 season.
