It was a weekend of mixed fortunes for CUPFC, as the 1st team made a return to winning ways while the Reserves were on the end of their third narrow defeat in a row.
The 1sts made the trip to Foxton on Saturday, hoping to earn their first win in four against the Kershaw Premier division's bottom side. It wasn't going to be an easy match, and that proved to be the case, as a late winner from James Godden helped CUP earn a 2 - 1 win and gain a valuable 3 points. Dan Heron was the other scorer, notching his 14th of the campaign.
The Reserves hosted Whittlesford United in their third home game of the season, aiming to end their run of narrow defeats and make progress in the league. Losing their keeper shortly before the match wasn't ideal, but found a capable stand in. A poor first 30 minutes proved to be the deciding, conceding three times, before dominating possession for the rest of the match and grabbing two late goals through Ryan Traynier and Adem Clark. Final score 3 - 2.
As we move into December this coming weekend, both teams will be hoping for unbeaten months. On Saturday, the 1st team host Cambridge City Development while the Reserves travel to Newmarket Town Reserves.
Before these matches, training continues at the Cass Centre on Tuesday night with a 6.45pm start.
