Blues to face U’s

Blues have announced their second pre-season friendly, and they will look forward to the visit from a strong Cambridge United team on Saturday July 28, kick-off 3pm.

The U’s finished the season strongly following the dismissal of Shaun Derry, with new boss Joe Dunn leading them to 12th spot in League 2 with 64 points from 46 games and wrapping up the campaign with a 5-0 hammering of Port Vale.

Their League Cup “run” ended at the first stage as an understrength side went down 4-1 at Bristol Rovers, while in the FA Cup they beat National League highflyers Sutton United before losing at Newport County.

It will be Abbey Stadium club’s first visit to Stortford since July 2014 when the sides fought out a goalless draw.
