The A-Z of Cambridge United: A-E

Just started following the U’s but feel a bit out of your depth when complaining about stuff on the messageboard? Want to boost your knowledge of East Anglia’s best football team? Here’s our handy guide to CUFC in A-Z format.

A: Abbey Stadium

Our lovely home. Sure it’s seen better days, but there’s nowhere else on earth we’d rather watch football. A 10,000 capacity all-seater modern stadium off the A14? Keep it, mate.

B: Butler

Steve or Martin, if you watched the U’s in the 1990’s chances are you’d have seen one of these two bag a hatful of goals.

C: Corona

70’s fizzy pop, bottled behind the NRE which lends its name to the stands unofficial title – The Corona End. Also a 2020’s virus that’s put an end to us actually watching the U’s for the time being

D: Dion Dublin

Who else, the main man himself. Now a regular on Homes Under The Hammer, Dion was one of the most feared strikers in English football during the 1990’s, shooting United to within touching distance of the Premier League, before securing a seven figure move to Man United, as well as playing for Coventry, Villa, Norwich & Celtic. Has a bar at the Abbey named after him.

E: England

We’ve had a few former players called up to the national team including Andy Sinton, Dion, John Ruddy and current goalkeeper Nick Pope. It might not be many, but it’s more than that lot up the A1 have managed.
