Cambridge boss hopes FA Trophy success can come with promotion

Cambridge United manager Richard Money says its difficult to say whether their appearance in the FA Trophy is a bonus until the end of the season. The U's are bidding to end their nine year exile from the Football League by winning promotion from the Conference Premier Division.

Speaking ahead of Sunday's (March 23) Wembley final against Gosport, Money said, 'If we've been able to do what we've set out to do, and we've been able to win this in the meantime, then it will be a bonus. If the first thing doesn't happen, then we might look upon it a bit different".

Football fan given four-year match ban

A Cambridge United fan has been banned from attending football matches in England and Wales for four years.

Shane Rouse, 40, was convicted of a public order offence and obstructing a PC at Cambridge Magistrates' Court last week.

The charges related to his behaviour at Cambridge United's match against Nuneaton on 24 September.

Rouse, of Rogers Road, Swaffham Prior, Cambridge, was given a four-year football banning order and may also be made to surrender his passport when there are international fixtures.

PC Debbie Pearl, of Cambridgeshire Police, said: "We will not tolerate any type of anti-social behaviour and will take robust action against anyone involved in disorder at matches.

"This should be a warning to anyone who wants to get involved in disorder at matches, no matter how small it may seem."
