Watch Donovan Blake's report on Cambridge United's election to the Football League 50 years ago
When Cambridge United unveiled a limited edition all-white replica strip for their SkyBet League Two match against Newport in October, it got supporters thinking of the club's first forays playing in the Football League fifty years earlier.
Back in 1970, United finally succeeded in being elected as a league club after many failed attempts.
It's fair to say back then, winning a league place was more of a case of who you knew, rather than what you were good at.
Prior to 1987, clubs who finished in the bottom four of English Football's fourth tier had to seek re-election to keep their place.
Ambitious sides plying their trades in the Southern League and Northern Premier League often applied to be elected but success in being voted in by right was very rare.
Winning three Southern League under manager Bill Leivers, however, made it difficult for the establishment to ignore United.
For former players Brian Grant and Roly Horrey, the memories of being elevated from non league obscurity to Football League prominence are still fresh.
And a City famed for its academia was suddenly attracting interest from the wider sporting public.
