    It’s bizarre how similar Cambridge is to Oxford in this respects: two clubs, the more suburban one of which joins the FL to great success while the old city centre team suffers and has the ground sold from under their feet.

    Oxford City managed to fight back and built a tidy ground on the edge of town and they run a great setup. But as a spectator…I just can’t be bothered to trek out to the ringroad to a prefab ground.

    Good luck to both Cambridge’s proper clubs, but the place isn’t that big and isn’t really a traditional “football” town.

    Once Cambridge City leave the city it’s hard to see them ever returning at remotely the same level. Just look at the recent history of Slough Town to see how hard such a return is in the prosperous and NIMBY-governed South-east.

    I’ll be sad to see the end of Milton Road. It was there that a 1-0 victory sealed the Southern League Premier title for Tamworth in 2002/03 and promotion to the Conference for the first time.
    Chelmsford proved that it’s possible to return to your home city at a decent level, let’s hope Cambridge City follow suit.
