FIELDS CLOSED

The idea of Cambridge Park Football Club was conceived in 1968, at the time most of the boys of the area played for Londonderry but trained at Cambridge Park. As a result of a meeting of Messrs. K Smith, B Whiticker, E Wilson, K Ramsay, J Newton, N Weekes and Mrs K McDonald, it was decided to call a public meeting with a view of forming a Football Club.
