A large and appreciative crowd enjoyed a 3-3 draw when the Paul Daw testimonial match at Saffron Walden Town took place on Sunday, February 5.
Played between a SWTFC XI and a club legends team, the match raised money for the newly named Paul Daw Stand at Catons Lane, honouring a man who has dedicated much of his life to the Bloods and who served as Cambridge United secretary in the mid-1980s. He also wrote and published the first books devoted to U's history: United in Endeavour and On the Up.
Coconuts patron Luke Chadwick was among the goals and Sir Trevor Brooking was in attendance at the United-sponsored game. Among United representatives were chairman Dave Doggett, secretary Andy Beattie, fans' elected director Dave Matthew-Jones, players Josh Coulson and Liam O'Neil and 100 Years of Coconuts committee member Andrew Bennett.
