During the 1960's the Cambridge News produced the sports paper called the Sports Review and later on the Light Blue each Saturday during the football season.
100yearsofCoconuts have been donated copies of the Light Blues by Trevor Hobson-Frohock covering the period from the 60's
Everyone of a certain age will remember the Light Blue that was produced on a Saturday evening within hours of the match ending. Remember it was in the days before modern technology and techniques were in place.
Phones were hardwired in those days and reports had to be rung in by the journalist and then transcribed. It would then need to be set up manually so the paper could be printed. The Cambridge News offices were based in Newmarket Road at the time
We have been able to re-produce the weekly copies on line for your information. Below is a selection from 1964 and 1965 season.
We hope you enjoy reading the papers and also the memories they hold within them
Thank you to James Taylor for scanning the copies and enabling us to enjoy them again
