The 2011–12 season is the 99th full season in the history of Cambridge United, in which they will compete in the Blue Square Bet Premier, along with various cup competitions.


Cambridge United were founded in 1912 as Abbey United, named after the Abbey district of Cambridge. For many years they played amateur football until their election to the Football League in 1970. The early 1990s was Cambridge's most successful period; managed by John Beck the club won the first ever play-off final at Wembley Stadium and gained promotion from the Fourth Division before reaching two successive FA Cup quarter finals in 1990 and 1991 and winning the Third Division in 1991. The club reached the play-offs in 1992 but failed in their bid to become founder members of the Premier League.[1] This was the club's highest final league placing to date and since then it has been in almost constant decline.



Team kit[edit]

The team kits for the 2011-2012 season are produced by Italian manufacturers Erreà. The home kit is the same as used for the 2010-2011 season featuring an amber coloured shirt with black detailing, black shorts with amber detailing and black socks. The home sponsor is East Anglian ale Greene King IPA, whose logo appears in green in the centre of the shirt. For away matches where the home shirt is used, the away sponsors Kershaw appear on the home shirt instead. The new away kit for 2011-2012 has a light blue body with light blue left sleeve and dark blue right sleeve, light blue shorts with dark blue detailing and light blue socks. The away sponsors Kershaw have their logo in dark blue in the centre of the shirt. The white third kit is carried over from the previous season.
