The Supporters Trusts of Peterborough United and Cambridge United are working together ahead of the Chris Turner Memorial Match at the ABAX Stadium on Saturday, August 1 (3pm, kick off).

Posh Supporters’ Trust chairman John Henson said ‘There has always been healthy rivalry between Peterborough United and Cambridge United. We miss our local derby, it was always a good day whenever we met. We want to come together with our friends

at the Cambridge United Trust to celebrate the life of Chris Turner, who played for and managed both clubs’.

Details are being finalised, but plans include joint charity bucket collections, and the production of a specially embroidered commemorative team shirt.

Chairman of Cambridge Fans United David Matthew-Jones added “We approached our friends at the Peterborough United Trust to discuss how we could work together to commemorate Chris Turner, and to support the charity proposed by his family, the

Glenfield Care Centre. We plan to work together to make it a day to remember, for all the right reasons.”

Fans are reminded that this match is all-ticket. No tickets will be sold on the day of the game.

All profits from the game will be donated to Glenfield Care Centre who cared for Chris for many years towards the end of his life.

Admission for all areas is £10 for Adults, £10 for Seniors (60+), £10 for 18-21s, £5 for Juniors Under 18.
