Meet a Team - Cambridge Legends

Cambridge athletes reuniting for New Zealand Masters Games

In February 2017, a group of friends will reunite in Whanganui to compete on the football pitch at the New Zealand Masters Games.

Tony McIsaac is one of the ‘Cambridge Legends’, a group of “40 and 50 somethings” who play regularly in the WaiBop Waikato A Division winter senior football competition.

“In the Waikato there is no over 35s or over 45s competition, so we were playing mostly against players in their 20s! We were actually still pretty competitive and since 2007 we’ve won four League Championships and several Cup Competitions.”
