Local derby matches between the Lilywhites and Cambridge United have always been hard fought affairs. None such more than the 2nd Leg of the Cambs Professional Cup om 1968, which had to be abandoned after 70 minutes when fighting broke out. Matches between the two clubs go back to 1933 when the Lilywhites were known as Cambridge Town and Cambridge United were known as Abbey United.
Cambridge United were founded in 1912 as Abbey United and have played at the Abbey Stadium on Newmarket Road since 1932. They had began live playing on Stourbridge Common before moving to a ground a little further along the Newmarket Road from the Abbey Stadium. This ground was often referred to as 'the celery trenches' because of its uneven playing surface that was not really suitable to play Cambs League football on and ss a result of this they were forced to abandon this ground and look for a new home, the Abbey Stadium. In the meantime they had to play on Parker's Piece. They remained known as Abbey United until become Cambridge United in 1952.
