A family-run Newmarket business – which sponsors Cambridge United FC – celebrated the U’s promotion success when the club’s newest piece of silverware was given centre stage.

Steve, Julian and Sammy Pope, of Pope’s Cafe and Sandwich Bar in Valley Way, are lifelong supporters and sponsors the team that won promotion to the Football League.

“We attend nearly all their matches home and away,” said owner and father Steve, pictured left.

“It is like a dream come true, helping the local club. The day we won promotion was the best day of my life. We were in the Bobby Moore suite and had the best seats in the house.”

Pope’s will continue to sponsor the team next season.
