Cambridge United’s lucky mascot?!

Newly-promoted Cambridge United start their Sky Bet League One season on 7 August with a home match against Oxford United. Kitted out in yellow and black, it’s not hard to guess which team Cows about Cambridge sculpture Four-Four-Moo will be supporting!

Players Jack Iredale, Harvey Knibbs and Andy Dallas came down to pick up some tips from the city’s four-hoofed wonder.

From her vantage point beside Kelsey Kerridge Sports Centre, Four-Four-Moo looks out over the green space of Parker’s Piece where the rules of modern football were first tried out nearly 150 years ago. A game of football using the ‘1863 Cambridge Rules’ was advertised in the sporting newspapers of the time and was played there at 2:15pm on 20 November. The new Cambridge Rules emphasised skill above force, and banned catching and ‘hacking’. They went on to form the basis of the first laws of the Football Association, published in December 1863.
