Some Cambridge United fans were heard booing before kick-off for yesterday’s League Two clash against Colchester.
As both sets of players took the knee before the match started, in a gesture that has become synonymous with the ‘Black Lives Matter’ movement and battle against racial injustice, some Cambridge supporters erupted into boos at the Abbey Stadium.
In a beautiful moment though, the rest of the U’s fanbase drowned out their bad apples with applause, reiterating that the entire club should be vilified for the controversial actions of some.
