U’s increase attacking options with new addition
Reggie Lambe will provide Cambridge United with an additional attacking threat in the Sky Bet League Two campaign after becoming the club’s latest signing.
The 27-year-old current Bermuda captain has joined the U’s on a two-year deal after being released from Carlisle United.
He started his career at Ipswich Town, progressing through the youth ranks and making two appearances before joining Toronto FC.
Lambe made more than 50 appearances in the MLS before switching to Swedish side Nyköpings BIS for a three-month spell in 2014.
He returned to England with Mansfield in 2014, and then made the switch to Carlisle in 2016, making 80 appearances and scoring 14 goals.
“ I am absolutely delighted to finally put pen to paper at Cambridge United,” said Lambe, who can play across a number of forward positions and has 28 caps for Bermuda.
“It’s taken a while but there was never any doubt about my decision to sign for Cambridge.
“After speaking to the management staff about the focus and style of play for the upcoming season, the decision was made very easy for me.
“Now that the paperwork is out of the way I can fully focus on the work that matters on the pitch.”
Ben Strang, Cambridge United’s head of football, said: “We’ve admired Reggie’s qualities for a long time. He brings versatility and compliments the existing attacking options within the squad.
“From day one he was a priority target so we’re thrilled to complete the signing and look forward to working with Reggie for the next two years.
“He’s proven at the level, is a terrific team player, carries the ball well and is technically excellent.
“We firmly believe he’ll be a player that will excite our fans and contribute greatly to the team.”
